Pumpkin love

We have pumpkin fever at our house!

The kids and I have been pumpkin patch "hopping" (sort of like bar hopping, but not) for the past week. Last Tuesday, we took a trip to our local pumpkin patch and had a great time! My little man is picking up sooo many new words and his two current favorite, fall-related words are "ske-cwhoa" (scarecrow) and "punkin."

My preschooler has had a great time exploring the different shapes and sizes of pumpkins, leaves, walnuts and other natural things on our pumpkin patch adventures.

On Saturday, we went to an apple/pumpkin farm called Abel's Apple Acres in Apple Hill (outside of Placerville, CA). We had an absolute blast with the pony rides, photo opportunities, apple goodies, etc. If you live anywhere in Northern California, go there and have a great time! I would highly recommend taking a trip during the week because the traffic and crowds can be unbelievable!
