It only took two weeks of planning to get over there, and lots of canceling and rescheduling due to sickies or weather but we finally got over the yesterday! The kids were excited, no that’s an understatement, they were ecstatic!
If you live in Los Angeles County, Saugus to me more exact or anywhere near that area I suggest you go to Lombardi’s Ranch. I have been going there since I was a little girl and let me tell you, it’s not like those “pumpkin patches” that are on the street corner that charge you an arm and a leg for a pumpkin and to ride their scary carnival type rides. Lombardi’s actually grows their own pumpkins. Imagine that a pumpkin patch that grows pumpkins, huh what a concept. Every year they grow their own pumpkins and pick them when they are at their peak and set them out throughout their land for families to come and choose their perfect one. They have a sunflower maze that you get to walk through and see all different types of scarecrows that local organizations and schools have made for display. They have a corn maze and a little animal area, even a train ride around the grounds of the farm. Not only does Lombardi’s sell pumpkins they also have corn, tomatoes, squash and watermelon. They are only only for a few months out of the year so don’t delay, check out the link above and head on over for some good family fun.
Now what would a post about a trip to the pumpkin patch be without some pictures.
