a few weeks ago, i visited the pumpkin patch for the 482nd time in my life. but this year, wes and reed went together, so i only had to go to one pumpkin patch. can i get a high five?!? this particular farm is my favorite one, so it was fun. it's a real farm. you cut your pumpkin off the vine. it's not tossed out there in the field for you to pick up and peel the wal-mart sticker off of before carving. true story. they have fun slides, and mazes. and they have really good food. i do love some mexican cornbread, and when they grind their own cornmeal to fix their mexcian cornbread....well....you just can't get much better than that!
we had everything from 4 year olds to first graders on this trip. since the classes were divided up between activities, wes (and his class) was kind enough to let reed pretend to be a first grader with them so i could get pictures of the two of them. he was a great big brother on this trip!
the pumpkin patch field trips stop after the first grade. i don't know what i'm going to do once reed makes it to second grade! i might have to drive to fulton anyway just for old times sake and to get a pumpkin. if nothing else, that mexican cornbread will make the trip worthwhile! :)
