Visiting a pumpkin patch is a Portland tradition, which means our primary problem is managing how to do it without getting stuck in a huge crowd. We did this last year, too, and we think we have it figured out.

This year we happened t go on the last weekend before Halloween, which is usually a bad thing, but it was cold, and was supposed to rain, so we had the place mostly to ourselves! We wandered the corn maze for a while, found the trashed remains of a concert/rave the night before, and helped our friends and their adorably-jacketed daughter pick out their front-porch gourds.
We got cold and lost, and recovered from both. Then we all ate Thai food. It was the perfect Portland pumpkin-patch day.
