What, what did you say? Oh, you want to see a photo dump of our day at the pumpkin patch?? 
Well, sure! Here you go! 

We hit all the stops at our 3rd annual trip to Adobe Farm Pumpkin Patch in Petaluma.  And 75 degrees in October?  Yep, we'll take it.  I flanneled us up anyway, mainly to get in the FALL mood, but no flannels were necessary.  Whatsoever.  Sorry Jack Stone.  

Lucca wanted to be a kitty to go to the patch, because that's what she remembers doing last year.  So we pulled out last year's shirt, put some ears, a tail and make-up on and BAM!  A kitty!   Again!

Lucca looking way too old

Jackson trying to pick up pumpkins was a pretty rad sight

I love those bright orange ones top left, but Rustin told me they look like giant tomatoes

Notice the grapevines.  I love living near wine country.  Even vines at the pumpkin patch...

This, THIS is the Pumpkin Fairy Godmother.  She is CRAZAY

To get the pumpkin wand, she makes the kids close their eyes and envision their wish.  
And the mom's too.  She is cray.

The petting zoo.  Big hit.

The maze.  Lucca got a lot taller and now she can cheat and peek over...

But this guy, he was confused and it was awesome

My boys

Time to clean the camera lens :)

Me and my babies on the hay ride.  It was a good day.

This is the best pumpkin patch in the Bay Area.  If you are in the North Bay especially, highly recommend.   They have an adorable antiques shop, tons of food and coffee and a haunted house if you are patching it without babies :)


Disneyland or Bust 2012.

We had the best time with my sister and her kids and BOTH sets of grandparents.  My sister and mom did most of the planning for the trip and we basically just had to show up and have fun.  We are good at that.  It was lovely.  We spent two full days doing Disney + California Adventure and then one fabulous day lounging by the pool at the house we rented in the Anaheim Hills.  It was perfect.

*Disclaimer:  Wouldn't ya just know that my camera DIED the morning of the first day at Disneyland??? And better? My sister's camera died not even 5 minutes later. And did either of us bring our battery chargers? Of course not. #momFAILx2

Thank goodness for the trusty iPhone that captured images beyond the few I have here.  But here are some Disney photo gems nonetheless.  

The girls, not having a clue what to expect before we walked in to the Disneyland gates... 

First stop: Breakfast with Minnie!!!

Is this for real?

Yes, yes this is real. 

Kisses for Minnie, while Lucca tries to figure out if she's indeed real.

More loving.

First ride: the rockets!  Loving Lucca's face here.

Less than impressed Stone

The Jungle Cruise.  Everyone's favorite Disneyland ride, right?  RIGHT???


And the last shot before the camera died.  This is one lucky little girl.

Same time, same place next year, ok everyone???

The things she says

"Daddy, when you turn 37, I'm gonna say 'OH MY GOODNESS!!!'"

Me too, babe. Me too.
