This is a great time of the year. The temperatures are cooler, there are many wonderful ways to celebrate life and of course, reasons to wear costumes. My boys love Halloween. They love dressing up, pumpkin carving, and they love wearing costumes. We went back to the pumpkin patch this fall to enjoy the sunshine and bouncing and sliding and the wagon rides.
I think that if I didn’t have my own kids that I would have continued skipping holidays and the joy that they bring people. I have been consumed with climbing for so long that holiday just means more time to climb. I never got into the festivities that the rest of the population thrives upon. My boys have allowed me to see what happiness holidays can bring and that fun is slowly creeping into my crusty ole brain. Thanks to my wonderful wife for teaming up with me for making and raising these incredible boys.
