This year our family joined my parents for an afternoon at the pumpkin patch. With the most recent heat wave to pummel Southern California it was nice to finally have a cooler weekend to enjoy pumpkins, panning for gold and corn mazes. It wasn't to crowed at the patch and we had plenty of time to do and see everything. Although I've been to several pumpkin patches over the course of three years this one was unique in that it was an actual functioning farm nestled in Temecula's wine country. This place is definitely a family must for the foreseeable future!
