We love Portland in October! Our favorite thing to do is to visit a few pumpkin patches. We love The Pumpkin Patch at Sauvie Island. We buy sweet corn, navigate the maize and take pictures all over the farm. Another favorite is Lee Farms in Tualatin. We go in the morning, sip hot cocoa while we walk around and decide what we want to do, then we buy our tickets and end up doing almost all of the activities. We pick out our pumpkins last and just before leaving we grab some pumpkin donuts for the ride home. This year will be our baby boy's first Halloween, so his sister has already been dressing him up as Rainbow Boy to match her Rainbow Girl costume. We'll see how she dresses him up for Halloween!
