Last weekend, we took a little road trip. The weather was wild. First snow of the season.
The purpose of the trip was two-fold. One, to visit a flea market right outside of Prague (a little birthday excursion, and man, was it fun), and two, to visit a pumpkin farm.
Again, not the fall day I was envisioning, but a fun trip none the less.
We dug through the big bins of pumpkins to find the real beauties. It was awesome to find a place with BIG pumpkins as the only ones we had seen in Prague were tiny tiny.
Though we did bring home one tiny one to put by our kitty's bed :)
The reason for all this pumpkin madness?
We threw a party last night! A pumpkin carving Halloween party!
We invited our friends from the class we took together last semester and from the one I am in now. Both teachers even came. It was the first time carving pumpkins for pretty much everyone and they were all very excited to try this American tradition :) Clay even made a little video presentation highlighting the ins and outs of pumpkin carving.
They loved it.
Except the gross pumpkin insides. We told them that was part of the experience :)
It was a really fun night of connecting with our friends.
We have spent dozens of hours together, but not many of them outside of the classroom, so it was fun to relax and have some fun together.
And the fun continued this morning at school where the party food and drinks were finished off happily :)
So much fun!
Thankful to be here and to spend time with new friends!
