Pumpkin 'Patch' 09

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch this weekend! I thought we would pick up our pumpkins when Josie's class visited a local mini-farm - but that event got rained out. That field trip is rescheduled for this coming Friday. That would leave us with just one day to carve all our pumpkins...not enough time!

I have to admit that it was a bit odd picking out our pumpkins while it was 82 degrees outside. We're used to bundling up with hats & coats for a hayride out to the pumpkin field, then pulling our pumpkins off the vine. It's different here, but we still managed to have some fun. Maddie wasn't with us so Josie picked out her pumpkin. (She's a very thoughtful little sister!)

On Saturday we set out to do a bit of local exploring. We followed the Ortega Highway through Cleveland National Park and ended up at Lake Elsinor. Lots of twists and turns on the highway - so James had a great time driving. I, on the other hand, spent most of the trip grasping the arm rest and covering my eyes! I am SUCH a bad passenger!

Should be a fun week coming up. We plan on carving one pumpkin each night, starting tonight. Hope all of your Halloween preparations are fun!
