The Pumpkin Patch
Last Friday we went on a Joy School field trip to a local pumpkin patch. Maddie and Jeni were very excited to be able to go as well since they were out of school on Fall Break.
First we let the kids run around in a hay maze. They had so much fun! Then we got a cart and picked out the perfect pumpkin, which was hard to find in 8 acres of pumpkins! Then we found some really scary witches... sat with some scarecrows... and spooked some ghosts!
It was a lot of fun and now we have lots of pumpkins on our front steps. When we got home the kids had so much fun painting the small pumpkins. They are really looking forward to carving the rest of the pumpkins except for a white one we found that we are planning on cooking up in a pie after it's done it's tour of duty as a Halloween decoration. Yeah for multi-taskers!
I'm a stay-at-home Mom (or stay-in-the-car as the case may be!) for my five children. I have four daughters and one son and a wonderful husband who always keeps life interesting. I'm trying to overcome the "Super Mom" syndrome and some days I definetly do better than others.
