Pumpkin Patch

In Orange County, it seems like everywhere you turn there is a pumpkin patch full of carnival rides and a petting zoo. This one is the same but for some reason less crowded and full of just really cool people. And, being Ben’s very FIRST Halloween and visit to a pumpkin patch, we knew this was the place to spend time taking pictures and having fun on a Saturday afternoon.

The kids got their faces painted (a dragon, a fairy, and Minnie Mouse). Ben got to sit in a pile of pumpkins. We laughed and watched the kiddies run through the corn maze. Holidays are always so much better surrounded by kids…even sweaty ones with glittery paint running down their faces. ;)

Pumpkin Time

Over the past few years, we have gone to the same pumpkin patch. It’s pretty cool. Great pumpkins to choose from. Rides. Games. Petting zoo. I wish it wasn’t in a mall parking lot but once you’re inside of this place, you forget about the Macy’s glowing, red sign in the background. B loves it and we always seem to have a good time too. In the next few weeks, we hope to go to a more traditional pumpkin patch with hay rides and pumpkins on vines. I need to bring the good camera to that adventure.

Definitely my favorite time of year…
