Pumpkin Patch

We took Jay to the pumpkin patch this past weekend. It was the first trip ever to a pumpkin patch. Jay has been talking nonstop about pumpkins ever since they started showing up at the grocery stores earlier this month. We googled and found an Organic Pumpkin farm in the San Pasqual area. I was hoping to find a patch with a hayride, but this one was still nice.

Here are the boys as they set off on the pumpkin patch adventure.

It took Jay a long time to find the right one. I think we looked at every pumpkin in the whole field. He wanted to find a "baby pumpkin", and a "mama Dadapapa pumpkin". He is so funny. He also said "heavy pumpkin" for the first time! We are so excited that he is finally starting to talk!

When we were paying for the pumpkins Jadon noticed some "blue corn", and really wanted it. He was very excited to have corn, that he is sure is from his Aunt Cat's farm. We've had to hid that piece of corn because he was determined to eat it! We were hoping to go to another pumpkin patch again before Halloween, but with all the fires out here, I'm not sure if that will happen or not. (We had to leave early after Xian got something in his eye, and Jay was freaking out over dirt getting in his shoes) I really wanted a nice hot cup of apple cider, but it was so hot outside, we decided to get iced coffee at starbucks instead.
