Mom took Olivia on her first Halloween shopping trip last week. It was a dreary day, so some pumpkins and fun decorations brightened up the mood. Pumpkins are new to Olivia, and at Pahl’s Market, they have a bizillion of them in all shapes and sizes.
After looking at some big pumpkins outside, Olivia found a bin of tiny ones inside. I think they must have smelled extra nice because she was really into sniffing them.
Not only do they have pumpkins, they have a lot of gourds. Mom says these ones are super weird and ugly, but Olivia found them to be quite interesting.
Besides fun stuff, they stumbled across a skeleton. Little Olivia was positively fearless and went right up to sniff the guy! She is so very brave for a puppy!
The one greenhouse has table after table of pumpkins in it. The tables don’t seem real sturdy, so Olivia was not allowed to put her paws on them to sniff.
Outside they have a giant pumpkin bouncy house for kids. I don’t think it would work well for dogs, but it does make for a nice photo.
Many of the fun decorations are outside too, like ceramic pumpkins. These ones are spooky with the cat faces on them. The giant mums behind Olivia sure look beautiful.
The favorite item of the day is this silly witch with a pumpkin. Isn’t she cute? Every year Mom takes one of us to Pahl’s to look around. Olivia said her first Halloween shopping trip was interesting, but she still doesn’t seem to grasp the whole Halloween concept.
