Pumpkin Patch

Though the weather here in Southern California still insists on being summer, fall activities are taking place nonetheless. This Saturday, Russ and I went to a pumpkin patch.

This is the 2nd time I've ever been to a pumpkin patch. The first time I went, Russ and I were still dating and he found out I'd never carved a pumpkin before. 

...Actually, now that I think about it, there was a first time before that first time. I was in sixth grade and my teacher told my classmates and I to bring some hay to class for a brick-building project. I remember telling my parents I needed hay so we went to the pumpkin patch where I stayed for a few minutes to pick up some hay from the ground that was thrown around for decoration. But I don't count that experience as a first time experience. That was purely an educational experience.

Anyways, back on subject. This pumpkin patch experience we looked at pumpkins, watched little kids pet baby goats, bought ice cream from an ice cream truck, and went through a dying corn maze. It was advertised as a "10-foot tall" corn maze but that must have been from a couple years ago. You can tell the California drought hit farms hard because the corn maze was lacking in, well, corn. It was kind of just a path through dead corn plants. But still fun and filled with lots of laughs with my man.
