"Friday Field Trip" - The Pumpkin Patch

Today Sara and I met up with some dear friends (Katie, Mason, Garrett, Allison, and Kyle) at Hodges Dairy Pumpkin Patch. Immediately, Sara wanted to pick out a pumpkin from the prepicked ones .....

until she saw the wagons and realized that there was more to come. (with a little prompting from me and her friends). At first she jumped in the wagon and wanted to be pulled..
Well that lasted all of about 2 minutes when she saw all the other kids pulling their wagons. "Miss Independent", as she is being called a lot lately, decided that she needed to "I do it" (as she would say). a.k.a do it herself!

All the kids had a great time in the pumpkin patch trying to find the perfect pumpkin. I think each one of the kids must have picked 3, 4, or maybe 5 pumpkins before the perfect one made the trip in the wagon to go home.

Following the pumpkin patch we were able to 'visit' with some of the animals at the farm. There were cows, horses, chickens, goats, and pigs.

After the pumpkin patch we headed to Don Padro's for lunch. Gotta love those chicken fajitas at lunch for only $6.00. All in all it was a great day, and us mom's had a great time chatting and enjoy each other's company too. Thanks ladies, and I'm looking forward to the next "Friday Field Trip"; where will the next stop be........?????" Anyone else interested in joining us, let me know.

(It was a great day weather wise too, it actually felt like fall. Cool enough to have a jacket to start the day, and warm enough to leave it behind before the day ends. I love fall!)
