Pumpkin Pandemonium!

Had a great time dropping off our pumpkin and checking out the other 1000's of pumpkins on display at this year's Sorauren Park Pumpkin Parade. This annual Nov 1st event has really taken off. There were lines of pumpkins surrounding the park, and 100's of people, pets and kids admiring the carving talent, dropping off new pumpkins and taking photos. The atmosphere was like a fall fair. If only there was some live music. Hmmmm...Maybe an enterprising band looking for some exposure, will set up an impromptu concert in the park next year. A good time was had by all. The crowds were so thick this year, we didn't have time to navigate all the way around the park in the 40 minutes that we were there (we had a chicken pot pie in the oven), but i still managed to take some photos of some spectacular pumpkins. Enjoy!

Being the proud Papa of a 7 day old, these ones spoke to me:

And here is a medley of super awesome carving talent:

Did I miss the big announcement post or something!? CONGRATS!!! I'll peek in strollers/carriers in the coming days to see if I spot a newborn and say hi! (and hopefully it'll be you)
