Fall is in full effect here in Fredericksburg! Last week Maddox and I tagged along on Archer's preschool field trip to Snead's Pumpkin Patch. I was a little concerned that it would be a hot mess since it rained all day long the day before.
Here's Zoot. Bored out of his gourd with the rain.
So we went to the library!
We pre-gamed the night before with "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." Archer was glued to the tv/laptop! I would never have guessed he'd be so into it. That night and the next morning, he kept saying that we'd never find a pumpkin small enough to fit in the house. He was really concerned about it no matter how many times I assured him that we'd find a pumpkin small enough that he could carry. I thought he was just being silly until I remembered that all the pumpkins in the movie were the size of the kids! He literally thought that all pumpkins in pumpkin patches were kid sized. What a trip!
Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the patches we're barely muddy and the hayride was perfectly dry. Archer was thrilled that there were so many manageable sized pumpkins a foot. Zoot was just happy to be there. Big wins all around!
Zoot was also obsessed with the tractor. Like, in awe.
It's all fun and games until someone has a meltdown. It's hard being a little brother and having to stay awake 30 minutes past nap-time.
I think preschool pumpkin patch field trips have to be the most adorable thing ever. I'm so happy I was able to attend!
