A Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

The twins had a blast during their field trip to Jeter Farm this year. 
They really loved petting the goats.  I still hope that one day we can have a milk goat.

The twins had fun climbing all over and running around the farm.

We also did the corn maze.  I love that their corn maze isn't too difficult.  I really hate being lost in the corn maze.

Course a big hit of the day is the slide.

You should've seen the drama that unfolded when all these four year olds discovered a daddy long legs in the middle of the slide.  Too funny.

Luckily, the teacher herded it to the other side, and sliding was resumed again.
Bittersweet, to realize this was our last year for a field trip to the pumpkin patch.  Next year the twins will be in kindergarten.  I suppose we'll try to visit on the weekend at some point.

It looks like a wonderful time, daddy longlegs drama and all.

That slide looks like fun, they are the kind of kids that can have a good time about anywhere though. They aren't glued to electronic devices for fun. You will have weekends and teacher work days.

Sweet photos. The boys really seem to take to any new adventure. I love that tractor. I'd have to play on it too! :-)

Beware the goats! I had two black nubians. I really liked them, but if there are more destructive creatures on the face of the earth I've never run into them. I eventually had to give them to an old guy who kept all kinds of animals for companions. He promised he wouldn't sell them to anyone (Mexicans eat them in this part of the mountains), and he kept his promise. We called them "the goat buddies". They liked to sleep under the porch, down on the ground level and to this day we still call the security lights down there "the goat lights."

We picked up the cheapest and biggest pumpkins ever at our out of town farm visit this year. That was my highlight.

Cute post... and this is the first time I have noticed the difference in the boys' hair... one straight and the other much curlier... Cute guys!!

I know too well the feeling of a bittersweet fall. I wish there was a way to hang on a bit longer to these golden days:)

It looks like the best possible kind of field trip-daddy long legs and all:) Thanks for the wonderful pictures of your wonderful boys:)

How fun for your boys and all the kiddos. I'm still a corn maze virgin....not something they do in Florida. :)
The slide looks fun; I would have tried it once the spider was removed.

Grandma Bonnie said...

I have some sweet memories at the pumpkin patch and the apple orchard. I am sure you will find some time to visit next year. It would not seem like Halloween with out a visit to a pumpkin patch.
