Today Johnny's preschool went on a field trip to one of the many nearby pumpkin patches. We had never been to this particular one so it was fun! Addie and Diadora came along and we all got out in the sun for the day!
Most of Johnny's class.
They took a tour around the whole place. One of the stops was to talk about the different kinds of pumpkins and gourds.
Next was the green house. The tour guide showed how even in the winter they can grow lots of different things and they all got to feel some corn. There were also animals to see and one stop was all about the tools people used to use to do chores like making butter and washing clothes!
These 2 walked around almost the whole time holding hands. I think it is so sweet that he wants to be around his big sister!
Snow White and my little dwarfs!
At the end they all got to pick out a small pumpkin to take home. He picked his out right away and we put it in the car so I wouldn't have to carry it around. When he saw that the one Addie had picked was bigger than his he insisted on putting his back and getting a bigger one! It's always a competition!
There was a short corn maze to walk through. Johnny and Brody were picking which paths to take. Of course Addie was right there acting very motherly as usual. :)
I think one of the best parts for the kids was a huge pile of straw they could play in! They had toys and cars to play with and ride on. Eventually they discovered that they could ride the cars down the hill!
When I finally let Dia out of the carrier she patiently waited for her turn to sit in the little red car.
She wasn't too happy when Cohen tried to join her and push her out! Good thing he is cute.
