The Jet-Set Family’s favorite holiday is Halloween. Well, that’s of course until Christmas rolls around. I’m not sure what it is. The childhood memories, the weather, the comfortable clothes, the costumes, decorations or treats, but the combination makes every October feel like one big glowing jack-o-lantern with a bow. Over the weekend The Jet-Set Family headed to West Hollywood to spend some QFT (quality family time) at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch and Market.
Jet-Set Tot had a lovely time, and so did myself and Jet-Set Dad. It was not over-crowded and there was plenty for JST to do. She particularly loved the Hay Maze and would have played in there for hours if I had let her! I personally enjoyed the Pumpkin Carving station. These artists were talented. To watch their talents come alive with a knife on a pumpkin canvas was fascinating!
Jet-Set Dad loved the old-fashion type snow cones, the over-the-top decorations and the people watching.
OK, so what if our pumpkin patch has a designated area for the paparazzi? No, it really does. The paps have their own section where they can perch themselves on hay stacks so that their pesky TMZ lenses do not get in the way of family time for the Klum, Stefani/Rossdale and Alba/Warren families, et al. I mean, c’mon… Suri needs to pick a pumpkin in peace people!
This might be a turn-off to some; however a.) if you’ve ever tried to navigate a car, let alone your family around a flock of rabid paparazzi stalking a star, you would totally appreciate this little press stable, and b.) because of the amount of press coverage, the patch is kept clean, organized and the attractions are fun for everyone!
