Luke's First Field Trip

This morning I got to take Luke to his first field trip with his class.  It was at a small pumpkin patch in the historical part of town, and was oh so fun.  Tula watched the girls for me, so I was able to have some one-on-one time with my boy!  We both really enjoyed it. Here is his TK class "normal" and "silly". 

My settings were all screwed up on my camera, but I still thought this shot was cool.  Luke had a run in with a tree in our backyard yesterday, so he is sporting a pretty nasty wound.  Nothing surprises me anymore with this rough and tumble dude.

His good buddy Bryce.

Decorating his pumpkin.

Making butter.  This kid does not like butter and wouldn't taste it.  CRA-ZY!  Who doesn't like butter?!

His friends, Ben and Lucy.

Face painting.

They got to listen to a story read to them in the old schoolhouse.  It was very neat sitting in the old desks.

Hay maze.

The blacksmith lesson.  Luke really enjoyed this.

Posing with Ella and some more friends.

He told me his favorite part of the trip was this swing.  It would rock pretty high, and I don't think it was intended for a bunch of 5 year olds to operate.  They all loved it though!

Looking into the oldest house in McKinney.  They told us it is haunted....ooooo

Lunch time on the porch.

I had so much fun spending time with my little man.  He is such a gift!

Pumpkin Patch Fun

We ventured up to Celina's Big Orange Pumpkin Farm on Saturday, and had a great time.  There were animals to feed, a train and hay ride, hot dogs, and a hay maze.  The kids had a great time.  Nonnie was able to go with us, which made it even more special.  This was our first year to go, and we will definitely be back.

A beautiful field of pumpkins was originally in the background of this picture, but right as the picture was taken, the hayride pulled up.  Haha!  Not quite what we were going for. =)

The kids loved feeding the goats, and Audrey we especially into it. Nonnie was a great helper!

Savannah was a little wide eyed with these creatures.

The big kids enjoyed the hay maze.

While Luke went back for more maze action, Audrey wanted to feed the lambs.  I never knew their eyes were so freaky!

Not the best picture, but look how cute the boys are.  Two of a kind!

Luke loved the cows.

Savannah is officially walking.  She has been able to for awhile now, but still mostly crawled.  I would say over the past week, she has definitely transitioned into fully walking.  She wanted to walk everywhere at the pumpkin patch.

We waited in a pretty long line for the train ride, and it was fun.  Savannah was very interested in everything, and then when we started moving she went into a trance, kind of like she does on the boat.

Luke was pretending to be asleep.  Not sure why!

The hay ride.

Again, not the family picture we had planned.  One kid over it, one happy to be here, and one kid being choked.  I love it!
