I love Irvine Park Railroad! It's a huge park that makes you feel miles away from city life complete with pony rides, a lake with boats and ducks, a zoo, lots of wide open play spots and of course a train. This time of year they also have a pumpkin patch! Nevaeh loves horses and going to the park to ride on Dan (a pony) is just about the greatest thing she can imagine. You get to ride whatever pony is available and Nevaeh has ended up with Dan everytime we have gone! Charlotte enjoyed running around and picking up pumpkins and sitting on them. I had this vision of adorable fall pumpkin pictures in these cute little matching orange sweaters.... problem? it was like 90 degrees! So determined to have the sweaters I put the girls in shorts and tanks which made them look a little okie-ish, but made for some cute pics anyway. Al eventually made me take the sweaters off our roasting children. I love the fall season and am so ready for overcast days, crisp mornings, colored leaves, warm soups, scarfs, and pumpkins!

Al, Neaveh and Dan!

Classic in hand...pants undone.

Awww! You guys were about 5 minutes from my house! And on the backside of my school :)

It looks like the girls had fun! I remember going there as a kid, but I had a different outcome with pictures... I was crying in pretty much all of them... apparently, I had this thing with life sized animals... I'm still skeptical of Mickey and Minnie Mouse....

Brandi said...

You crack me up! The picture of Char still has me laughing. Tell Aya that I want to meet Dan someday when we visit.
Kiss those precious babies for me.
Love you!

oh but they looked so cute in those orange sweaters! you might as well start teaching them the motto early on" "it doesn't matter how you feel, it matters how you look"
