The Pumpkin Patch - Jeter Farm - Rural Thursday

Cort and Reid took a field trip with their school to the Jeter Farm Pumpkin Patch this year.  That morning, Pierce had a party at school, and got to wear his Halloween costume.  Cort and Reid wanted to wear their costumes too, but their costumes weren't so great for a day at the pumpkin patch.  So we settled on superhero capes and masks instead.


All Reid ever wants to do is drive the tractor.  His teachers said he talks about our blue tractor all the time at preschool.

Thank goodness we didn't get extremely lost in the corn maze this year.  The corn maze at Jeter is much easier than the one we usually do.

More races through the corn maze:
 

Children of the corn:

Reid found an ear of corn, that he carried all through the corn maze, and then promptly fed to a cow, which caused Cort to jump in surprise.  Somehow, I caught this cute moment with my camera.

Finding the perfect pumpkins:

And a dunk in the corn crib finishes out our fun day.
