Pumpkin Patch Field Trip!

Today, Kathryn's class had a field trip to the McGrath Pumpkin Patch in Ventura. Mommy went along as a helper and so brother got to go too :) They listened to someone talk about the differences between squash, gourds and pumpkins. We took pictures with the scarecrow and big pumpkin. They checked out a few animals while they waited to board the hayride. Rode the hayride out to the field to pick out their pumpkins. Josh's was small with a long, twisty stem. Kathryn's was a little bigger but slightly lopsided. After arriving back to the pickup area, it was time to go. Kathryn went back to school for her pizza party and Mommy and Josh went home to rest. Such a tiring but fun day!
