Fall Fun!

We took some of the school kids on a field trip yesterday, and we all had a lot of fun. This is always one of my favorite field trips. I love Fall, and I enjoy looking at all the pretty decorations.
We were greeted by this guy. Isn't he cute??

First, we took a hayride to the pumpkin patch so we could all get a pumpkin. The kids ran all over the field to find the 'perfect' one!

Then they went through the maze. That's not one of my favorite parts of the trip, but they seem to like it. I just get lost!

After the maze, they went on the pedal tractors. Here's Katie getting ready to ride. :)

My husband had a good time too. :)

Finally, we stopped off at the gift shop before we went home. They always have such pretty and yummy things for sale. I don't usually buy a lot here, but I do enjoy looking!

The school year has started off well. I stay very busy with it, so it's nice to have a 'fun day' every now and then.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. :)

Take care,

  8. I'm sure the kids loved going on a trip to the pumpkin you I enjoy looking at all the crafts that people enjoy making.....I got a kick out of the barn with its face. Trish

  9. Hey Melanie!

    I just love the hay man that greeted you when you got there! I'd love to do one of those in our yard. We do have the round bales of hay out in our field right now. It is just too cute!

    My son would love those tractors! I better not let him see those or he will want one! lol He loves riding things like that.

    Looks like everyone had a great time!

    Have a Great Day!

  10. now that looks like fun! I bet it was a blast looking at the kids trying to find the right pumpkin, Melanie. I'm with you on corn mazes, I'm always getting lost too; all the stalks look the same :) I'm usually the one that is trying to find the short cuts out of them. glad you had a fun day and that the school year is going well!


  11. Hi Melanie I see your daughter is the same age as Morgan my gd. That is a great age, but wish Morgan didn't have the cell phone her mom gave her. It's been a bit of a problem since she is texting all day long.
    Your trip looks fabulous. I plan on going to the pumpkin farm with my daughter and boyfriend and kids soon. But we have to wait till the end of October it's a bit warm yet. We have chilly nights and mornings and the afternoons are warm.
    Looking at your photos makes me want a apple pie or caramel apple!
    Your husband does look like he is having a lot of fun. Good for him and Katie.
    Have a super fun fall Wednesday and may it be a day of great blessings from the good Lord above.
    Big hugs

  12. That is a really nice pumpkin patch! We have to take quite a drive to get to one that nice. It looks like everyone had a great time.
