WE HEART PUMPKIN PATCHES!!!

WARNING: You are about to view a gazillion Pumpkin Patch Pics!!....Sorry, I couldn't choose just one.


We love the fall becuz it brings with it all the great holidays and cool weather!! But we especially love exploring new Pumkin Patches every year and picking out the perfect pumkins to adorn our front porch! So this year we went out to Valley Center to visit Bates Nut Farm! It was amazing and so beautiful, they had hundreds of very large and small pumkins to choose from...



We could not get over how huge these pumkins were...The pictures don't really do it justice, but these suckers were almost all over 100 pounds!!



We let them run through the straw maze where they kinda "lost" for a bit...heehee, so we were able to sit down and take a break!! Maybe I could have Kristian make one of these in our backyard, so I can send them out back every once in awhile!! hahaMe and my handsome "scarecrow" just chillin' in the hay...


Daddy taking them for a wheel barrel ride as we go to the patches to pick our pumpkins...

They each ran and sat on the pumkins they wanted to bring home....too bad they were about $100 each....sorry guys.So then they decided to settle for these...


But actually by the end of the day we let them pick out those small pumkins, so that mommy could get her favorite "Fairytale" and "White Princess" pumpkins...I mean, I am "The Queen Bee" around here...So what are you gonna do??
