Pumpkin Patch

Bryce and I enjoyed his first field trip to the pumpkin patch on October 14th. Bryce was so excited. We drove to the pumpkin patch with Aunt Becky and Emma. Bryce and Emma sat in the back talking and chatting up a storm. They were so funny to listen to. When we arrived at the pumpkin patch, Bryce was so excited to go see his teachers and board the hayride. During the hayride, the driver pretended to run out of gas. He chose 4 children to go to the "scary" house and knock and ask for some gas. Emma was chosen to go tip toe down to the building. Bryce and I watched as the children approached the house. They knocked and heard a knock back. Then a little old lady came out and joined us on the hayride. She shared the story, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, which is one of my favorite Halloween stories. Afterwards, we continued until we arrived at the patch. Bryce had a tough time choosing a pumpkin, in fact, it wasn't until his teacher came over, that he chose a pumpkin... She asked how it was going and I said that he wasn't happy, because he was trying to find a "big one." Then she said, "How about this one Bryce?" He was very happy with it and the decision was done. Too funny. I am used to being the teacher, not the mom. We then went through a corn maze. We had so much fun!!!
