Although the color of the leaves aren’t changing quite yet, Fall is in the air! And with the new season and month upon us, that means pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pies, and super cute pumpkin patch pictures haha. We were so excited to take Auggie to a pumpkin patch for his first time, and celebrate our first little trip as a family. That’s probably the best thing about everything before he turns one year old — all of the firsts!
After taking in a few suggestions, we ultimately decided to check out Pa’s Pumpkin Patch since it was a short drive. They have a lot of different activities, games, mechanical rides, pumpkins, photo backdrops, and even a small petting zoo (but we skipped this part). It definitely has a unique country fair atmosphere that attracts a lot of locals.
They have a variety of sizes and colored pumpkins, haystacks, corn stalks and a small section where you can pick out your own gourds. You can purchase tickets for the rides and games, but other than that, the pumpkin patch and parking is free!
We came on a Monday early evening (Columbus Day) right around golden hour, and it wasn’t crowded at all. Also, maybe it’s because we’re first time parents, but we noticed so many children around. I have been to this pumpkin patch once before and only noticed other college students — I guess when you get something new, you start to notice it more around you (you know what I’m saying?).
We came across this cute family with their newborn daughter, and took turns taking pictures for each other. Their baby looked so precious, and I really appreciated the parents trying to get Auggie to look at the camera haha. They were really sweet and charming. Auggie was more interested in the huge pumpkins across from us, but I’m glad he took a few seconds to look at my phone camera. Another perk about this pumpkin patch is that it’s definitely stroller-friendly, yay!
We can’t wait until next year when Auggie is (hopefully) walking by then, and maybe we’ll check out the rides and petting zoo. We spent about 30 minutes at the pumpkin patch since there isn’t much we could do because Auggie can’t sit up on his own yet. It was a fun experience nonetheless, and we really enjoyed watching his facial expressions at everything.
You can find more information about their pumpkin patch here. Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for other pumpkin patches in the Los Angeles area. I’d love to check them out!
Have a beautiful day and see you in my next post,
