Pumpkin Patch 2011

It's pumpkin time! Kapri was soooo excited to go to the pumpkin patch this year...well, she actually knew what it was this year, haha. She'd see a smaller one on the way to/from preschool, but I kept telling her we'd be going to a different one that was a little bigger, with more rides. So she was anxious everyday!

Finally we went on Friday after work, which I think was an amazing idea, because most people we're probably still sitting in icky rush hour traffic (I'm off by 3) - so the place was nearly empty when we arrived! We took a quick family pic, bought some ride tickets & were on our way.

The place we go to is called the Pumpkin Station - the Del Mar location. We discovered it last year and I'm hooked. 2 years ago when Kapri was just 5 months old, we went to Bates Nut Farm - but that place was a. too crowded, b. far, c. had longest line to get into parking, and d. was about 100 degrees. No thanks.

We did the typical rides as last year - the train she was able to do by herself this time, yay big girl! Dad still took her on the carousel, and she also went down a big inflatable slide by herself after some coaching from us below! She loves the petting area...this time we went with Auntie Sisi, who actually caught & held a chicken to let K pet it - so crazy!
Then Sisi took Kapri on the spinning cups - O...M...G....the most hilarious thing to watch. ever. Kapri kept putting her head back and making a funny/dizzy face...and the faster Sisi would spin the wheel, the faster it spun, and K just had a huge grin on her face.
Finally we picked out a few pumpkins & were on our way - love the pumpkin patch!
