Last weekend we discovered a great pumpkin patch with friends at Spring Hill Cheese Company in Petaluma. It is called Peter Pumpkin Patch and has great activities to do with the kids. You can take a FREE hay ride to the field to pick your own potatoes, you are given a bag and a fork and you start digging, it’s a bit like a doing a Easter egg hunt in the dirt, my son loved it! There is a hay pyramid to climb, old wagons and tractors to see, and pumpkins of all shapes and sizes to run around. You can look at the baby carves some only 8 days old in their little pins before they can join the other cows in the field, or even see a full size cow close up.
For lunch we enjoyed their cheese that comes in a picnic box with crackers, salami and grapes…but best of all was their fresh made ice-cream in vanilla and pumpkin flavor…a first for my son and for me!

Movie of the Week
Emilio Estevez directs his father Martin Sheen in his first lead role in thirty years in “The Way”. Sheen plays a father who travels to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to bring his son’s body home, when he finds out that he died near the beginning of a pilgrimage to Spain he decides to walk it in his honor, meeting interesting characters along the way.
I found it to be a poignant drama about a man going on an inward journey to contemplate about his relationships with others with some moving and humorous moments. View website
