The evening started with a date with a super cute 3 year old and ended with some family pumpkin carving. The date began at a place where a few of my past dates began- my old college dorm! Yes, that is correct. I took my child to the place where I lived my freshman and sophomore year in college for Trick or Treat. It was so much fun to wander the halls where I made so many memories and to make a new memory with my little man. Let me tell you, he loved it and has a stuffed candy bag to prove it. I loved that the dorm looks the exact same and I had a hard time believing that it had been 10 years since I was there passing out candy and ooohing and ahhhing over the cute little kids. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed the time with just Clark. We might have even hit up Chick-Fl-A afterward. We will be adding this to the Fall Must Do list.

On the way home from our date the little alien asked if we could "cut the pumpkin" when we got home. I agreed and that is just what we did. We ate our dinner, fed the babies and "cut the pumpkin". No, it is not the most beautiful jack-o-lantern ever, but at one time I was cutting out eyes and holding a baby at the same time, so yes I think it is pretty good! ha! Clark was a little disgusted with the interior of a pumpkin, but he sure did like the finished product and I loved the whole evening. I loved the cool weather, the dorm date, the easy clean up dinner, the glowing pumpkin and the memories made. I just loved it all. It is evenings like this that I want to document and hold on to so that on evenings that are wild and all three are screaming and I am in tears or evenings when they are grown and the house is quiet that I will want to pull out this memory and re-live it- ALL of it.
