Any ways, with a craving for a little adventure we hopped in the car to see where the road would take us. We drove past paradise where the pavement turned into dirt and kept going. We ended just before this small dirt road hooks up to the Ogden canyon, I know crazy, and then because of our growling tummies decided to turn around. We had dinner at one of the best Mexican restaurants, La Tormenta (a little restaurant that really makes you feel like you are in Mexico), and then headed over to Sam's Club to stock up on some pumpkins, which was actually quite entertaining. For some reason, whenever I go into Sam's I feel like I am five again and have this strange urge to run around the store, look and see everything, and do cartwheels down the candy isle. Don't ask why, because I couldn't tell you. Any who, after that we headed back to our house, put on Hocus Pocus and started carving. Ashton decided to tackle his pumpkin using, of course, power tools, which cut his carving time in half. Ashton finished his pumpkin first so he got out a bag of frozen strawberries and a couple other things and made everyone VIRGIN strawberry daiquiris, which were AMAZING (I know, my husbands cool). As we gutted our pumpkins, we baked up some seeds for a snack on the side, more yummy goodness. Any who a couple of hours later this is what we have... Me carving
My pumpkin, the Little Mermaid. PS I totally didn't use a stencil, oh yeah!!!
