Hailey's field trip to the pumpkin patch

Hailey went on her first field trip to the pumpkin patch. It was cold and rainy in the morning and we thought for sure it was cancelled. But we drove to there and it stopped raining. First the kids visited the animals and then went into the barn to listen to a story about pumpkins. They asked the children what kind of things we make with pumpkins. There were the usual anwsers like pumpkin pie and pumpkin cookies, but buggie's first thought was pumpkin ice cream and yelled it out. She is very much her mothers daughter :) After talking about pumpkins, they made a scarecrow and named it John Wayne. Then it was time for the hayride to go and look for pumpkins. Hailey wanted a baby pumpkin so we searched and searched for the perfect baby pumpkin in a field of large pumpkins. We found one and took the ride back and then had our snack which was Haileys week for snack. I had made these awesome mini "carmel" apples that were really covered with peanut butter and sprinkles. The kids loved them and the parents raved over what a neat idea it was. These are the days I love being a mommy. We had so much fun on Hailey's first field trip.
