punkin patchin it


This last family day, we visited the Underwood Family Farms pumpkin patch in Moorpark with Grandma Dell and Aunt Mary Ann. While the pumpkins were beautiful, they were hardly the draw for the kids. This place had so many attractions. In fact, we were sitting amidst a group of school kids who had traveled all the way from Beverly Hills to pick their pumpkins, so this must have been the ultimate in farm/pumpkin/petting zoo experiences.

It was a cold, muggy, gray day which reminded me so much of picking pumpkins in Snohomish, but it also felt like Fall to us . . . which was awesome.


Abby rode her first pony, and loved every second of it.

This was an adorable train for the kiddos. I rode in the car behind Zack to "spot" the little guy. The combination of the small track, facing backwards, going super fast, and being in the last car wreaked havoc on my tummy, but it was well worth the resounding applause Zack gave when the ride was over.

My favorite part of the day was the wagon ride. It took us through some beautiful farmland, and it was so cool to see Zack get excited about the "tac-to" (tractor).

Finally, the pumpkins…

  1. Abby looks so grown up! I love that you didn’t have tromp through the mud to get the pumpkins! We went today & got all muddy! XOXO miss you muches!

  2. Awwwww….thanks so much for sharing! You all look so adorable. I hope the price of the pumpkins was different than Snohomish…large ones @ Craven’s were $30 EACH!!! Ridiculous for sure! Miss you all so very much…been thinking about Thanksgiving lately and it makes me sad. Hugs to all of you.

  3. That was so much fun to enjoy with all of you! Abby was the pro and Zach’s expression throughout the day was priceless. Ben and Ally took us there with Jack last year and you’re right, Erin, there is TOO much to do! What a great setting and what a memorable day for the family. How much joy Adelle and Marianne must have had to be there with you! Enjoy! xo
