Smashing Pumpkins

Today Logan's friend Molly turns 2 - Happy Birthday Molly!!

Yesterday, we met with Molly and several of her family and friends to celebrate her birthday at the Arata Pumpkin Farm in Half Moon Bay. We were instructed to dress all the kids in their Halloween costumes to snap some pics of the kids together in the pumpkin patch. It didn't go as well as planned, since the kids were more distracted with everything around them than wanting to stand still and look pretty for the camera. So, we got the Dads involved, joining the group photo for a slightly better shot.

Molly was a cute little Ladybug.

Jessie was a caring Mama Kangaroo (with accompanying Joey).

Jamie was a mysterious caped Bat Woman.

Robert was a charming Fireman.

Logan was a snazzy Scottish Golfer who's favorite activity of the day was smashing pumpkins.

We had a really great time - the weather was pretty chilly, so after the photo shoot, we dressed Logan in some warmer clothes to run around in. :) We hit up the huge Bay Hale Maze and then had a delicious spread of picnic food for lunch, topped with cupcakes for dessert. The highlight of our day? Our picky eater packing away a plateful of sugarsnap peas all on his own! (he loved snapping the pods open to find the peas laying inside)

After stuffing ourselves silly, we decided to head home since Logan was starting to get pretty cranky and showing the desperate signs of needing a nap. Most everyone else followed suit and we hit the road back home.

Thanks again Kim and Nathan - and Happy BIG TWO to Molly! :)
