Yesterday the Kindergarten classes went on a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch in Hargis. We had a great time, but I am still worn out. We went on a hike through the woods, took a hayride, watched the teachers roast hotdogs and marshmallows over a fire, ate the hotdogs and marshmallows (along with some other food), went through the actual pumpkin patch and saw the pumpkins that were growing on the vine – from little baby pumpkins to great humongous ones, visited the petting zoo, and sat in a tee-pee to listen to story, and then hiked back to where we started and picked out a pumpkin to take home with us. And all of it before noon! Here is our day in pictures.
Part of our group and the field where most of the activities took place. Look how blue the sky was. It was a gorgeous day!
The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
Petting the pony/baby horse (depending on who was petting it.)
A view of the lake through the trees on our hike back.
Beautiful butterfly on some beautiful flowers.
And last but definitely not least – Harris and his pumpkin. When we got home, he was so excited to go put it out on the front porch. He has shown everybody who has been to our house his pumpkin and the spot he picked for it.
