A lovely day at the Pumpkin Farm

Allysa’s pre-school had a field trip today to our local pumpkin farm, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.

The kids had fun playing different pumpkin themed games, talking about the different leaves, eating apples. They’re favorite had to be running like mad though the hay maze,

(I seriously need to build one of these in my back yard.) I loved the look on the kids faces once they figured out the maze, Allysa would say “YES! I figured it out!” After she would find her way out, even if it was her 20thousandith time through, she would still say it!

Socks in the wild

I finished my first maple sugar swirl sock! The second sock saw a little bit of action at the pumpkin patch, ok. I knit 16 sts. 1/4 of a row while I was there… anywho,
whatcha get?

A few things followed us home, I had to get some gourds and Allysa helped me pick out some neat ones! We also bought some golden delicious apples (mmm, delicious!) elderberry jelly, and a wee little pumpkin. (and now I see that window reeeally needs a good scrubbing. Ew!) It was a wonderful day, and the drive back home was lovely

Have to run, Corra wants to be a cat for Halloween and I have to finish cutting out the lining to her costume. 3 days, 56 minutes to Rhinbeck. I can’t wait!

  1. That reminds me, I need to try and squeeze in a trip to our local pumpkin patch when I get back next week! They always match The Squid’s hair color so well!!! Ha! Your sock looks lovely laying there.

    See you soon!!!

  2. Love love love the colors of those socks! And the fall landscape too. Jealous of that and Rhinebeck.

    I’m with you on the mommy obligation overload. Pick and choose and feel no guilt or they’ll have you on every committee and chaperoning every event. Hope little one’s GI track is feeling better.

    Finally, thanks so much for the YouTube song link. Made my day!
