Pumpkin Patch!!

We had a fantastic time at our pumpkin patch field trip! We took a school bus from Sexton Mountain to the Plumper Pumpkin Patch. 

The bus had a very calming effect on us!
Once we got to the pumpkin patch we learned all about the different types of pumpkins and squash they grow on site. We were able to touch the different pumpkins and feel if the skin was bumpy or smooth! Then we went on a hay ride to see the grounds. 
The hay ride was fun!

Miss Jessi came with us too!
After the hay ride we ate lunch in a green house that had a cover. It was sprinkling rain, so we were grateful for the roof over our heads! 
We were so hungry! 
After lunch it was on to the slide, corn maze, and petting zoo! We all had a great time sliding down a huge slide, running through the maze, and petting donkeys, baby cows, goats, and even a llama. 

So many animals!

Waiting patiently for the big slide.

Watching friends taking turns sliding down the slide.

So high up! So much fun!

Definitely not lost in the corn maze. :)

Oh yeah, there was bowling too!

Waiting with a heavy bowling ball!
Then if was off to the U-Pick pumpkin patch! Picking our own pumpkins was very fun. We had to make sure we could carry our own pumpkins. So we made sure that each pumpkin wasn't too heavy!

All smiles!

Some of the pumpkins were heavy.

We all carried our own pumpkins!

We had a great time at Plumper Pumpkin Patch!
Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped make this field trip a success. We had an incredible time. We learned about pumpkins and squash, we took turns and waited patiently, and picked out our own pumpkins independently. All in all, the pumpkin patch was a success!!
