LIFESTYLE: Halloween with the Bradley's

Better late than never!i had to share with you our first proper Halloween, it's the first year autumns understood it,shown an interest in it and actually got excited about it. 



She picked her own costume and insisted I dressed up too, She also picked out my Costume! Good think she has excellent taste. 


She decided on chase from paw patrol for herself and I was to be belle from beauty and the beast (thankfully I already had the perfect wig at home so it must have been fate).


I was super excited to be taking her trick or treating! We stayed and manned the front door armed with a huge pasta cooking pot of candy greeting more trick or treaters than I could count while waiting for Mr B to come home from work. 

When he arrived home autumn and I set off on special op mission candy. 

It was a total blast, these was so much neighbourhood spirit and so many households made a real effort (unlike our last neighbourhood where there wasn't a single trick or treater). 

We got lots of compliments on our costumes autumn looked super cute! We don't do scary blood everywhere costumes, I much prefer just good old dressing up. 

We returned home successful and triumphant from special op mission candy, and cannot wait for next year 

We loved the whole run up from picking pumpkins, carving, painting and decorating them ( Mr B did an excellent job carving chase from paw patrol, and I was especially proud of my Cinderella pumpkin) to dressing up and really enjoying our neighbourhoods community spirit. 

Love Aimee

LIFESTYLE: Pumpkin picking at Pickwell farm Southampton

www.dream1ncolour.com
Autumn has never been one of my favourite seasons, why you ask well you see it's getting darker and colder meaning morning are harder to wake up to even with a hyper pre schooler, I'm crap at layering clothing and still looking trendy! Asunder is just easier to dress for. 
It means winter is next and I hate being so cold and even more paying to have heat in my home. Finally the arrival of October means it's my birthday and I'm at the age where I'm quite old enough thank you.

But it's my daughters last autumn before starting school next year (don't like the sound of that either) and I want to make sure every day, moment and memory counts. So with the help of my best friend Laura we together are helping make memories with each other for our pre schoolers. 

We decided to go pumpkin picking (I've never done it) nor has Laura and Autumn and wyatt are older now so it's the perfect time.

So off we went Laura, wyatt, twins Luna & Zeke plus Autumn and I to Pickwell Farm Southampton

We got there around 11am and spent a good 3 hours whilst the older two ran and squealed with excitement.

 I was on twin and pushchair duty easier than trying to navigate my walking stick on the farm terrain.

I kept the twins content and entertained singing and being silly whilst miss muscle aka Laura was in wheelbarrow duty but this didn't stop Autumn and Watt giving it their best shot.

Autumn and wyatt were on the great pumpkin search. Together they worked like a well oiled bickering like brother and sister (figuratively speaking) team

There were so many to choose from and they loved it. The fresh air lots of girls to run through they had a blast. After the duo picking nearly 20 pumpkins (to decorate and split between us) we decided that was quite enough pumpkins plus Laura still had to wheel the back through the farm to the car.

we went for a wonder round and had some fun picking corn, raspberries and strawberries too.

By this time all were pretty tired pit so navigated back to the shop where the staff were so welcoming and we brought a few more fruits from the shop. 

The cost of the day is what you make it to be we spent around £45 on everything.  Including a weeks worth of fruit for each household

It was an exceptionally fun day and exceeded my expectations I'm glad we went on Monday as by Wednesday the 27th they had nearly sold out.

We will definitely be going back next year to kick off half term again, the kids LOVED it. And we got some amazing memories which you can't get by popping up the supermarket and grabbing a pumpkin from there, it's just not the same.

Have you done any fun Autumn activities you think we should try?
