Pumpkin Patch fun

Thursday was Sierra's class trip to the pumpkin patch so we made it into a family event as they were going to the same patch we go to every year near our house. It's called Rondriso Farms.
First everyone got to feed the cows

Then we listened to the farmer talk about the crops they grow, and how they care for their livestock.

Aayla, Sierra and Sierra's best friend Sophia sitting together

 After the farmer spoke to us everyone got to make a pumpkin craft and learn about the different pumpkins and gourds the farm grows.

Sierra would rather be in the pumpkin patch
 Sierra loves the story The Bumpy Little Pumpkin 

by Margery Cuyler, illustrated by Will Hillenbrand so she had a special liking for this bumpy little gourd!
She really liked the bumpy gourds
 Then they has a hunt for pumpkins in the yard while we waited for the tractors to be ready for the hayride to the pumpkin patch.

Look there's pumpkins!!!
 Then it was off to choose a pumpkin...

Aayla carried this for a brief moment and then decided
 she needed a smaller one :)

We had a great afternoon at the pumpkin off to play with our pumpkins.
