No Carve Pumpkin Contest

My son started Pre-K in August and his school is having a no-carve pumpkin contest tomorrow. Here are some ideas we are considering. I’m not very creative so we have been looking on Pinterest for ideas.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

During our visit to Amarillo, we had the opportunity to Visit Palo Duro State Park! It is so beautiful I would love to visit again, the park is so big I know we didn’t get a chance to see everything. We only had a few hours to visit but if we ever go back I would love to rent a cabin for a few nights, and maybe try to hike a trail.  You can explore the canyon by foot, mountain bike, horse or car. They have more than 30 miles of hiking, biking, and trails.


They have several beautiful campsites with water and electricity to choose from, primitive drive-up sites, equestrian sites, or backpack camping areas.  You can stay in one of three cabins on the canyon’s rim or four limited service cabins on the canyon floor. They just built  a pavilion you can also rent for a wedding, reunion or meeting


They also offer a musical drama called TEXAS, it runs Tuesdays through Sundays in the summer at the Pioneer Amphitheater in the park. Watch the stories, struggles, and triumphs of early settlers. The family-friendly show has singing, dancing, fireworks and lots of Texas humor!
