For several months, we've been talking excitedly about going to the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. The festival took place last weekend and we drove down to HMB with our good friends, Tim and Erin. We were anticipating a quaint little festival with plenty of pumpkins and a big pumpkin patch. Almost everyone in our party dressed in their fall plaid for the occasion.
While Half Moon Bay is a gorgeous location, we were a bit disappointed with the festival. It was super crowded and there wasn't a pumpkin in sight! There were, however, plenty of pumpkin flavored treats (pumpkin ale, ice cream, bread, cookies, and pie) to be sampled. (And sample we did!)
The only pumpkins we caught sight of were these giant carved crazies as we were exiting the festival.
Nonetheless, we were happy for the mini road trip with friends and we were able to squeeze in a quick (windy!) stop to take in the beautiful Pacific Ocean (Hayden's first time).
