This weekend, I took the Wee One to the Second Street Market. They were having a free pumpkin decorating event. Since he is 12 years old, I decided to take him because it would probably be the last time he would be able to do the decorating. He did not want to go at first but then ended up having a blast creating Jeff, his pumpkin.
They had feathers, stickers, pom poms, rolling eyes, and pipe cleaners to use to decorate your pumpkin. You could use a nail to help poke holes in your pumpkin so you could add the feathers and pipe cleaners. Since the Wee One is older than most of the children, I allowed him to safely poke holes in his pumpkin. He had a blast doing that.
The final product – Jeff the pumpkin
There is one vendor we go to whenever we are at the Market. They have the best granola and jams. The Wee One enjoys picking out a jam or jelly while I get my favorite granola.
Another vendor at the market sells hand crafted Popsicle. The Wee One enjoys squeezing Wilbur the pig. He was not going to get a Popsicle at first but then changed his mind when he saw the cookies and cream one. I got the apple cider flavored one. It was fantastic.
Some of the other things we saw while we were at the market.
The Wee One had fun when we were at one of the veggie vendors had beets and turnips. He told the Wee One to turnip the beet. The Wee One responded by picking up some of the beets and gently dropping them. He told the vendor “Drop the beet” in which the vendor laughed. Such a good memory.
After we were done at the market, we ran some errands. While we were at Walmart, we saw this Mickey and Minnie display.
A co-worker gave me the big pumpkin on Friday afternoon. Check out the size difference between Jeff and the Big Pumpkin.
