Congratulations to Susie for completing her first mission! Looking forward to seeing you at some group runs soon!

Once we all arrived we were shown how to prepare the pumpkins for carving. Cutting the top off and emptying them of their seeds and pulp. Now we were ready! After the children got their faces painted (lots of Batmans and witches) they came to the GoodGym pumpkin carving table to draw their designs for us. We followed their designs very careful making sure to perfectly capture the exact expressions of each of the pumpkins. Once they were done the children named their pumpkins and took them home to put on display.

After two hours of cutting and naming pumpkins we cleared up and had our group photo before Vicky came with pizzas for everyone! Yum yum!
