It’s that time again! The Fall Festival of Love! Irving and I started this fun little fall tradition back in 2005!

A look back:
2005-2010 | 2011 | 2012

This year we carpooled with some friends and met up with a few more people there! Adele’s friend Claudia sat next to her in the car… and even brought toy remotes for them to play with. She thought that was awesome.

We checked out the animals for a while. The goats were a hit. We didn’t go into the petting zoo section, but that’s something I’d like to do with Adele soon!

Then we found the hay bale pyramid. I didn’t think they’d be too into it, but they wanted to climb to the top, so we indulged them.

Um… where did my baby go?

Up and down, up and down…

Even though it was a million degrees out, we headed to the pumpkin patch for some more photos.


That tongue!

Little miss independent over there!
Hee hee, that tongue again!

Can’t believe last year, she couldn’t even sit up without propping her up with pumpkins!

And this year, she’s walking around!

Miraculously, we got one great family photo! Not easy these days with a curious squirmy toddler!

Some more photos from the day!
Oh hey, new haircut!
And my absolute favorite photo from the day! Love this girl.

We came home with two cute sugar pumpkins and one mini baby pumpkin (half the size of the one she’s holding above). She’s been carrying the baby pumpkin around with her everywhere lately. It came with us in the car on the way to daycare this week. She’s a fan of fall too! Just like her mama!

Yep, more Fall Festival of Love posts. What can I say, I look forward to this day all year long.



Pumpkins are cool… but throw in some hay, and it’s the most fun ever!







Three cheers for Pumpkins!

This face kills me. Why is she so funny?

Whoo hoo! More Hay!

Next year, we’ll be chasing her all over that pumpkin patch!

Fall Festival of Love: 2012. You did not disaappoint.






Help! Lost in the Corn Maze! October 18, 2012

The Corn Maze at Underwood Farms is CRAZZZZY! It’s so hard! Luckily the all-you-can-eat Watermelon slush gave me the will-power to actually make it all the way through this year.

Adele was mesmerized by the corn stalks. I think she quite enjoyed it!

The end of the maze is a giant Hay Pyramid. Guess who climbed to the top?


This little kid Rules. He has a corn stalk torch! He’s awesome.

Then I climbed to the top too. Cause I’m adventurous like that.

Erica climbed up with me. haha I love things that remind me of being a kid again.


More Fall Cuteness coming tomorrow!


Adele’s First Fall Festival of Love! October 17, 2012

Irving and I started a tradition in 2005 where we visit a farm in LA each year and call it the “Fall Festival of Love”. It’s a fun excuse to get out of the city and experience a bit of ‘the country’ for a day. Last year when we went, we had just found out we were pregnant!

This is me recreating what my big belly looked like just four months ago!


I remember thinking how fun it would be ‘a year from now’ when our baby was here with us! Crazy what a difference a year can make!

Of course, the day we went, it was 90+ degrees out and it most definitely didn’t feel like fall (so annoying). But we made the most of it. It was an awesome day.

Stuff like this is so much fun as an adult, but to experience it with a baby too gives it a whole new meaning. I was SO excited to show Adele the pumpkins and look at the farm animals. I’m sure it will only be more fun the older she gets too.
We are so lucky to have such an easy-going baby. Despite the super hot weather, Adele was a champ and seemed happy no matter where we put her.

Can’t quite sit up yet. haha whoops!

She was fascinated by the pumpkins. She’s so curious about¬†everything!

I love these shots of Adele with her daddy.

Hey, mom was here too!

I’m so excited to create memories for Adele. I know she won’t really remember these things we’re doing now since she’s too little, but I want to establish the tradition of doing fun family things.

Some of these cute photos are courtesy of Erica!

I can promise a few more Adele-In-The-Pumpkins posts. Too many cute pictures for just one entry. Stay tuned!
