It's the Great Pumpkin Patch Tradition
The sunniest scarecrow ever.
For the third year in a row, we brought Evan to the Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark to check out their annual Fall Harvest Festival.
Yeah, Moorpark -- deep in Simi Valley -- is quite a drive. But it's sometimes nice to get outta town, and Underwood's Fall Harvest Festival is a hit with kids. Admission is $8.50 on Saturdays and Sundays and $3.00 per person Monday through Friday; children under 2 are free. A tractor-drawn wagon ride comes with the paid admission on the weekend.
Like I've written in past years, the other attractions (which cost extra) probably aren't worth the price... just go, enjoy the live music, the corn stalk maze, the pumpkin patch and the tractor ride. The festival continues from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until Oct. 31 (when kids in costume get in for free). Parking is free.
Tractor ride around the farm -- much longer than last year.
Yeah, they won't be running out of pumpkins.
A green gourd only a mother could love.
Retro John Deere.
It was "tractor weekend" when we visited last week. Lots of tractors. You get the drill.
Pumpkin chicken ravioli, anyone?
Wait, is that Bill Clinton in the train station?!
If it were up to Blogger Toddler, we would have just stayed at this wooden toy train all day. Screw the pumpkins, you can buy 'em at Trader Joe's anyway.
