Pumpkin Patch

Paul made a comment tonight, something to the effect of, "we can't ever let our kids get married." And I responded with, "or move out, or go to school, or date, or grow up." We are having so much fun with these two at these ages. There's nothing better!

We took them to the Irvine Park Railroad pumpkin patch over the weekend. And it was more fun than we could have imagined. Starting traditions young, and continuing them is something that I get so excited about. And a pumpkin patch before Halloween will be something we will do for years to come. No grocery store pumpkins for us! We prefer paying twice as much in a fun environment. ;) 

We went on a hayride. 

We saw farm animals.
Rode pretend horses.

Went in a haunted house.
Played in the pumpkins.

And we searched for the perfect ones to take home with us. 
We ended the day with cotton candy. I think this may have been Addie's first time trying cotton candy. She wasn't so sure about it. But Garrett and I love it! 
The weather was perfect. The kids were in heaven. And we left with cute pumpkins and happy kids. Success!

Atticus just tried cotton candy for the first time a few weeks ago too. It took like 5 minutes to get him to even try a bit. :D

Man, the pumpkin patches in California are so far superior to Utah's it's not even funny.
