Mel and I decided to scope out a pumpkin patch in Santaquin, UT and carve pumpkins! (Fulfulling #6 of her funtastic fall activities) It was sooo much fun, even though it was unexpectedly cold. Next time I'll take gloves and a hat- really windy- but luckily I had my own personal heater strapped to my tummy. :) (The Frog was good and slept the whole time.)
We decided we wanted to go to a Thai restaurant we visited with friends awhile back, but couldn't remember it's name or location- only that it was in an old house. I emailed Tay the night before to find out what it was, but he didn't get back to me before we left. LUCKILY, he texted me right as we were doing google searches on my iPhone trying to find just any old Thai place, and we ended up back at Thai Village, in American Fork- two thumbs up from this girl! The pad thai and masman curry were both delish!
So, after getting it to go and scarfing to our little hearts' content, we began the carving and the hot chocolate (pumpkin carving calls for hot chocolate, no?). I decided to make my family in pumpkins, and Mel helped me so she could save her pumpkin to do fun learning activities with her 2nd grade class. By the time Mel finished carving a Jaykin and I finished my self pumptrait (haha, go me) we decided to save our Frog carving for another night to be enjoyed by the happy couple. (that's Jay and I)
Finally, we wrapped up the evening with a little apple pie made by my could-make-a-tasty-pie-out-of-an-old-boot-mother-in-law who so lovingly made them for us during her visit, and watched Stardust. What an awesome evening.
