pumpkin patch.

This weekend we adventured to a pumpkin patch. Original, huh? I bet you did, too.

We braved the traffic into Half Moon Bay, passing the gimmicky, bouncy house littered patches and smiled contentedly as we pulled into a no-frills field filled with pumpkins. The name matching its simplicity: Bob's. Meredith ran about, throwing pumpkins to and fro when she could sneak it. We snapped photos. I fed the baby. We appreciated the cool breeze and ocean view. We got 5 pumpkins for ten dollars.

To me, there's not much on this world as magical as New England in the fall. And while this was certainly no match for a drive out Route 2, ending at an apple orchard with cider donuts, it was good. I was with my family and California has plenty of its own beauty to offer.

that photo of you and Meredith is so great, as is the one of your two babies in the wheelbarrow. I was just in New England for a wedding and I tend to agree, fall there is really beautiful. but California isn't too bad either ;)

So much fun! I love the photo of the babies in the wheelbarrow! They're so precious. And, if it makes you feel better, I did NOT go to the pumpkin patch this weekend ;)

Cute! Precious wheelbarrow pics. :) The change to "Fall" here is not as apparent here as in other parts of the country. While I'm happy about the smaller range of temperatures here, one thing I'm bummed about is that we don't really have different seasons. I'm seeing all these pumpkin patch pics and I can't wait to go next week with our MOPS group!

Adorable family of 4 shot :) What a fun time! I couldn't quite understand my friend (with a newborn only) taking baby to the pumpkin patch. While I know Meredith was able to enjoy it at her age, I see it brings just as much joy to parents as the baby in tow. The pictures are worth it in themselves ;)
