Fall Pumpkin Festival in Boston

Summer's over and fall has blown in quickly. Before it got real cold, we took a little trip to see our friends Aaron and Shara in Boston. We took the Chinatown bus on Friday after work. It is definitely the cheapest way to travel! There was a pumpkin festival in Boston Commons Park which was perfect because we love to carve pumpkins. They provided the pumpkins and people just showed up to carve. Unfortunately, most people focused on the quantity of the pumpkins (they were going for 30,000 this year!) instead of doing quality work. So our pumpkins put them to shame as you can see.

It was a fun festival. At Boston Common with George. It was a spectacular sight to see all 30,000 pumpkins lit up. I'm not sure who lit them all, but it must have taken a while! Some had Christmas lights in them, but most were lit with little candles.

That looks so fun! I wish Rob and I could have been out there too and joined in the fun.

I would think lighting 30,000 pumpkins takes like a year. I don't understand! It looks really fun though.
