There's just something wrong with going to a pumpkin patch when it's 75 outside. In October! But we had a blast with our sweet friends Windy and Marylin at this farm outside L.A. We took a tractor ride, picked pumpkins, fed the animals, and neither of the girls would stop grinning as they rode the ponies. The first time Karly went, she kept pounding her heels into the side of the poor pony to make him go faster. The attendant informed her that, much to her dismay, they wouldn't be galloping that day.
