pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins
October = autumn leaves, cooler weather, lots of orange and pumpkins everywhere! So why not spend the second weekend of the month at a pumpkin patch with hundreds of other people who are just as excited about the season as you are!
We’re lucky to have some pretty great pumpkin patches in our area… like this one, Dave’s Pumpkin Patch, right down the street or Cool Patch Pumpkins (home of the world’s largest Corn Maze) just down the freeway and Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm up in Wheatland. We didn’t take Miss L last year to any pumpkin patches, since wasn’t really mobile and ready for time in the sun… but we’re happy to have waited to have all the fun she gets to have this year!
“MAMA! Don’t leave me here all alone in the perfect photo-op position! ALL DONE ALL DONE!!!”
And look who just happened to be at the pumpkin patch on Saturday? CARS!!! We didn’t spend 1/2 our day waiting in line for the front-facing photo-op… but instead just admired them from the backside! (Did you know they’re actual remote-controlled vehicles! How cool is that!)
… and this was our final pumpkin load… not too shabby at all!
I love that pumpkin with the pimples and warts. :) We are going to Cool Patch in the morning to pick up our three pumpkins: Small, medium and large. One for each of us. Love that Miss L was completely over it for the staged photo. She looks adorable in her demin outfit.
Yessss! Warty pumpkins are my favorite! :)
Ok I know we’re talking about pumpkins here but I can’t help but say what a cute little girl! I guess she wasn’t too happy sitting beside that pumpkin over there.lol Anyway, we have never been to a Pumpkin Patch before. It looks really fun. I’m sure my kids would love to see Mr. Piggy over there as well! For now the closes thing we have to a Pumpkin Patch is the Pumpkin Cheesecake that I’ve been craving for. Thanks for sharing :)
So glad to know there are real pumpkin patches this way! I always get a little sad for the parking lot patches because I used to go to a real pumpkin patch. There’s something about cutting the pumpkin from the actual vine that can’t be had in a parking lot.
