Annika Goes to the Pumpkin Patch

Annika told us she had never been to a pumpkin patch before and we thought this to be a travesty. So we loaded up the car and went south down to Half Moon Bay for the annual pumpkin festival. We found parking at a local school for $5... who am I not to support schools? So, we gladly paid the 5 spot and went downtown to see all the goings on. We had some food, looked around, changed a diaper, but got board and headed over to our favorite pumpkin patch.
We like Farmer John's Pumpkin Farm because there's the best selection of pumpkins and much more.
They provide little red wagons or wheel barrows for you to cruise around and pick your pumpkin, gourd, brussle spouts on the... vine?
They have a Tee Pee for the kids to play in... or maybe to remind us of how we decimated the indigenous peoples and stole their land.

The different types of pumpkins are fun to go through and make for excellent pictures... Cassandra took all these pictures... she sure has a good eye for this type of thing.
Bumble bee on a sunflower.... cool.

I kept thinking, I wonder if Annika would fit into a pumpkin? This is probably the only year I could ever hollow out a pumpkin and put her in it.... if you saw what this pumpkin looked like on the inside you'd think I was crazy to put her in it.
After a while we snagged a pumpkin and headed home.
