A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Anna's preschool class took a trip to Vollmer Farms last week. I signed up as a chaperone and Maddie tagged along. The girls were super excited! (And Anna was especially excited to wear her preschool tshirt to match her friends).

When we arrived, we split up into groups. We learned about chickens and sunflowers and then took a tractor ride (which was Maddie's favorite part) through the fields and around the farm. Then we had free time to play on the playground, jump on the giant in-ground trampoline and "swim" in the corn kernels. Maddie thought it was fun to try to make "snow" angels.

It was a great day that ended with a picnic lunch and the girls picking out a pumpkin (after going to Hillridge in past years I was a little surprised the pumpkins were so small; they were pie pumpkins). On the ride home Anna told me her favorite part of the day was just being with her friends :).
