Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patch!

by meleeneh on November 15, 2015

If you dare drive over the hill to Half Moon Day on a weekend during the month of October, traffic is horrendous; the entire city and all its farms host fantastic pumpkin patches full of activities for the entire family and an amazing selection of pumpkins. That’s why we decided to take an afternoon off of work to go during the weekday. We invited my parents along as well, and our first stop was Lemos Farm.

Lemos Farm has endless activities for the little ones, including a pony ride, hay ride, train ride, and petting zoo. We did all of them! I was convinced that Miro would have been terrified of the ponies at first glance, but he was thrilled to be on the pony ride. He kept talking to the pony trainer and pointing at all of the other ponies. That sight, alone, made my day! The petting zoo was hilarious as the goats tried to eat Miro’s shirt and corduroy pants. I was a very protective mama bear protecting my little cub from the animals, but my little cub was laughing up a storm instead. Finally, the train conductor allowed Miro to sit in the conductor’s seat and blow the train horn. He was a natural driver!

After Lemos Farm, we headed to the beach for some views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. We also pet wild horses nearby. On our way home, we stopped at one more farm where we purchased our Halloween pumpkins as well as some cooking pumpkins, which I later used to make a pumpkin soup. Yummy! Miro helped to push all of the pumpkins to the car in the wheel barrow.

Now, one of Miro’s only English words is pumpkin, which he pronounces “pump-uh-kin.” 🙂
