A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Hey, y'all.  Hope everyone's having a good week so far. Grades are due for the first nine weeks already.  That means 1/4 of the school year has already passed.  Really?  How?

But I'm not gonna talk about how it's been a crazy fast start to the school year .  I'm gonna talk about my kid's first ever field trip.  Her preschool class recently visited a pumpkin patch. I've always wanted to take her to a pumpkin patch, but October has always been so busy for us.  We've never had time to go. So I was glad to learn her school had a trip all planned out.

She's only three, so there was no way I was sending her on a field trip without me. (Some of y'all can probably do that because your kid is always well-behaved and follows all the rules.  But my kid is a bit of a rebel and sometimes has an agenda of her own.) My mom went on the trip, too, which helped out a lot.

The pumpkin patch was cute and had plenty for the kids to do - inflatables, petting farm, pony rides, tractor rides, and hay rides. The kids also took home their own pumpkin from the patch.

My favorite part of the field trip, though?  They had funnel cakes and candy apples.  Be still my heart. 

And they were SO good.  (That's right. I had both.)

And guess what? I didn't even have to share with the kid.  She was either busy playing while my mom and I shared the funnel cake, or napping  in the car home while I enjoyed an entire candy apple.

Oh, don't act like you don't/didn't sneak to eat snacks so you wouldn't have to share with the little person/people in your house. It never fails -- they get ONE bite of your delicious snack and it magically becomes theirs. I made SURE that didn't happen this time.

Ha!

So it was a good day.  A great first field trip for M!


Feeding the cows and goats.


I left that to my mom and M.  NO THANKS to goat slobber.






Pretty sunflower garden. 



My two favorite girls.



The trip was lots of fun, and even put my kid to sleep on the way home (which is rare these days).  Success!

Enjoy the rest of your week, folks!

Love,
G
