Healthy Halloween!

Have a healthy halloween! We made these jack o’lanterns out of oranges! 8) The idea is that you fill them up with fruit and other healthy good things instead of the brutal madness of sugar. We made up a bunch of them for Phoebe’s pre-school party and I couldn’t resist nabbing this shot. When the kids get them, they won’t have lights in them though. hehheeehh… 😉


Punkin’ Patch

A couple of weeks ago now we went to the grand province of Manitoba to visit Meandher Creek Pumpkin Patch – Where Fun Grows! And let me tell you, fun does indeed grow there!  There were tons of activities for the kids and a zillion photo ops. First of all, it was inexpensive to get in the door. Admission was $3bucks each, Ethan got in free. So for less than $10 bones, you’re into pumpkin madness. Second of all, there is no shortage of stuff to do when you get in! They’ve got a hay ride to tour the farm. There’s a little tractor pulled wagon ride. There’s a store with snacks and tickets for all the activities. There’s a zip line, corn maze, hay labyrinth, pumpkin catapult, corn canon, petting zoo, etc. There’s a metric tonne of fun to be had. Plus, they sell (bet you didn’t guess it) pumpkins of every shape and size and variety. It was super fantastic! 😆 We highly recommend checking them out if you want a great way to spend an afternoon. The farm is near Oak Lake, MB which is 186km from Oxbow ~ so less than a 2 hour drive. Cool stuff!!! 8)
