Waimanalo Pumpkin Patch!


The other day I realized that October is almost over. My favorite month of the entire year has almost passed me by without me even realizing! Between a new job and schedule, a new apartment, and soccer and marathon training, I haven’t gotten to enjoy anything spooky, scary or pumpkin related. Heck, I haven’t even had a pumpkin spice latte! Fail.


When I found myself with an empty, stormy Saturday not suitable for surfing or hiking, I immediately took advantage and dragged my bf and our pup to the pumpkin patch. I absolutely love waimablo, nicknamed “God’s Country” for its astounding beauty between turquoise seas and at the foot of the majestic koolau mountains. 

So we headed to Waimanalo Country Farms for their adorable pumpkin patch. It doesn’t just look old school and country – it is authentically old school and country. From a lemonade and sweet tea stand to a homemade pumpkin cannon and rickety hay ride, it’s the real deal.


Bama was absolutely thrilled by the hay fields and animals and was all smiles the entire time we were there. A lot of the activities are suited for families with small kids, so we stuck to wandering through the giant sunflower fields and picking out the perfect pumpkin.


We picked our way through the patch and found our pumpkin – perfectly round and plump, but with a flat face ideal for carving. I was thrilled to take it home under my arm and had a great time absorbing the overall cuteness. 


We went to the beach across the street and found this rope swing too! I couldn’t have asked for a better Saturday.
