Jack-o-lanterns


Sunday morning we went to Bob's Corn and Pumpkin Farm in Snohomish. We enjoyed some tasty popcorn, took a ride on a tractor to their pumpkin patch and picked up some pumpkins to carve later in the afternoon. In almost ten years I've lived in the U.S. I must confess I had never carved a pumpkin for Halloween. And you can tell because I did a pretty poor job —mine are the two to the right, Michelle did the big one.
El domingo por la mañana fuimos a Bob's Corn and Pumpkin Farm en Snohomish, donde comimos auténticas palomitas de maíz que estaban buenísimas, fuimos en tractor al huerto de calabazas y cogimos unas cuantas para esculpirlas luego por la tarde. En casi diez años que llevo viviendo en Estados Unidos tengo que confesar que nunca había esculpido una calabaza por Halloween. Y se nota porque las dos que hice —la del centro y la de la derecha— salieron regular. Michelle hizo la grande.

  1. Nice looking pumpkins! Now that you've discovered how messy this tradition can be, will you do it again next year? Did anyone bake a pumpkin pie? Glad you had the experience, and I'm sure it was fun.

  2. I certainly will. It was a lot of fun. We had pumpkin pie too, only the one you buy at Albertson's.

  4. Love the pumpkins in your blog banner! We have a pumpkin party every year. BYOP (bring your own pumpkin) with dinner by the campfire after it is dark. Your pumpkins bring a smile to my face!
