Los Angeles, California: Another sunny day in SoCal and the perfect opportunity to take Little Leo to find the perfect pumpkin at Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, California.
It was a 40+ mile drive from Los Angeles, but the fabulous "harvest festival" staged at the farm was well worth the drive - plus we saw Jay Leno tooling down the freeway in an antique roadster convertible.
I am not going to apologize for the extraordinary amount of photos posted today of Leo. He's my grandson. It's my blog.
We rode around the farm in a hay wagon pulled by two 15-year-old massive Percheron draft horses:There is nothing cuter than a laughing toddler.
PHOTO FLASHBACK: Just for fun, here is a photo of the kids last year at a pumpkin patch. Leo was just walking. Next it was time for Leo to choose his pumpkin. Obviously a very serious decision.
Then it was time for lunch - fish tacos. We also visited their produce stand: Leo was getting tired - he had been running around for several hours - but rallied when he found a playhouse built of pumpkins: That face!
The haul was complete - it was time to head home. Another fabulous day with my family! After Leo went down for a nap, I flew back to Portland. When I went through TSA inspection, straw fell out of my shoes. Photo by Steve
In Seattle, DT enjoyed watching the Seahawks beat the Tennessee Titans with the Family of Friends, then drove back to Portland.
Until my next update, I remain, your reunited correspondent.
