Waimanalo Country Farms

...pumpkin patch in Hawaii! Last year, Zachy was two months old when fall (and all the festivities that go with it) arrived. We had the best intentions of heading out to the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin for our new little pumpkin, but c-section mania, baby carrier issues, and sleeplessness prevented pumpkin patching. Not this year! Today's fun more than made up for missing out last year. I am amazed when I think about all the things Gabe did and saw over the course of a couple of hours for only $20. And here's the list:

1. Picked out the 2012 family pumpkin
2. Ate and dripped shave ice with and on brother
3. Decorated mini pumpkin
4. Observed Jackson Chameleons lounging on the arm of volunteer workers
5. Ate a hamburger (they don't do cheese) with brother
6. Petting zoo with 600lb pig, turtles, sheep, cow, donkey, and others
7. Pumpkin cannon (best event of the outing)
8. Large sweet tea in take home mason jar (moms treat of the day)
9. Real Tractor!

We didn't even do everything. Next weekend we hope to go back with Isom for the corn maze, hayride, cornbread (they had just run out), and more pumpkin cannon-ing. It was really nice to be able to take Zach to the pumpkin patch for the first time and put a smile on Gabe's face (Isom just left for a week to Okinawa). I would without a doubt recommend checking out this country farm. The folks were kind, the grub was fun and cheap, and it was a break from all the scary aspects of Halloween. I'd say it was good clean fun, but we used about half a pack of baby wipes on our feet when we got back to the car...apparently dust and hay aren't a good combo with rubbah slippahs. Next time we can all wear our overalls and boots.
