He seemed particularly close to one little girl. Every time the group sat down somewhere Z and this little girl would wind up off to the side together. They were pretty cute.When he saw me taking a picture of his preschool flirting he called me out on it, "Mom, you don't need to take a picture right now. We are just talking."
I didn't get a lot of pictures of the pumpkin patch because the batteries in my camera started dying as soon as I took the first picture. I know , I need to work on the whole preparedness thing. I promise I will try to do better in the future. Don't worry though, I did manage to get a few good shots in.
The pumpkin patch is on an operational farm. As a result, we got to see all kinds of cool animals. Super Z's favorite was the goat on the goat bridge. I am not sure why the goats have a bridge over their shed, but they do. And it is an impressive sight.
The hayride probably lasted about an hour. The farmer would stop the tractor every now and again to talk to us about the animals. Mostly Z and I just enjoyed each others company during the ride. He told me a wonderful story about a Super Hero that lives on a farm, Super Rooster Boy. I am telling you, the boy is going to make me a million dollars one day.
On one stop a giant cow walked right up to us. I am no city slicker, but I am telling you this is the biggest cow that I have ever seen. Her name is Molly. Apparently she has lived on the farm for many years. She walked right up to the trailer full of four year olds. Molly had no fear.
Of course the reason for the fearlessness quickly became obvious. Old Molly is no fool, she has Farmer Boyd figured out. We got a up close view of him spoiling his Old Molly.
Finally we arrived at the pumpkin patch. They had an area roped off for the kids. The pumpkins were already cut. They were just laying around. Each child got to pick their very own pumpkin to take back. This is a shot of Super Z with his pumpkin of choice. This is also the very last picture that my camera would take.
After we picked and bagged our pumpkins, the children got to play in a cornbox ( think sandbox with loose corn), on rope swings, and in a hay bale maze. It was awesome. Completely awesome.
Super Z's first field trip was every bit as good as I hoped it would be. I can't wait until we get to do it again.
