Blogiversary Giveaway Day 3: Irvine Park Railroad! Pumpkin Patch | @IrvineParkRR #GIVEAWAY

Irvine Park, you have see my pictures of my family enjoying all the festivities but have you been yourself? It is a wonderful educational park that has so much to offer! It has the OC Zoo, stables, lakes, trails, historical sites, and more!

My favorite thing about the Irvine Park are the holiday traditions that the Irvine Park Railroad offers.

During Christmas, there is the Christmas Train and activities, Easter has the Easter Bunny and egg hunt activities, and my favorite time of year, the Halloween Pumpkin Patch!

Every October, the Irvine Park Railroad transforms their educational area into a pumpkin patch and sets up fun activities for kids to enjoy. There is even a haunted house!

I introduced my friends little girl to the festivities and here are a pictures from the day.

Since my little fireman didn't want his face painted, he chose to get a balloon sword from the vendor next door.


After getting their faces painted to look like their favorite kitty, the kids wanted to play some of the carnival games. Everyone was a winner and they all chose T-Rexes.


The pumpkin patch had a great variety of sizes and the kids loved running around finding the perfect pumpkin just their size.

After stowing the pumpkins and T-Rexes in the car, we got down to some serious playing!  Bounce houses and mazes were among the fun.

Panning for gold was especially fun and the kids loved taking home their "nuggets"!

Pony rides were next.

You can't go to Irvine Park Railroad and not go on the train!  It is a great way of seeing some of the fun activities throughout the park.

My kids favorite part of the festivities was the cookie decorating!  I can't even see the cookie under all of their frosting! They ate a few bites and saved the rest for later.

Look out! Crazy kid drivers! My kids love driving these John Deere tractors and they thought it was a bumper car ride! Oops!

After a few photo opps... I had 3 tired kids on my hands.  We decided to head home and have lunch.
