28 Oct The kid and I at Underwood Farms for Halloween
I actually forgot what day Halloween was. The day, not the date, stupids. I’m sort of over it this year. I say that every year but somehow I find myself dressed up in a half-ass costume out on the streets of West Hollywood doing god knows what.
Not this year. This is a family Halloween for me and I’ll just watch others celebrate. My celebration happened last weekend when I took the kid to Underwood Farms. If you have a kid, or are a kid, or act like a kid, you have to get your ass up there. I had no idea that a place like that existed here in L.A.
There are giant pigs (definitely don’t exist in L.A.), a corn maze (my favorite), pig races (River’s favorite), tractors, more kids, pumpkins, games, playgrounds, the list is endless. River had a friggin’ blast. Face painted like Spiderman and a badass attitude to go with it. True happiness.
Dodging his classmates from his school, we got the most of that place. At least as much as I could handle in a five-hour period. He would have followed this one kid around all day and then I would have missed out on all the crap I wanted to do! Wink, wink. It’s an hour outside of L.A. and somehow there was traffic on the 405 on the way home on a Sunday. Surprising, huh?
Here are some memories instead of a play-by-play because in all honesty, it was a madhouse, and I might have blacked out. Thank god for my phone. 😉
Wait, I just remembered, there are pumpkins in the trunk of the car that we still have to carve and trick or treating to do on Wednesday! Wow, how life has changed.
