Pumpkin Carving

OK , OK so this isn't technically a free date. But it is still cheaper than dinner and a movie. You have to give me credit for that.

It was all inspired by this little thing.

How cute is that? Sweet B's grandma sent that to her. Grown in her very own garden!

Since it is Halloween season, we decided to carve bigger pumpkins as a family for date night.

It was a lot of fun to introduce this tradition to our Sweet B. Both hubby and I realized that neither of us had carved a pumpkin in around 6 years. Crazy!

And I forgot how much fun it is!

Sweet B normally has a short attention span and doesn't stay in one place very long but she loved this! She was content to play with her pumpkin until we were all done.

I also forgot how absolutely disgusting the insides feel on your hands. Gross!

It was well worth it though.

I received three very important things out of this date. Jack-O-Lanterns on our front porch. A new memory and tradition for our little one. And quality time with my hubby.

That's a whole lot of happiness for only $9 (if I do say so myself).
