Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

Today, Gunnar had his first field trip of his kindergarten career.
They were headed to the pumpkin patch at Maris Farms.
It was so exciting to ride the bus. He was thrilled to be in Owen's group and was super happy to sit by him on the bus. They arrived at the pumpkin patch and had to listen to the spiel.
Gunnar got to sit between Miranda and McKayla. NICE!

This was our little group...
Gunnar, McKayla, and Owen. BOO!! Tractor races...Gunnar and Ayden

Playing in the corn! Gunnar's favorite part.Cow ride!

Feeding the goats and the corn maze.

To get to the corn maze we had to walk by the pumpkin patch. The kids were already eying which pumpkins they wanted. They had rows upon rows of beautiful pumpkins.
However, after we made it to the end of the maze we had to follow the sign to the "field trip pumpkin patch"...
Are you kidding me?
This is what the kids had to choose from. What a Rip off! What are they supposed to do with these and what did my $12.50 pay for? Certainly not a pumpkin. Hmmm!Mrs. Sharp's kindergarten class.Beautiful Mt. Rainier I am so glad I got to go to the pumpkin patch with Gunnar. Though, the pumpkins were a bit of a disappointment we still had a wonderful time.

Super cute photos!! Looks like they had a blast, I think it is funny that field trup pumpkins are always smaller but those are by far the smallest I have ever seen!!! You can get those for lik e.50 cents at the store!!!
