Pumpkin Patch

We went to Bates Nut Farm out in Valley Center this weekend to get the requisite "adorable kids unnaturally posed in a field of pumpkins" shots for the season (along with seemingly everyone on my Facebook feed!)
Bates is a really neat place with fields of pumpkins actually growing in the ground and TONS of great photo ops with wheelbarrows, cornstalks, hay bales and of course, pumpkins (but no nuts?? Hmm...) They also have lots of activities for kids such as pony rides, inflatables, face painting, hay rides, a hay bale maze and a petting corral.
Last year, I was newly pregnant with Harper and I remember not feeling that great and it being super hot but Avery enjoyed climbing all around the pumpkins and we let her ride the pony.

This year, we met up with our pals the Filipovitchs. Their little boy Connor is Avery's BFF (along with Aubrie, who was there for a little bit) and Megan and I feel like we have been friends for years though it has only been a year since we have known them. We had a great time posing the kids and taking a hay ride and letting the kids jump in the bounce house. It was not nearly as hot this year though just as crowded.



Every year these traditions get more fun as Avery grows, and next year we look forward to chasing 2 kids running around the fields of pumpkins.
