Pumpkin Patch

I took the girls to a pumpkin patch at Cal Poly last week to pick out our 4 pumpkins.  There were literally a couple thousand pumpkins spread out all over this huge field and all the way up the hill, too.  It was beautiful.
We had kind of a rough time while we were there because it was realllllly hot (mid-90's) and pretty miserable being out in the sun all that time, so we had a lot of tears from Avery.
But fortunately we had some smiles, too.  Sophie had a blast picking out pumpkins for each of us, and she made me walk all the way to the top of the hill to find them, of course.
Once Avery got over her tears she was content to just sit down in the dirt and get all dirty.
More tears, but this time it was Sophie who had just stepped on an ant hill and got attacked with bites, so I can't blame her at all.  This was also at the end and I even felt like crying by this point.  We left right after this picture.  But it was still a fun adventure, and we can't wait to carve our pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns!
