Pumpkin Patch

On Thursday we went to the Pumpkin Patch with Reese's pre-school class. It was a wonderful organic farm in the Puyallup Valley called Terry's Berries. We had a lovely tour guide named "Farmer John" who showed us the ins and outs to farming. Reese informed us that she is ready for us to have a garden and chickens. Yes, that is right, me the city girl is getting chickens! Jason and I are going to take the winter to get our back yard all ready including a coupe and shed built. As well as the garden beds prepped. So needless to say, we all learned a lot at the pumpkin patch this year!
All the kids loved the mud puddles! I would only let mine walk through the thick muddy ones! I am not one for dirty! Good thing I only have 2 girls:) Anyways... here are a few pics from our 1st field trip...

Reese picked corn, mmmmm yummy!

Daddy helping Reese pick some yummy apples! We even brought some home!

And the pumpkin! She picked a great one! Just her size and nice and round...

And finally a snack with her whole class before we left. What a great time we had! Even perfect weather:)
