Harvest Hollow Pumpkin Patch

It's that time of year again!  The air is starting to cool {just slightly}, the leaves are starting to turn {well...maybe not quite this early in sunny CA}, and the pumpkin patches are open. 

If you remember, last year Bubs was not very enthusiastic about pumpkins.  In fact, he was too cool for pumpkins.

This year we decided to check out a new patch, Harvest Hollow Ranch.  It was a bit of a drive {45 minutes to be exact} but well worth it.  There were pumpkins everywhere...as far as the eye could see. 
 
Bubs actually fell asleep in the car on the way over so he was a bit groggy when we arrived.   Groggy Bubs = Timid Bubs.  Charlie = Comfort.
Once he woke up warmed up a bit, Mr. Man was all about the pumpkin.  He absolutely LOVES them now.  He pointed out each and every single one.
 He tried to roll them, pick them up, and carry them around.
 He ventured out into the patch with a cute little white pumpkin.
He loves that gorgeous gourd.
Yep...really loves pumpkins!
After looking at each and every single pumpkin {and boy were there a lot of pumpkins} we headed over to the corn maze.  The owners claim it takes over an hour to find your way through the ten acre maze.  We opted to take a few pictures instead.   
Notice Bubs has a gourd, not corn, with him.
He loved walking through the outside rows.
 He was quite the fearless explorer.
We ended up leaving with a large orange pumpkin, a medium size marina di chioggia {funky, grey, and bumpy}, a small white pumpkin, and Bubs' favorite little, white gooligan pumpkin.
All in all, it was a very successful trip to a pumpkin patch!  I just lurve fall!

  4. It's so much fun to see Noah having a farmer experience, checking the corn stalks and rolling pumpkins around, thumping them, making a selection. He looks so happy! Thanks for sharing your terrific photos. It's hard to choose a favorite. :-}
