pumpkin time

During October I enjoyed anything pumpkin I could get my hands on... great harvest pumpkin spice bread, dairy queen pumpkin pie blizzard, costco pumpkin pie, trader joe's pumpkin butter and if that wasn't enough I made my favorite pumpkin chocolate chip bread (recipe from Annette)... yum!
I also did a lot of decorating with pumpkins. Rich thought it was pretty funny (a little crazy) that I couldn't stop buying them (there were too many fun colors and varieties!)..haha.
So it was only fitting that we finish the month of October off with the "Pumpkin Chuckin'" festival in Moab. Yes, that's exactly what they do- chuck pumpkins! Jess works for the Youth Garden Project which puts on the festival every year. It was fun to see Jess in action (even with a sprained ankle) and meet many of her coworkers. We had a great time hanging out with Jess and Nick and of course who doesn't love watching pumpkins fly through the air?
