Pumpkin Patch

So bummed that our preschool field trip was cancelled due to weather last week and so disappointed that it wouldn't be rescheduled, a few of the other parents and I decided to take the kids to the pumpkin patch after school today. We packed lunches, picked up the kids, and headed straight out to Homestead Farms.

Who knew there was so much fun to be had with hay? And I should mention we didn't actually go on a hay ride - they only run on weekends - so they just had fun with the actual hay itself, Andrew and Joseph throwing it, Ania and Eugenie jumping in it.

It was a short and fun walk out to the pumpkin patch, checking out the pond, crossing little bridges, and running in the fields. Joe Joe picked out 1 pumpkin for himself and 1 for his teacher since she didn't get to come with us.

Right before leaving, a quick wagon ride just because.

And lastly, a random request: "Daddy, can you take a picture of this?"

Absolutely. Anything to make my little pumpkin happy!

That looks like a fun pumpkin patch. Can't wait to see what you carve this year.
