Ashton's preschool class took a field trip to the Country Mercantile's fall festival and pumpkin patch. It was a gorgeous warm day, and we met up with Ash's best buddies T and L.
First we hopped on the wagon to head out to the pumpkin patch.
" I'm ready to go!"
We were dropped off by a field of itty bittys-- perfect for the preschool kids to carry.
We found the perfect pumpkin.
T and L found great pumpkins too. Then we headed back onto the wagon!
After putting the pumpkins in our cars, we got together for a class photo.
One of his teachers offered to take one of us together.
Then the kids got to climb a straw bale tower and go through the straw bale maze.
Ash got a little lost, but with me shouting directions at him he finally found his way out.
After cookies and juice we headed to the barn for some animal love.
We love the country mercantile! After the field trip was over Ash and I stayed to shop and have lunch. So yummy.
The preschool hosted a pumpkin carving night a few days later where the Dads were supposed to bring the kids and a pumpkin to carve. Unfortunately, Ashton's Dad was far, far, away on a hunting trip. After some deliberating and encouragement from the teachers, I decided to take him. I was sure there would be some other moms there, but nope. Just me. And a bunch of Dads.
Ashton didn't seem to notice. He was just having a blast planning our pumpkin.
He insisted on drawing the face, so I tried to cut out what he drew. I had to improvise a little.
After we carved the kids sang some Halloween songs. It was adorable. So glad I didn't miss it!
