The Field Trip and My Trick-or-Treaters
We have had a busy, but fun week. On Tuesday, I went to a farm with my son's kindergarten. It was a perfect day. The sun was shining, it was 70 degrees, and the sky was a beautiful blue. We had a picnic next to a pond, went on a hayride, picked pumpkins in a pumpkin patch, and enjoyed various activities set up in some of the barns (some were educational, some were just plain fun). This is a picture of my Favorite Boy playing in the pretend farmer's market.


One of my favorite parts of the day was the hayride. As we were riding around the farm, the cows came right up to the wagon. I couldn't believe they were coming so close; but, I found out why. The farmer threw out a few pumpkins for the cows to eat, smashing them on the ground in the process. You can imagine the gleeful cheers that erupted from the children when the pumpkins smashed and the cows ran for them. The cows obviously know where to head for a treat!




You can see a few calves in the background of the picture. Several of the cows have given birth in recent weeks, so we saw a handful of babies tagging along behind their mommies.

Last night, we donned the costumes and went trick-or-treating for a little while. We still had our regular church services last night, so we didn't trick-or-treat as long as usual. The kids had a ball, and I think they enjoyed talking about trick-or-treating with their church buddies almost as much as the actual trick-or-treating. Here are my Snow White and my Tennessee Titan.



After wearing the Snow White costume at Disney World, around the house, and for multiple Halloween activities, I think my Best Girl has made good use of the gift my aunt gave her for Christmas last year (Thanks, Aunt Dessa!).

Whew! We have been so busy lately; I think I am ready to slow down. Of course, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here soon. Maybe we'll slow down in January!
