In the beginning of October Emmett got to go on his first field trip. Stoney Ridge Farms! From the day the paper came home from school he was ready to go. We got really lucky and the day we went was a Friday and it was beautiful. Gage’s favorite phrase the whole week following was, “pumpkin patch,” and he would just walk around repeating it to himself. The boys had a great day together and with preschool friends.
The next week we got to go to Kay’s pumpkin patch, which has been a tradition for us for the last 4 years. Again, the weather was great and their were plenty of pumpkins to choose from. Kay is Gage’s nursery leader at our church and every year she has all of her little nursery friends out to the pumpkin patch. She entertains us all with her many goats that we get to feed, sandwiches and homemade cider from her own apples and a garden full of produce for the pickin! This year we went home with pumpkins for both the boys, beets, carrots, potatoes, and some of her homemade grape jelly. We love this lady so much and we are always spoiled out at her home.
And just because I am a sucker for a good throwback:
This is Adelle and Emmett, October 2011, at Stoney Ridge for Adelle’s preschool trip. Same expressions, but so little. How do they grow up so fast.
