Happy Halloween!

It’s that time again!  Halloween is finally here and the kids costumes are right down to the nitty gritty {obviously!}.  Stay tuned next week for photos of their costumes straight from their favorite movie, “It’s make your mama’s proud time”!  They were super stoked to try on their costumes! {see the sneak peak on my IG feed!}

Our first stop to get ready for Halloween is a visit to Pa’s Pumpkin Patch to tour the very, very busy patch and shoo those flies away!  My Viking guy was more concerned about waving those flies away than looking at my camera.  It was such a hot afternoon!  There were lots of jumping bounce houses and rickety rides for the kids {they kinda scared me a little!}.

I really loved the giant pumpkins everywhere, they added so much character with their different shapes and bumps!

By the way, all these oranges and yellows make it really hard to get a great shot with the colors reflecting straight onto their faces.  For once, I was happy with direct sunlight!

Hope you guys out there have a fun and safe Halloween!
