In the fall we took a drive up to Provo Canyon to have a picnic. I forget how beautiful Utah can be in the fall! California is kind of brown year round and Washington is green year round, so it was nice to see the trees change.
We didn't make it to a corn maze this year, which kind of bummed me out, but we were able to go to this small farm thing for free with Bryan's brother's work. They are not usually open at night which is when the free thing was and they weren't very equipped to host night-time activities. They had a corn maze, but to get you it you had to go on a hay ride in the pitch black night and then do the maze in pitch black as well, so we skipped on it. They did have a giant hard plastic tarp thing set up on a hill that Max enjoyed and he like the petting zoo area enough, but only touched the animals because I told him to.
Every kid got a free pumpkin and Max chose this poor little sap. We convinced to pick a different one, but I feel bad about making him switch. I like him to choose things for himself and let him enjoy the choices he makes.
Max INSISTED on being Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates on the Disney Jr. Channel, even though he's watched the show maybe twice. Our ward Halloween party was the Saturday before Halloween and people did a great job decorating their rooms for trick-or-treating!
I'm pretty sure all he ate for dinner was a roll and a cookie.
It took Max a few rooms to figure out the whole trick-or-treating thing.
Indiana Jones themed!
All Max cared about were the suckers.

We finally carved our pumpkin last minute on Halloween.
Hermoine! I always wanted to be Hermoine for Halloween because I could just brush my hair to make it big, but it didn't end up nearly as fluffy as I thought it would!
We went trunk-or-treating at the cousin's ward and by this time Max pretty much had the hang of it.
He was the cutest little Jake!
Afterward we did a bit of door-to-door trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.
