Pumpkin Patch at Aloun Farm

Fall is pretty cool.  Halloween.  Thanksgiving.  And I guess getting ready for Christmas (Thanksgiving is still my favorite).  I suppose as a kick off to Fall, we headed out to the west side of Oahu to pick our pumpkin at the Aloun Farms.

This place was PACKED!  There was still a lot of pumpkins to choose from even though the place was jamming.  They had pumpkins of all sizes.

My kids were excited to find that perfect pumpkins.  Thank goodness they focused on the small sizes because there was no way I could carry the big ones.  My kids also wanted to find the very tiny pumpkins and the white ones too.

There are a range of things to do from a bouncy house to a hay ride.  There are food for purchase and even a mini-farmers market.  Parking was a $1 per person in the car.  The down side was the dirt.  Dirt was being kicked around everywhere.  DO NOT go to the Farm if you just washed your car.  AND if you have a modified car that is lowered, this would NOT be the best place to go.  Wear clothes that you really don’t care about, and wear shoes, sunglasses, and a hat.  You may want to bring water too.  We all took a shower when we got home, and I was blowing dirt out of my nose for a while.  All in all, it was still fun.  We would definitely go again.

One thing I wasn’t prepared for was evidence of Oahu’s rail project.  It was right in Aloun Farms.

This was insane to see it right in front of me.  Who knows what the future holds, but it was definitely a reality check that change is definitely hitting this island in a big way.
