I took the boys for our yearly trip to Arata Pumpkin Farm in Half Moon Bay, California last Friday. The hay maze was back so I let the boys explore to their hearts content. Søren did not like the minotaur at the start of the maze but quickly forgot about it once we were inside. Afterwards we picked out our pumpkins and headed home. My favorite part about going to Arata’s (or anywhere on the coast) is always the scenic drive home.

The skeleton and goblin sweaters that the boys are wearing were gifted to them by Toto Knits, a wonderful company that empower’s single mothers in Kenya to provide for their family by producing these beautiful organic sweaters. Each piece is hand signed by the knitter and shipped to you (worldwide). To learn more please visit www.totoknitsshop.com.

Do you have any special fall traditions that you practice?

  1. That little sad face! As much as it makes me “awww lil guy” for Soren, I just love it. I didn’t realize Aiden went too, for some reason I thought it was just you and Soren who went.

    My nephews and I, when I was home in Canada ran through a corn maze. Oh MAN it was so hard to find a way out and you know what else? They had a fake dead scare crow man hunched over in a dead end. I was leading the way out with my youngest nephew and let out a blood curdling scream (I may have over reacted)…and scoooped my nephew up and bolted. He completely laughed at me because he’s seen it before. It scared the crap out of me. Clearly.

    OMG at Aiden holding SOREN and Soren’s squishy face in the next pic!!!!

  2. oh, that sad face photo! he is just too cute. my husband’s grandmother was in town on Sunday and we took her to lunch near half moon bay…duarts? i think its called. agreed…that drive is something beautiful!

  3. We went to Lemos Farm this year (also in HMB), and oh my goodness, never again. We went on a weekday in early October and the place was a madhouse. Arata looks a lot more like what I had in mind, as in actual fields of pumpkins. We’ll be sure to check it out next year! (Also, those sweaters are amazing)

    1. Ohhhh, Lemos is ALWAYS packed. We went once for a very dear friend’s birthday party and vowed to go never again. It’s so hard to get in and out of and always so crazy.

  4. I so love visiting your blog and seeing your fun pictures! Those sweaters are adorable too, I will be checking out that link. Thanks so much for sharing, the kids really looked like they had a fun time

  5. I’d love to check out this place. I can imagine kids racing their way through this fun maze. Very exciting!

  6. I miss Half Moon Bay! I have family in that area. 🙂 Originally from Monterey area myself! That misty overcast looks SOOO familiar! I love your photos <3

  7. What an awesome pumpkin patch/farm that is!! I love visiting those this time of year! <3 Especially the mazes, petting zoos, and hay rides! <3

  8. I’ve never been pumpkin picking before, but every year I see people posting these types of great pictures that make it look SO fun! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I’m a fan of mazes in general but a hay maze sounds like a whole new type of fun! Your boys sweaters are adorable 🙂
