It's been a tradition over the past years to take Big D to the pumpkin patch on his birthday. We visit two of the most popular in LA - the infamous Mr. Bone's Pumpkin Patch, notorious for their celebrity sightings, and Tapia Brothers Farms in our neck of the woods. Both have many fun activities to offer for kids and families. Slides, petting zoos, pony rides, bounce houses and of course fields and fields of small to big pumpkins. Of course, my main agenda for taking the kids to the patch is for that picture perfect moment for a family picture...and after 2 visits, and a hundred shots later, not one frame worthy photo of the four of us.
