Happy Fall! and nothing says fall more than pumpkin patches and running through hay mazes.
it’s no secret that we love the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch. i post about it every year…and while trying to put together this post, i found that we had been to this favorite Orange County Pumpkin Patch over 10 times just last year. i had over 330 photos to choose from…thus all the different outfits we are wearing the pictures below. ahh, the memories…it’s so much fun to visit pumpkin patches in the fall.
well, we are happy to announce that the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch is NOW OPEN! (make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for the chance to win tickets.)
what i love about the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch is that no matter how many time you go during the season, no two times are the same. there is so many different activities to do, that each time you go, you can do something different. but, we ALWAYS ride the train. it has always been a favorite of my boys…especially when they were the ages 1-5 years old.
and we ALWAYS get measured on the giant pumpkin patch ruler. it is so fun to see how the kids have grown each year.
you can visit the (semi-spooky) Haunted House….
or take a hayride around the park. this is one of my favorite things to do.
the boys like to decorate Halloween cookies at the cookie booth. they like lots of frosting and lots of sprinkles.
you can guess the weight of a giant pumpkin. we have guessed every year…but haven’t been right yet.
there are also other things to do at the Pumpkin Patch such at the bouncey house, mini John Deere Tractor rides and pony rides, but i just couldn’t show everything LOL. and we usually run amongst the pumpkins. there are many different varieties around the patch.
we picked out this pumpkin last year.
and before we leave, we sometimes get treats from the concession tent like our favorite cotton candy. yum!
