Here in San Diego, October is typically very warm...and breezy with dry, hot 'Santa Ana' winds - which in turn is our fire season. However, somehow we decided to plan a weekend pumpkin patch visit with our friends, the Ritchison's, on a crisp cool afternoon...yay! It actually rained hours before we arrived, but cleared up and was a beautiful evening.
We started the short trip with a stop at Starbucks for a yum Pumpkin Spice Latte for us, and a mini hot chocolate for K - of course.
The kids were so excited to see each other...and to go on rides together. So we bought a bunch of tickets and let em at it. I was so proud of K for going UP and DOWN the big inflatable slide all by herself this year... such a feat!
Then before we left we picked out our pumpkins...and of course persuaded the kids to take some final pics together - love!
It's crazy to look back a few years when we all visited this same pumpkin patch together...they've grown so much! And I just love creating these fun family traditions...something Kapri will be able to fondly look back on when she thinks about her childhood. I guess that means so much to me, because I really don't have any memories of my childhood - I'm not sure why...I always just blame it on a bad memory. Anyway, I hope that doesn't happen to her...I hope she'll remember all these fun memories, and if not, at least we'll have the blog! haha
