|"I'll have this one, Mom!"|
|"I'm pretty sure I could drive this thing, if they let me."|
Little did I know that while I was spending all that time fantasizing about this awesome day, that it really would turn out to be the most perfect day ever :) It was the first major event that BAH was here to enjoy with us, so I was an especially thankful wife and momma! Baby H was obsessed with this antique tractor. It won out over goats, hay, tractor ride, and pumpkins.
|This goat was an especially good sport. The other 4 ran to the far side of the fence with the chicken.|
It was a hot day, and we got there late morning, which ended up being perfect timing because it was not crowded. What is it about goats that is so adorable? I hope I have some one day. Goats and maybe a few chickens, alpacas, dogs, and a koi pond. Farm fantasy :)
|"Don't you have any carrots?"|
Sorry, buddy. We didn't see the carrots to feed you until we were on our way out :(
We got on the hay wagon with a couple of other super cute little families, but there was this one lady who kept yelling at her kids (seriously) because they wouldn't pose correctly for her. She had a fancy camera and the CUTEST little baby in a Bjorn on her chest. I felt bad for the kids and for her. She clearly missed the point of the pumpkin patch and should have stayed home with her beloved camera and had a mimosa.

I learned from the farmer that the City of San Diego owns and leases out all of this farm land as a "Farm Preserve". I had no idea and never worked in that area while I was a consultant. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least :)

He enjoyed the hay ride and kept trying to touch the lady BAH was sitting by on the hay bale. He's a pretty extroverted kid, so far. It makes it easy to take him anywhere. He loves hair.
|Not. Happening. "Get my face out of this...thing."|
After about an hour, it was a thousand degrees Fahrenheit and time for lunch...
|"I want to go NOW!!!"|
So, we picked out our pumpkins, and headed to our favorite brewery for pizza, beer, and football. A great end to our day and to my first pumpkin patch with my sweet boys, with whom I love every moment.
