The great pumpkin adventure

Last Saturday the Armstrong gang set out for a weekend exploration. We decided to go for a casual walk along the coast line of Todd harbour in Brentwood Bay. A neat adventure as we saw the old remains of a cement company that functioned in the area during the early 1930's.

After our afternoon walk we hit up a local market for some yummy fresh produce. To our surprise this is when the great pumpkin adventure began. The field adjacent to the market was full of wonderfully orange pumpkins, and as being so close to Halloween we decided to let the girls go for a wonder through the field. What a fun thing to watch, Thalia picking up pumpkins that mostlikely as heavy as she! Then watching as Alyssa and Thalia try to carry the pumpkin through the field. Also thank goodness for "muscles Samantha" as she very skillfully pushed a wheelbarrow through the field loaded with six pumpkins of varying sizes.

The girls paying for the six great pumpkins. On the last weekend of the month we will be having a great pumpkin carving session at the Armstrong household. I'm sure it will be a wonderful time as we create some spooky jack'o'lanterns....
