Pumpkin Patch 2013 + A Winner

One of my favorite things to do each Fall is take the kids to the Pumpkin Patch.
Last week, my younger sister and I took the kids to the Patch on a lovely weekday afternoon. It was one of the first days that it actually felt like Fall. We have had a really, really, warm October here in Nor Cal. The weather has been in the 80's all month. Finally, the day we went to the patch, it was 65 degrees. Love it.

How cute is my nephew, Jack?
Luke & Jack are such good buddies. 
Love these Brother-Cousins!
Luke loved chilling in the wagon:
This is Luke last year at the patch. Where has my baby gone?!?! Time, you suck.
Such a big boy now.
Obligatory  "How Tall this Fall" photos:
One of my favorite things to do is take pictures of pumpkins. 
Especially,  kids with pumpkins.
Pumpkins just make me happy.
I also love the mini pumpkins & gourds!
We ended our time at the patch doing the Corn Maze.
We tried to get a picture of all 4 kids for my mom. She just really wants a picture of all 4 of her grandkids. But everytime we try and take a picture, they turn out like this:
Sorry, Mom. We tried.
Even though going to the pumpkin patch can be a little bit hectic with little kids, I am always so glad we go. 
Our Fall isn't complete unless we go to the pumpkin patch. I have learned that the BEST time to go is on a weekday afternoon. There is NO ONE there. We had the patch to ourselves. The weekends are WAY too crazy busy. By the time we get there after school during the week, all the field trip kids are gone also. Love having the patch to ourselves!

Goodbye, Pumpkin Patch. See you next year!

    Oops ;)
