This One, Mom!

SDP  10-25-11
Marion's son, Griffin, spotted the perfect pumpkin at Whole Foods in downtown Sarasota, and couldn't resist scaling to the top of the stack to pick it out. Then, he found another one, which was even larger. Having captured this photo, and seeing that Griffin was attempting to lift a sizeable orange squash nearly his own weight, SDP staff set aside their camera long enough to help Griffin and his mom hoist Perfect Pumpkin #2 from the 'patch'. For the record...Griffin can pick big pumpkins. Happy carving!

Nothing like that here, the French have decided once and for all that Halloween was nothing but commercial crap. They just don't even know how much fun it is... You've just reminded me that short of carving, I need to get out my big ceramic Jack o'lantern!

I think mom is trying to steal one. I havent carved a pumpkin in years, I bet he has fun.

It's not that easy to carve a pumpkin is it?? I don't know we don't do it here in Australia, but they have such hard skin. Looks like there will be fun in the US of A this weekend. Enjoy!

Fun, SRQ. This is one of the things that made being a kid fun and later being a parent fun.
