Hello Fall!

We had an AMAZING summer. We took trips, enjoyed the hot summer sun, discovered some new places around San Francisco, had family and friends visit, and just enjoyed the summer. Which is good--since it will be our last one here in San Francisco (more about that later). The girls have grown SO much during the summer and while I loved my little summer blogging hiatus, I probably won't take another hiatus again. I missed it and there is such a huge gap now that I have to fill and the girls grow so fast that I would rather keep it up to date. I will be posting about our amazing summer vacations and trips in upcoming posts and probably in parts as there are just to go through!

We welcomed fall by taking the girls to the pumpkin patch in Half Moon Bay. It is actually the Pumpkin Capitol of the World. Yup, hard to believe that little old Half Moon Bay, a sleepy beach town, holds the most pumpkins than any other place in the world. Every year Half Moon Bay has their Annual Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival and World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off and people from all over bring their HUGE pumpkins for weighing to see who wins. Last years winner was a farmer that brought a 1,500 lb pumpkin! They also do pumpkin catapults and other festivities. Mimi was here visiting and we took the girls to one of the pumpkin patches and let them run around and pick their pumpkins. They were so excited running up and down the hundreds of pumpkins and I managed to get some great pictures. Kourtney loved to challenge herself to see what the heaviest pumpkin she could pick up was. After we played in the pumpkins a bit, I let the girls jump in bounce house that was also there. This was their first time ever in one of these things as there are usually lots of kids jumping in them or it is RSV season. But, since it was a Monday and we were the only people there, I let them in and they loved it of course! I can't wait to see them carve out their pumpkins this year and go trick or treating. I feel like they'll enjoy it a lot more than last year because I think they are at that age where they understand a lot more about what is going on. This age is so fun! Here are some pictures from our pumpkin patch adventures:
