Bishop's Pumkin Farm!

I was able to go with Cooper on his first field trip this year. All the Kindergarten and K/1 classes went and I'm betting that everyone had a great time.
Firstly, it was great weather. Our first storm of the season was moving in so it was cool and cloudy but not cold or windy.
Secondly, we were going to a pumpkin farm in Wheatland, maybe 15 miles away, that has a miniature train for the kids to ride, a hay wagon to take them out to the pumpkin patch to choose their own pumpkin (no restriction on size), barnyard animals to observe and interact with, a great play area, including a real railroad car, and the most delicious smelling bake store! Here are some of the highlights! IMG_0053s

Getting ready to get on the field trip bus with his friend David. Being a chaperone I was in charge of 4 kids. Cooper, David and two of the kindergarten girls, Victoria and Vanessa. (You'll see pictures of them coming up)

Here's Cooper inside the real train car. It was dark and dirty and scary in there but some of the kids spent 30 min straight inside that car.

This is one of my favorite pictures. I remember many years ago when we came here with Cooper and taking this same picture. I wish I had it on hand to compare but we'll just have to compare future pictures with this one.

First graders on the train. It took us on a trip around part of the pumpkin patch, some horses' fields, a walnut grove, and many scarecrows and old farm machinery.

Pumpkin picking! I'm so glad that I was able to spend this time with Cooper. He's such a sweet boy and I'm just thrilled that he's growing up to be such a fine young man.
