Pumpkin Patch

On Friday we went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch. It was quite a trip from from where we live. At first I wasn't happy that a kindergarten class was going on such a long trip. Once we arrived I knew it was worth the drive.

We drove down a gravel road through the tree nursery. Once we reached the truck loaded with pumpkins we were finally there.

I just love this truck! Oh, the stories it could tell.

Mama, Daddy, you have to come see the ducks.

The ducks were cute, but the view is what caught my eye.

I felt such peace as I looked over the pond.

Next it was time to hit the pumpkin patch. We loaded onto the hay wagon and off we went.

I love this picture! It captures the fun and joy of the day.

The pumpkins are grown among the Christmas trees. Talk about making every space count.

I like the pumpkin growing in the trees.

It reminded me of an ornament.

I found it! The prefect one.

There were so many things to see and do.

There was a nip in the air and then it started to sprinkle so we wrapped it up and headed home. I am grateful that Chuck was able to take the day off and join us. A fun, fun trip!

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
