the pumpkin patch
jen and i drove to orange county today and took the kids to a pumpkin patch. it was one of those large pumpkin patch places that have bounce houses and a few other rides for the kids to play on. i have never gone to one before mostly because they are really expensive. we bought our tickets for this one through plum district and got a great deal. the kids could go on five rides and pick a pumpkin for $12.00. it was a really good price. i love these groupon type deals.
the place was pretty empty and the kids had a blast going on the different inflatable obstacle courses and riding the tractors. after they were done with the rides they got to pick out a pumpkin. it was so cute to see them inspect each one. mason was trying to find the square pumpkin like in the book "spookly the square pumpkin" we have been reading at night. in the end he had to settle for a round pumpkin. he is so excited to carve it.
