Our Day at the Pumpkin Patch


My Little "Punkins"


We took a homeschool field trip to the Pumpkin Patch the other day. The kids had so much fun! There were classes offered there to teach the children various facts about pumpkins. How they are planted, how they grow, the different sizes, shapes, and colors, and even how they are harvested and shipped across the country. Very educational and very enjoyable.

Here are some great pics I got of the kids there:










And then, once we got home, the kids wanted to decorate their pumpkins, so we repeated our fun activity from the other day, and I let them paint their pumpkins out on the lanai.





Their decorations made a lovely addition to our entryway. Of course, I have to admit that little H smearing her piggy nose on the screen definitely adds to the cuteness... don't you think? :o)
