Pumpkins Anyone?

Hurry!! Must get pumpkin pictures on the blog before the end of October! (Phew. I made it.)

This year we decide to keep it real and go to an actual pumpkin patch. We drove to Oak Glen, an area of California famous for its apple orchards (we were too late to pick apples - that happens in September - maybe next year!), for a day in the country. Debbie and Andy piled in to the van with us and we were off to enjoy some scenery and fresh air. Our day's activities included a corn maze, picking pumpkins straight off the vine, visiting a petting zoo, and drinking apple cider. It was a fun way to celebrate Fall.

Cooking a little pumpkin in the oven!

A little late, but still heartfelt: Happy Birthday Dad! Our little family loves you very much!

The picture of you with the tiny pumpkin is super cute.

(Don't you ever change your kids' clothes?? They're wearing the same shirts as in the first day of school post! Ha!)

We're minimalists, Amy. :)

Ok, I already posted all over the pictures on FB already, but I got to agree with Amy. Those boys are growing up WAY too quick! If they have girlfriends by the next time I see them I'm gonna be SO MAD!

Pumpkin Patch is always SO much Fun! If that little pumpkin in your "oven" is as cute as the 2 brothers, you are going to be very busy! -- And having lots of fun!! Love, A. Dianne
