Pumpkin Patch and Tractor Rides

Monday afternoon found Bonnie, Chas, and I off on a pumpkin patch field trip.  The kids were so excited and could barely contain themselves on the way there. 

 We hadn't even entered the pumpkin patch place but they found a big pumpkin and felt that they had to sit by it. 

As soon as the teacher showed up we were headed off to the tractor, Chas was the most excited about this.  Mostly because anything with wheels are just the coolest at the moment.

Here they are waiting to be pulled by the tractor.  The ride was nice and long with a few bumps along the way.  Exactly just what they needed, especially since we were all lifted off at one point when we hit an especially big bump.

Then we were told how to get the pumpkins off the vines and they were off.

Bonnie and her friend Eva were off on their search too.  They followed a wheel path left by the tractor.  The search for the perfect pumpkin was on.

They found the pumpkins they liked and then promptly gave them to me to carry.  I didn't mind, I was really just enjoying watching them have so much fun.  But that wasn't the end of our trip, oh no, there was so much more fun to have.

Then Bonnie and Chas were off running in the kid's size corn maze.  I'm not kidding, they were really running.

They did the maze a few more times and then discovered the tractor tires they were allowed to play with. 

It's safe to say they had an awesome time.  I'd even say they were a little tuckered by the end.

I think I would be as tired as the kids are after a day at the pumpkin patch and maze. In fact, I almost need a nap just from watching them.
