Magnificent Pumpkins


Now that I'm almost recovered, we finally made it to the pumpkin patch Sunday. We haven't been since we lived here in California 8 years ago. Sure we had pumpkins in Texas but we never seemed to make it a day to go find a pumpkin patch. Here in Santa Cruz you head North on Hwy 1 along the beautiful coast and there are quite a few amazing patches to visit, this year we decided to go to the grand daddy of them all Aratas just south of Half Moon Bay check it out at http://www.aratapumpkinfarm.com The Hay maze was a good hour of fun and finally of all people my mom led us out. We were saying things like " I HAYt this maze" hahaha " we are on survivor Hay maze" "they should sell apple cider in the maze, I'm thirsty" There was a lot to do & see, the metal sculptures were amazing. The kids are in 6th & 7th now and you just never know when your last trip to the patch will be that they want to go and you still have fun ya know? They picked out some amazing shiny slick pumpkins in aqua & peach colors they are really gorgeous( I would love to glitter them), it was a day I will never forget I was so thankful to have the strength to do the maze and enjoy my family.


Also I have listed a few more goodies up on eBay tonight I will be adding some more tomorrow night or Thursday, so be sure to check back!
