We went to the pumpkin patch at Avila Valley Barn on Saturday after Riley's soccer game. I love that place and look forward to going there every year! But, it was a zoo, as to be expected on a Saturday before Halloween.
We took the kids on a hayride down to the actual patch o' pumpkins. Ryan found a great pumpkin and Riley and Bella found apples from the nearby apple orchard. Yum yum. The kids went through the haybale maze, saw the animals and we all wandered around the gift shop with Nona looking for goodies. We came home with a delicious looking apple crisp and some pomegranite jelly.
The poor kids were subjected to me taking a million photos of them with pumpkins. How original, I know. But the thing is, we have gone every year since Riley was born. In fact, he was only a week old the first time we took him. It is a tradition that I am bound and determined to uphold. Good thing is, doesn't seem that anyone minds!
Here is my layout (you had to have known that was coming) from the day:
