Fall has arrived and Halloween is just around the corner. Casey and I have just moved into our new house and she can’t wait to give out candy for Trick-or-Treat and to carve out a jack-o-lantern to put on our front porch. (I will have to miss Trick-or-Treat because I have tickets for a Pearl Jam show at the soon-to-be-closing Spectrum, but don’t worry, Casey will be joining me for the second show.)

Even though it'll be the first in our new house, this won’t be our first pumpkin carving. We have done this the past two years. On Saturday we will be making our second trip to Strawberry Acres to pick our pumpkin.

Strawberry Acres has a great atmosphere to it. It is a working farm, so there are animals running around and other farm-like things going on. It is a perfect place to go if you have kids, with its hayride, little playground, and an area to pet the farm animals.

Last year we skipped the hayride, but I hit up the playground and we both were petting the animals. The playground actually has a radical tube slide.

On the way out, don’t forget to grab an apple for the ride home. They probably have the most delicious apples ever.
