Pumpkin Patch

Molly's school went on a field trip to a pumpkin patch last week and we had such a good time.

Cooper, Isaac, Molly, Porter, and Benjamin. Her buddies from school and church.

This pumpkin patch was on a working farm so they taught the kids a lot about how the farm runs. It was really interesting. After learning that you can tell the color of a chickens eggs by their ear color,
Molly and Porter collected eggs from the fake chickens and then washed them off and packed them up. 

Then they were taught that hay was for eating and straw was used for bedding and they needed to clean the straw in the cow stall.

 This was a cool hay bailer toy. Not a great picture though.

They got to milk a pretend cow that had very life like, working udders!

Then it was off on a wagon ride to go pick a pumpkin from the patch.

After we got our pumpkins we headed back to the barn where they were able to pet a goat, mini horse, chicken, sheep, and rabbit. She loved it!

All in all it was a fun day. The pumpkin patch was pretty pathetic due to the drought over the summer, but it didn't put a damper on the trip at all.

Trunk or Treat

Here is the little fairy that came to our house yesterday. 

Her favorite part was the glitter all over her face. My favorite part of her costume was her glitter shoes I made by mixing glitter with mod podge and painting a pair of sunday shoes. It was a cheap pair of glitter shoes and by combining three colors of glitter I was able to get the color I wanted.
