Dad Tom (left) tells GSN: ‘To us, Halloween means family, tradition, and fun. We always pick pumpkins at our favorite local farm and enjoy corn mazes and kettle corn. Once we get home, everyone carves their own pumpkin with a little help from the Dads. We enjoy roasted pumpkin seeds and fresh apple cider to complete our preparations.’

Dad Louie (right) added: ‘Halloween, in our family, is a time when our boys get to be anybody that they want to be. Where we get to play and have make believe and let our imaginations run wild, regardless of what others might think.

‘I believe a lot of kids these days, with all the technological advancements, lose out on one of the most important aspects of growing up, their imagination.’
