Pumpkin Festival

Madre Dos is a docent at the Desert Botanical Gardens and invited us all, including my parents, to enjoy the yearly pumpkin festival there. I was happy to have somewhere to wear her fancy Halloween outfit. Priorities I know.

They have a hay ride to a special section where the action is.

Then you have to wander through a little hay bale maze.

J was happy to find Grammy

It opens up into a pumpkin patch with hundreds on pumpkins littered about and everyone under 12 gets to choose one to take home. 

Some were too big

Some made good seats even though the lighting made a magically-mommy-blogger-pumpkin-patch photo impossible. Or maybe it was part J not cooperating and trying to avoid all the other mommies with their cameras trying to do the same thing.

Some made great goggles.

And one was just right

Then they decorated them with foam stickers and markers

J's face is classic in this one

After that we swung by the petting zoo

It was almost a literal cow lick.

Of course we had to sit on the tractor too.
