Preschool Pumpkin Patch

Today was Ben's preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch.  I really like how his school organizes the field trip.  The cost is covered by the school but the parent's bring their own children and then after a group hay ride and group pic you are free to stay as long or as little as you'd like.  And you are in charge of your own kid.
Diving into the corn kernal pit. 
It's amazing the difference between last years trip and this years.  Last year Ben was a very shy, quiet little guy who wouldn't talk to any of his fellow preschoolers.  This year I was often left in the dust as he was running all around the farm with his buddies.
Such silly fun friends. 
I also thought about last year, how Jackson was still in my belly.  And this year enjoying the pumpkin patch along with his big brother- especially the wagon ride.
We went to G&M Farms again in Livermore.  They have a corn maze (of course), a corn kernal sandbox (original and so cool), a  few animals including a mini donkey named Taco.  Awesome.  A playground, a spooky barn, and a large pumpkin patch.  Ben picked a pumpkin for himself and a smaller one for baby Jacky.
We stayed for about two hours, lingering long after our fellow schoolmates left with our good friends the Banta's- Shannon, Beau & Bright, and out other little friend Grady.  The weather was amazing- although I'm still looking forward to cooler weather- dang CA.  Just a fun day on the farm.
I heart this picture very much. 
Till next time.  Which will probably be in a couple weeks- gotta go again with Daddy.
