Keene Pumpkin Fest '11

This year was our second annual trip to the Keene Pumpkin Festival and it did not disappoint. Over 30,000 carved, lit pumpkins. This year we had our friend Devan visiting from CA to enjoy it with.

Penny loved looking at all the pumpkins, declaring "it's a PUMPKIN PARTY!"

These are our kitty faces...

We enjoyed a bag of kettle corn as big as Penny, among other delicious fair fare.
The 65 foot high pumpkin wall. It was magical and if we are still unfortunate enough to be living in Boston next year we'll definitely go again!

Wild Kittens

I hate titling blogs, and how much time blogging I spend trying to title my blogs. I don't blog frequently enough for the titles to be anything but "Lately", "What We've Been Up To", etc. so if I spend more than 30 seconds thinking about it I'm just going to put down the first thing that comes to mind.

In any case, here's what we've been up to lately. We got an i mac, which has been very exciting and I learn new amazing things about it every day. For example I just learned like 5 minutes ago that any pics I take on my i phone get automatically uploaded to i photo!! Amazing. This is the future.

Me and Penny went to the Museum of Science with Diane and Sophie. Penny was really excited to be inside the space shuttle since she has lately become obsessed with "blasting off".

We went to Gore Place and played with some chickens. Penny got to see the farmer gathering all the eggs from the coop and now refers to eggs as "chicken eggs". Like, "Penny what do you want for breakfast: oatmeal or eggs?" "Um, uh, chicken eggs." Which is another funny thing Penny does, whenever you ask her to make a choice she always contemplates with an "Um, uh..." Kids are cute.

The chicken event was fun until Penny got ATTACKED by a rooster. Seriously, imagine how frightening it would be if a 5 foot rooster ran at you and flapped its wings in your face and brandished its talons at you. Not fun. I was afraid she would hate chickens so I took a lot of time to explain to her that it was a BOY chicken, called a rooster, and that it attacked her because it was a boy. So now she'll just hate boys. I prefer that.

In other news, Chris Christie just endorsed Mitt Romney, yay! This is me and P at a Romney event in NH.
