Ever since Munch was a baby, we've made a trek out to Dixon to a great farm where we go on hay rides and pick a pumpkin off the vine-
it's the same place we head to chop down a Christmas tree
This year, we decided to stick a little closer to home and explore the farming valley in our own little town. Just east of the Napa Valley, there are vineyards, olive groves, and many farms in the Suisun Valley
. One favorite produce stand
is always crazy busy, with people loading up wheelbarrows full of fruits and veggies at incredible prices. At the pumpkin patch
, we discovered a huge variety of pumpkins and squash- including these beautiful swan squash
but first Munch had to climb the hay bale tower,
do a little pumpkin bowling,
and do a run through the corn maze.
Finally, we headed into the fields
to find just the right pumpkin. We also loaded up our wheelbarrow with a bunch of other squash
before stopping for a delicious snack of pumpkin bread.
At home, Munch quickly went to work on painting her mini pumpkins
and later that night, we carved our larger pumpkins-
They turned out really well and Munch enjoyed sitting in the dark with them
as she ate a sweet treat- ghost cupcakes!
