Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

Jack had his first field trip of his life when he went to the pumpkin patch with his preschool class.  Families were welcomed to attend along with their student so Jason, Cal and I went along!

We had such a good time.  Jack was excited about picking out his very own pumpkin to take home.  Side note:  $3 covered the cost of any pumpkin the child wanted to take home plus a goodie bag from the farm.

The kids all got to listen to one of the farmers talk about how they grow pumpkins.  It was a short talk (these are 2.5 year olds after all!) but the kids looked really interested.

Here are some pictures of our morning.  Enjoy!

Jack insisted on wearing his new tiger hat.  And the rain boots were a necessity.  We live in Oregon after all.

In awe of all the pumpkins

I love this picture.  It was overcast but didn't rain on us!

A terrible picture of me but I am rarely in pictures with my kids.  Hello boobage!

"Mommy what is this?"  It was a plastic skull.

Cute baby alert!

  2. Hey Rachel! The sweaters in my pumpking patch post, my mom made them. She sent one for Aubrey at Christmas last year (before she was ever born) it finally fit and when I saw it on her I asked if she could make one for Ella, in a week. Haha, and she did. I love how they turned out.
