Webb Ranch is a family owned farm located in Palo Alto, CA and has been in operation since 1922. Their pumpkin patch is by far the cutest I’ve seen in the Bay Area.
With 2 kids that are 4 1/2 years apart I’m constantly looking for activities they can do where they will both have fun. This is a challenge because one is a super active 5-year old boy and the other is an 8-month baby girl. Previously I’ve been limited to the park and the local library but now that pumpkin patches are are everywhere, I have been taking them there and I must say they both LOVE it! Emilia is such a curious and fascinated baby. She wants to touch anything and everything. Oh and she wants to lick everything too. Gross. And Gabriel, being the 5 -year old boy that he is, is so super active and has so much energy to release so the bouncy castles at the pumpkin patch are exactly what he needs!
Last weekend, we went to a pumpkin patch in Palo Alto, California called Webb Ranch and it was probably THE BEST pumpkin patch we’ve visited this year. They had a bunch of pumpkins all different shapes and sizes. I honestly wanted to take them all home! Everything was so cute. There were hay rides, bouncy castles, pony rides and a taco stand but unfortunately it started to rain while we were there so we didn’t get a chance to do any of the fun activities. It didn’t matter though because the kids had a blast just walking around checking out all the different pumpkins and riding in the wagon.
Let me be real for a sec though. Sometimes its really really hard to get motivated to leave the house with these two. They are an absolute handful and this particular outing, my husband was with me, but during the weekdays its me and them against the world. I literally have to give myself a pep talk before taking them out by myself because its hard, man. But, for their sanity and mine, its best that we get out of the house, breathe in the fresh air and get some vitamin D. I find that on days where we don’t leave the house and spend it indoors watching TV, its harder to put them to sleep, they are super cranky and just overall not fun to be around. So while I know that they will be a handful when we are out, at least I know that they were able to release some of their pent up energy and will have a better nights sleep which equals uniterupted sleep for Rowell and I. That sounds so heavenly right now. *sigh*
