jack-o-lantern blaze

Remember that creepy old Disney cartoon about the Headless Horseman? Well I recently found out we live about an hour away from Sleepy Hollow, NY where that story takes place! Every Halloween they have a huge jack-o-lantern blaze on the grounds of one of the many estates there. So Katie and I packed up the kids and headed off (get it) to the blaze. Since it was Katie's birthday we stopped for some Mexican food AND it was actually decent!! While waiting for it to get dark we ventured around the town to see some of the creepy sights, and to treat ourselves to some pumpkin pie ice cream. The blaze was AMAZING! There were so many pumpkins, each carved with incredible detail. I wish the pictures did our experience justice. I would urge each of you to join me next year- just fly out, no biggie! Landon loved our adventure and occasionally talks about Ichabod Crane like they're old friends.
