Pumpkin Patch

Okay, so most of the "pumpkin patches" around here are in parking lots where some hay is layed down, pumpkins brought in and inflatable slides and bouncy structures are set up. Really fun but I wanted an authentic pumpkin patch experience so I found a pumpkin patch online and decided we should all go out there on Saturday. Now, mind you it is an hour drive and we get there and ALLLLLLL of San Diego must have also wanted the authentic experience because it was absolutely packed. We took the tractor hayride which Tyler loved but the lines for everything were super long so we just walked around. We went in the shop and tried a homemade truffle, looked at the geese and then picked pumpkins. Turns out, the only ones to pick are the Big Macs which we didn't need a super big one and the rest were already picked in piles in the field. Oh well, it was a great family day and we enjoyed ourselves!

The orange reminds him of the Beavers. Go Beavs!
