日誌diary • 南瓜節特輯 // pumpkin patch + petting zoo! 挑南瓜初體驗


有橘色恐懼症的人可以跳過這篇不看沒關係! lol


每年一接近九月十月就會開始看到大量的橘/黑色裝飾品all over the place~ 沒錯, 因為萬聖節快到了!  
其實我對這個節日本身是沒什麼興趣, 但那無所不在的南瓜我就很喜歡了~
所以我姑且稱10/31為南瓜節吧!   

今年的南瓜節我做了一件從來沒做過的事.. 那就是去pumpkin patch!! 
因為sherry小妞號稱是全世界最喜歡南瓜的女生
(好啦 可能沒那麼誇張.. 大概是全la最喜歡的而已XD)
所以決定要和她一起去見見世面~  南瓜兒  我們來了 (´▽`)


我們去了位在huntington & myrtle上的
入場費一人$3, 但如果跟其他activities一起買的話就可以waived掉, 所以我們就買了petting zoo :D  (根本童心未泯)


warning** if you have "orange color phobia", you can skip this post! lol

every year the color orange & black begins to pop up all over the place when halloween is around the corner! although i'm not interested in "halloween" itself but i like pumpkins! so let me just call 10/31 the pumpkin day~!

i did something that i've never done before for this year's pumpkin day, that is to go to pumpkin patch! because sherry (my sweet roommate) is the girl who loves pumpkin the most in the whole wide world (ok, maybe not that extreme. she's the number one fan of pumpkin among l.a.! how's that? XD) so i decided to go check out a pumpkin patch with her~ 

we went to the one that's on huntington & myrtle (city of monrovia). entrance fee was $3/person. but if you buy other activities like pony ride, bounce house..etc., the fee will be waived. so we bought the petting zoo tickets :D

pumpkin patch果然很厲害, 裡面好多南瓜啊啊啊啊   看的我臉都橘了!
(是認真很橘, 他們為了製造效果/檔太陽, 整個空間是籠罩在橘色的布幕裡…. 所以所有東西都變成橘色哈哈)
我很努力修圖才勉強調出”稍微沒那麼橘”的照片…… 大家將就著看吧~

pumpkin patch is cool indeed! there're tons of pumpkins inside!! even my face turned orange! hahaha...coz they use those orange tents to cover the whole area. and everything inside just automatically turned orange! it took me a lot of efforts to edit these photos, and i could barely make them "a little less orange"..... ha..

那裡有大大小小各式各樣的南瓜, 我好喜歡白色南瓜唷! (就白色控阿╮(╯_╰)╭)  

小南瓜超級可愛! 我和sherry很認真的挑了超久, 才選到我們最喜歡的~

inside the patch, there are different sizes, colors, shapes, and kinds of pumpkins! i especially love those mini white pumpkins~ they are so adorable & cute <3 sherry and i spent a good time picking our favorite little pumpkins~

這顆超級大!! 我應該無法搬起它… 

this one is ginormous! i can't even lift it up...

逛完南瓜區, 我們來到petting zoo,
一人有一小杯飼料可以餵動物~  

那些羊兒們跟我家的貓一樣, 看到食物就瘋掉也不管餓不餓反正就是要吃就對了!!!
有幾隻超級激動.. 連腳都上來!  Σ(lliд゚ノ)ノ
但是因為他們體型比貓貓大有點多, 所以我一開始整個很驚恐 哈哈哈  (看我的臉應該看得出端倪…)  

and here comes the petting zoo! each person get to have a small cup of food that can be feed to those little pals~ those goats! they're like my cats, which get crazy when they see food!! they are just so determined to eat regardless they are hungry or not... some even put their feet on us! even though my cats do the same thing, but these goats are way bigger than my kitties, so i was pretty frightened in the beginning hahaha (i bet you can tell from my face!)

其實有一隻很溫柔, 都慢慢吃, 也不會踩我 ❤

but there's this one goat who was really gentle, she ate slowly and didn't step on me ❤

還有兩隻三個多月的小豬!
吃一樣的飼料, 所以我也餵了一下他們~  頗可愛的 -///-

然後當天highlight是 -> 我在餵小豬的時候, sherry為了幫我拍照而往前傾, 結果頭髮被那個在黏蒼蠅的塑膠條黏住!!!! 她當場大叫 我當場大笑XDDDD  還一直虧她說她變成蒼蠅了hahaha (我好壞)

and there were two little piglets! they eat the same thing so i also fed them some food~ 

here's the highlight of the day, are you ready? sherry was trying to take photos of me feeding the piglets, so she bent forward.. and her hair got stuck to those gluey plastic strings that supposed to catch the flies!!!! she screamed and i laughed! hahahaha i was so mean but it was just too funny!! sherry became a fly XDDD

最後我們還挑了一顆中小型的南瓜~  是要拿來做菜的!
嘿嘿 敬請期待南瓜節特輯之二!

很開心的帶著南瓜們離開, 放在饅頭裡超可愛呀..! (饅頭是我的車~)  


pumpkin patch初體驗的結論是:
看到很多南瓜還蠻好玩, 拍拍照也不錯,
不過南瓜價位比一般超市賣得貴 (還要加上入場費)
所以一生去一次也就夠了  哈哈哈

happy pumpkin's day! 

we also got a medium size pumpkin, which will be use for a pumpkin recipe! please stay tuned for the 2nd post of this pumpkin day series! 

we left the patch with our pumpkins & we couldn't stop smiling~

so the conclusion for my first ever pumpkin patch experience is: it's fun to see that many pumpkins, and it's fun to take photos. but their price for pumpkins are way higher than the ones from supermarket, plus there's an entrance fee.. so i think this will be my one and only time going to a patch. lol

happy pumpkin's day!
