25/Oct/2011: Creat a Jack-O-Lantern for the experience!


It's time of Halloween.
My daughter and I were looking forward to have any experiences of this event as it isn't traditional habbit in Japan.
So an idea comes up us when we watched the TV at our room is making a Jack-O-Leantern.
They showed how to make it and it was very interesting because we don't have such a big pumpkin in Japan!
Probabry today we have nothing plan so it's good to do something. We bought two pumpkins at Smith's market yesterday.
Unfortunately we couldn't buy a big one because can't carry them from the morket.

This morning a guy who is staying at the same hostel asked us cook breakfast for us at the kitchen.
Wow,that's something fun as we always want to do local experiences. Of course we join cook breakfast and enjoyed some conversastions.
We talked about try to make a Jack-O-Lantern in this afternoon and he quickly said "OK,I'm join you then!".


That's nice as we are just two girls and we just saw how to make it on TV one time. Never tried before.
At afternoon,
He seems like went to buy a pumpkin for himself was bigest one!! We started make each Jack-O-lantern at the kitchen.
Sometimes other guests coming to see it. It was very nice for my daughter I guessed.
This was my second time to stay at hostel. It very good to have communication with othere travelers and it's a wonderful for my daughter!
She also said that "I won't to go to hotel anymore"...!

Finally we creat own Jack-o-Lantern. It takes about 2-3 hours. The skin of pumpkin was too hard.
Also it difficult to carve as I designed first. Especially details. I regret to make design of mouth with too much curve.
We put three Jack-O-Lantern at the kitchen...is so pretty!! Haha,you know the stuff you created is always lovely for creator.

After that,we went to walking a bit close to the hostel together.
The man, left us after hill down because he wants looking for an apartment to start his life in SLC.
My daughter and I went to the memory grove near the Utah State Capital.
It was very beautiful place and I saw some people coming taking photographies for their wedding photos,and family's photos.
The leave becoming red and yellow,and any other colors as it late autumn season. It was really beautiful veiwing.


We back to the hostel's kitchen as talked about to have dinner together with the man,Michael.
At that time,something good guitar sounds coming from the Kitchen. It was playing Michael. I love to listen guitar's sounds.
He offered to me that he's playing guitar during I'm cooking for dinner...
Oh well it also will be nice memory so I start cooking in the beautiful sounds of guitar.
