Pumpkin Patch Field trip

The biggest catfish I have ever seen!


Madison watching as they feed fish









I think he was hiding from all the kids.






Look at those cute little faces!









It's never a good thing when you have a warning sign on your fence.












I loved the goats!










Riding the barrel swing.












Madison and her pumpkin

Last month Madison got to go on her first field trip as a Busy Little Beaver. The trip was to the pumpkin patch. The parents all got to go and some of the grandparents also went. Madison's Mimi was able to come along with us on this trip. This was Mimi's first trip to the pumpkin patch but mine and Madison's second time.
The pumpkin patch is in the middle of nowhere so we got lost a few times trying to find our way. When we finally got to the pumpkin patch we got to watch as they fed the catfish. Those were some of the biggest catfish I have ever seen. They next stop along the way was to see all of the farm animals on the farm. Madison kept asking me when we were going to be on the field trip and I tried to explain to her that this was the field trip. She thinks a field trip is a hayride. I guess because the only field trip she had ever been on up till this point was a hayride on a farm.
Anyway, after we looked at the animals the kids got to go on the cow train followed by a trip to the pumpkin patch on a hayride. After we picked out the perfect pumpkins the children got to have free play on the farm playground. I think that free play was the favorite part of the field trip for most of the kids.
We had a great time on the field trip to the pumpkin patch and we are so glad that Mimi got to go along with us. I can hardly wait to see where our next trip takes us!
