Pickin Pumpkins

We set out this morning to do what we tried to do last weekend…go to Murray Farms in Bakersfield. Luckily we were succesful this time, although there were a few bumps in the road. We got to Murray Farms and headed to the life-size ant farm and corn maze, which were super cool. Then we decided we would do the hay wagon ride and go pick some pumpkins, but I was thirsty so I wanted to go back to the car and get my bottle of water when we discovered Sal had locked the keys in the car. Uh oh. Were pretty far out from anything and a service call could take some time. That’s not a big deal though, there were plenty of things to do. The problem was that Sal and I dressed for winter. We put Roman in a short sleeve shirt and brought a jacket so he was okay, but on October 29th it was well into the 80’s. We were dying.

So we proceeded to the hay ride figuring it would take some time. I must say that it was a really neat ride narrated by the youngest Murray, and in the middle of the trip they stop at a mini pumpkin patch where Roman picked the pumpkin you see above. About the same time we got a call from the guy that was going to pop the locks and he was at the wrong farm 45 min away. Ugh…. So we ate  and went to the petting zoo while we waited. He finally arrived and we were granted access to the car once again! Yay! We rounded out the day at the mall, and got the rest of Roman’s Halloween outfit. It was a pretty eventful day and we are all pretty tired, tomorrow will be more of the same but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
