October has been full of fun fall festivities for our family! We visited Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center with our church group. It was Z's first real pumpkin patch experience, including a petting zoo and tractor-hayride.
This little pumpkin thinks she's worth more that $6.50.

And on base, our housing community had its own little Fall Festival that included pony rides and a wagon ride pulled by Clydesdale horses!

We took a fun trip to Disneyland. We love that the Marine band gets free tickets in return for performing there!
Thea joined us too!
Somebody loves those turkey legs.
The Tea Cups are still her favorite. (That's L's cousins, Paul and Paige, in the other Tea Cup. We just happened to run into them that day!).
This month, Z had to say goodbye to her friend Austin who moved away to Michigan. The gang's last time together at the playground.
We attended the Marine Corps Birthday Ball for our 7th time. It might be our last West Coast Musicians' Ball for awhile since we're transferring to the East Coast!
L also attended a Ladies Retreat in Big Bear with women from our church. Here's her roommate, Sadie (a mother of triplets!!).
In the same weekend, we also went to the San Diego State Homecoming football game. We first caught up with some old friends at the band alumni tailgate party at the stadium.
A roasted the pumpkin seeds while the girls did the carving.
Aren't they cute?!
