Pumpkin festival

I love hanging out with Eric and the girls on Saturdays, lately I feel the need to get out of the house and do something different from my regular weekly routine. Yesterday we headed out to a pumpkin festival in Santa Paula, it was cute and the girls had fun. They had a train ride, hay wagon ride, face painting, petting zoo, hay pyramid, sunflower forest, yummy treats like pumpkin pie and of course lots and lots of pumpkins.
And after bumping poor Sara's head a million times we have finally upgraded to a minivan and to be honest, I am not sure how I got this far without it. Many of you I know would always take the SUV over the van but one of my favourite features - sliding doors. I'm a minivan driving mom and I love it! Now I just have to sell the Civic!!
And finally, this is a picture of the bakewell slices I made today. They were cooling when I reached into the cupboard above for something and out falls a spice jar of cumin that I hadn't put the lid on properly, and so it fell and dusted the bakewell slices with its contents. Yum, Yum!! Frustrated as I was maybe its a blessing as now I do not have to consume all of those needless calories!!

And what are bakewells? Is this a British thing, or have I missed something?
