a fall tradition: pumpkin patch in southern california

2 years ago my mom and I decided to make a trip out to a pumpkin patch in Temecula's wine country to take some fun photos with my baby bump. At the time, I was living in San Diego, so it wasn't too far of a drive. I was 27 weeks pregnancy with Isaac.

Last year, I was living in Texas but planned a trip to Vegas that included a drive down to San Diego. I brought Isaac with me and we thought it was more than fitting to take him to the same pumpkin patch for photos.

This year, Ben, Isaac and I took a quick little trip over to Oceanside. Of course, we had to get over to the pumpkin patch for photos with Isaac and my baby bump. This time around, I was about 34 weeks pregnant.

I always find it so fun to compare photos from year to year to see just how much things have changed! This has definitely become a fall tradition and I hope we can continue to get back to the same pumpkin patch every year! Besides, it gives us an excuse to get to San Diego every. single. year. (photos were taken in October of 2010, 2011, and 2012).

I'm really loving this Fall tradition. We'll definitely be taking the boys back every year (and future baby bumps and kiddos too!).
