Oma’s Pumpkin Patch: Dayla (and Mom’s) First Field Trip

I had no idea what to expect when being a part of Dayla’s first field trip with her class. I had heard about this pumpkin patch years ago and I had always really wanted to go. It is really a dairy farm where they teach kids all about the farm and let them climb a cotton seed mountain and climb on farm equipment..and they throw a few pumpkins in the mix too. I am usually hesitant to accompany Dayla on things such as this because she behaves so much better without me there, but I threw caution to the wind, tossed out my pride, and decided to go. I am so glad I did! This pumpkin patch/dairy farm was a TON of fun!

The class picture when we first got there is below. Everyone smiling and ready for the day…and Dayla? Not in a picture taking mood quite yet. 😉

They start the tour off by teaching you how pumpkins grow:

Then everyone gets a hay ride to tour the farm and meet the cows:

After the hay ride, there is non-stop games and fun to partake in. Learning to milk a cow, to sliding down cotton seed mountain, a hay maze, a petting zoo, farm equipment to climb on, a play ground to play on, darts, water games, shuffle board, duck pond, and so much more!

Right before it is time to leave, all the kids got to take home a pumpkin…any pumpkin they wanted! Of course all the pumpkins were pretty much the exact same, but the kids delighted in being able to pick their favorite; “the best” one.

And we ended the day with another class picture. Note how exhausted all the kids look. Yeah, it was a that much fun there! (Also I can’t help but notice that Dayla is the tallest girl in her class and how well you can see that here in this picture)

Yay Oma’s! I can’t wait to visit again next year!
