Pumpkin Patch

Last saturday, we went to the Pumpkin Festival at Cal Poly Pomona. Katie came to California for the week, and this was the only time we got to get together. It kinda was a bummer too because parking was ridiculous and it was super hot and way crowded. So we ended up going our seperate ways, and we didn't get to hang out anymore. It was great seeing her and Tyler for a little bit though. Hopefully we will get to see them again soon.

The Pumpkin Patch
Tyler trying to lift a pumpkin.

He actually got one off the ground!

Ethan trying too, but he was more interested in watching what Tyler was doing.

The toddler stand off. It was cute, they just kept staring at each other and didn't quite know what to do. Haha!

Ethan on a big pile of pumpkins. This one came out super cute, I think.

This one too, if he hadn't blinked!

Katie and Tyler

Katie took this picture of us. A rare moment of all of us together in a picture. Thanks Katie!

Ethan next to the biggest pumpkins I have ever seen in my life. They were $65.00 each!
Ethan checking out a spider.

Holding an Ironclad Beetle. They were really good at playing dead.

I just like this picture. Ethan was looking at all the bug stuff. There was an insect fair going on at the same time, so he got to see lots of bugs. Most of them were dead and framed though.

My bug boy!

He got brave and actually touched on of the tarantulas. We were so proud of him. I wouldn't touch it so a round of applause for Ethan!

This is a small world. On our way out, we ran into the Badgers, another couple from church, who recently moved to the San Diego area. They have a little girl who is 3 months younger than Ethan. We was nice chatting for the 5 minute walk it took to get to the parking lot. This picture is of Brooklyn and one of her cousins riding in a wagon. She looked so cute in her pigtails!

Originally we were going to meet up with Sara and the girls at the patch also, but they didn't get there until we were leaving. So we gave Sara the camera and she took these pictures of the girls. I really like this one of Brooke, and you can see Lily in the background all blurry. Super cute Sara!

They found the jumbo pumpkins too. Too cute Brookie!

Lily showing off some little squash.

Cute cousins!

Brooke sitting with the pumpkins. She had just woken up from a nap.

We had fun, but I don't know if we will go again next year. It was way too crowded and that's partly because it was only open for one weekend. Maybe another time, or another patch.
Happy Halloween everyone!
