Pumpkin Patch

Picasso Pumpkins. SO SO SO SO cute. I am just kicking myself for not taking a picture of all of them.

I also cut out letters and had the kids spell their names on the back. Can you say 'cross-curriculum?' I can!

The hay maze was a huge hit. It was perfect for the little ones. I was so happy we chose to go to a smaller pumpkin patch and not to an overwhelming crazy one.
The farmer gave us a great little lecture about all the different varieties of pumpkins, read a story and answered questions. I usually have intense anxiety about field trips but this one was perfect. Just perfect.
Best snack ever. Oranges, carved as jack-o-lanterns and stuffed with fruit. Strawberries, grapes, pineapple, yum! My Lily has asked to make these almost everyday since. I saw something online where they carved bell peppers like a jack and stuffed them with meat, veggies, mushrooms, etc. Maybe she would go for that? Either way, it will be fun.
