Stories from our lives here on the Front Range of Colorado. Lots of mountain bike adventures, ski days, hikes, pictures of Cooper and Lauren, our two dogs and anything else I choose to pontificate about.
In the past we have had great weather, and have been able to get some good pics of the kids in there costumes. ( I was just commenting that Joel still has up Cooper 2 yr photo on facebook.) So, becuase we live in Colorado we were due a cold Halloween, and sadly it was not just cold, but really windy. So We were only out Trick or Treating for about 15/20 mins. Joel and Cooper did go back out after Lauren and I decided we could hand out candy in the warm house. Lauren also found it it was just as fun to put candy in her bucket from Mom's candy bowl.
Here are a few pics. again sadly we did not get any great ones...but there are still good to have.
As you can see the wind was blowing us away, but it was still Halloween, so we all had fun.
As I said last post, we really like the pumpkin patches. We found Anderson farm last year with the Turners, and were excited to go back this year. They have lots to do, and we again we had a beautiful day to enjoy all the offerings. The big trick is to show up early. So we hit the doors when they opened. Cooper of course had to go on the peddle cars. He must of gone about 50 laps. The most entertaining part, was if he had no one to race he would slow down until someone caught up with him.
Go, Go, Go.......
Lauren on the other hand was content to have Dad push her around the course. Which is not easy.
Mom and Lauren racing around...
Go faster, Daddy!
After the cars, we headed over the pumpkin chunckin.... which is really cool. They have sling shots where you can launch smaller squash at some targets. Both the kids enjoyed it, but you really had to pay attention or one of the kids would be hitting each other , accidentally of course.
Cooper is ready to take aim
One, two, three..... go
Waiting for some big pumpkin smashing
After the chunkin, we tried the corn maze. Cooper was more interested in it, then the rest of us, but Lauren was riding in a wagon, and we made it through the first 12 check points. We had a great time, and are thankful to live in such a beautiful place.
