Bet you didn’t know that the pumpkin patch is where all the cool kids hang out. Or maybe you did know that. Either way have you made your annual trek to a Halloween themed happy place? I hope you have. In this pumpkin dreamland post I share gigantic amounts of photos with you. My intention is to make you *smile* like we did.

This is a day that we will all remember forever. Life is all about the great memories

We could spend the entire month of October living at this place….

The Irvine Regional Park in Orange County, CA has a little bit of everything. Perhaps I should say a lot of everything. This place is HUGE. You can cruise around on paddle boats, ride the train, feed ducks, ride mini ponies, visit the petting zoo and much, much more.

Everywhere you look there are people having picnics, enjoying the sunshine and each others company. Creating memories.

Scarecrow at Irvine Regional Park Pumpkin Patch, Orange County, California

Boo! I know that scarecrow and the haunted house look awfully scary. Not. That pole inside the scarecrow looks a bit painful though.

Not scary is very good when you are two small kids and your mom is a wuss. Besides, mom is waaaayyyy too busy taking pictures of everything to be scared. She might drop her camera or something.

We ponder how big they are now and how big they will be next year. Let’s not rush the time OK?!

A little tulle, a little pink, some fringe boots and all is right with the world.

That looks spooky too. Boo!

Rides round and round in circles in mini John Deere tractors are a hoot!

Isn’t it amazing when mom gets caught up somewhere with her camera and daddy treats you to cotton candy

Kids with cotton candy. Orange County lifestyle: the OC.

Really a treat because this only happens like once a year…maybe a few more times if you are well behaved.

Little Boy with Cotton Candy

All that sugar is not only a huge & unexpected treat….but it makes us act even more silly!

Not too big or too small. Just right for carving at home.

I begged my hubs to grab a few clicks of me & the kids before we left.

My daughter was into it. My son however was crashing from that cotton candy business.

What do you have planned for Halloween? Have you carved pumpkins yet?
