This weekend marked the beginning of the Irvine Regional Park pumpkin patch, and Isaac, Jami, and I went and checked it out. Let me tell you it was a great time. For those of you who don’t know much about the Irvine Regional Park, it is some 400 acre park that was established in 1897, and is California’s first regional park. You can read the pretty cool history here. Year round the park offers train rides, horse back rides, paddle boats and bike rentals, as well as, many, many hiking trails. Currently they also have a pumpkin patch, complete with a maze, haunted house, face painting, and even tractor races for 3 – 7 years old kids. It is also relatively cheap as well, parking is $3 during the week and $5 on weekends. Most big ticket items such as the ponies and train are $4 per person, but right now the maze, and haunted house are free!
Here are some great highlights from our trip:
We Packed our lunch to save some $$$’s (they do have a snack bar, but who doesn’t like a picnic!)
Isaac’s first ever pony ride, they also have larger horses that you can ride at a trot.
And my favorite picture of the day, I don’t know why but this picture just lights me up:
