What a difference a few short years make. We first wrote about the Aloun Farms Pumpkin Patch in 2012. Exploration: Hawaii was a little over a year old and we had a small, yet loyal following. Five years later, we went back to Aloun Farms to do some pumpkin picking, this time, with a little pumpkin of our own.
Pumpkins are to Halloween as rainbow poopies are to unicorns. Being that it was Halloween, the Animal Heads Super Team had to pay a visit to a legitimate pumpkin patch. The Waimanalo Country Farms Pumpkin Patch would be our patch of choice. Oh how disappointed we all were. Why? Read on animal head lovers!
Strange things tend to happen during the ghoulish month of October. For example, the birth of Animal Heads Super Team. What happens when you get a squirrel, panda, giraffe, and unicorn together for a mini road trip? You get a magical trek through the back roads of Oahu. Of course, misadventure and hilarity ensued. Please enjoy this utterly strange drive from Makapuu to Waialua. The unicorn would insist that you did.
Michelle and I made the drive out from town to Kapolei yesterday eager to visit the pumpkin patch at Aloun Farms. It’s been years since we last visited the patch. The last time that we went pumpkin picking must have been pre-2007. How do I know? Easy. I checked my iPhone camera roll and found zero pumpkin photos. And since my iPhone cameral roll contains the memory of everything that I’ve done/seen/touched/tasted since my very first iPhone in 2007 then our last pumpkin adventure must have predated the original iPhone. This post might be about pumpkins, but boy, am I an Apple fan.
