Tanaka Farm Pumpkin Patch

Tanaka Farm Pumpkin Patch has been all over my news feed for the last month.  Everyone was going with their families and preschools!  I felt so guilty that we didn't get an opportunity to take the kids before Halloween, but then I saw on facebook that you could still go November first.  AND A WHOLE WHEELBARROW FULL OF PUMPKINS FOR $10!!!!  For an added bonus, Southern California acted like it was fall this morning.  We had a wonderful time; I think we may go every year on the day after Halloween!

Genevieve had a little audience while she did the hay maze! 






















Brandon may have had to move the wheelbarrow super slow so that pumpkins didn't fall out!

Irvine Regional Park Pumpkin Patch

Irvine Regional Park is like stepping out of Orange County and into the country somewhere.  This trip to the pumpkin patch was just me and Gigi and some friends!  



This is pretty much my favorite... she said, "Moooooo."

Lake Arrowhead

On Saturday morning I told Sterling we were going to drive to mountains where the leaves on the trees change colors.  His response, "What?! That's awesome!"  So we drove up the mountain to where my grandparents used to live.  We even sang, "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain."  We went on a little, "hike," visited grandma's house, had lunch on the lake, and played at the park.  The weather was peeerfect.  Just cold enough to feel like fall, but not too cold for our Southern California sandaled feet.  

{This was my grandparent's house when I was growing up.  So many wonderful memories live here}



{Gigi has learned to say, "cold."  And she's cold a lot.}






{I don't know if you can tell here, but Gigi didn't like being in the little fort}

Back to School!

It was a weird thing when my kids started school at Arroyo Vista 20 or so years after I graduated elementary school there.  Now, we're a whole month in and things are going great!  We're grateful to be a part of a great school with awesome teachers!
