I don't have much of a weekly wrap up post this week, but we did get to the pumpkin patch, so we'll just call this the weekly wrap-up--our visit to the pumpkin patch!
We had 2 opportunities to go with 2 different groups of homeschoolers this last week. One didn't work for April's schedule, so we chose the 2nd one. It was kind of a bummer because we didn't really know anyone from the 2nd group, so the kids weren't thrilled about not having any friends to run around with. That kind of set the tone for the day, so I had a lot of pictures like this...
and this... (see the frumpy faces?) The only one excited was Alex.
Although he was rather grumpy later on in the day too!
I don't know if it was just the friend thing, or if they are just plain bored of Bauman's, but it wasn't all peaches and cream at the pumpkin patch.
We did have some fun moments though. We always enjoy seeing the fun haystacks throughout the place. There were tons more cute ones that I didn't even get pictures of.
We took a group shot, but since we didn't really know anyone else from the group I opted to get one of just my kiddos. They did a little better for this picture.
At least someone was smiling! Or something...
Despite all the grumpiness there was much fun to be had. Lots of mazes to run through, and yes the kids did laugh and smile at some points during the whole outing.
We spotted at least 2 ninja turtles.
We slid on some really fun slides.
We got excited for our cool colorful corn.
We took a thrill ride on a super fast hay ride.
And, got pictures to prove it!
It was a fun day at the pumpkin patch. I think it's time to venture out to some new patches though. I think my kiddos have "been there, done that" with our most local place. Time for something new next year!
