A few days ago I told you about how we managed to incorporate schoolwork into our day when we had family visiting from out of town. During their stay, we managed to squeeze in a couple field trips, and today I want to tell you about our pumpkin picking field trip at Stuckmeyer Farms!
While my in-laws were visiting last week we decided to include everyone in our families annual pumpkin-picking tradition and all headed to Stuckmeyer Farms (wearing shorts in October none-the-less… whaaa?!). There we decided which pumpkin would make it back to our front porch for this year’s trick or treat festivities. It was a tough decision to make, but after looking at every single pumpkin comparing size, color, and the look of the stem, we finally made our pick.
After picking out our pumpkin we spent some time learning the life cycle of a pumpkin, how apples grow, and also how bee’s make honey.
Then the girls had fun playing, taking silly pictures, and getting lost in the corn maze. We didn’t stick around for too long because it was hot (again, it is October isn’t it? I mean not that I’m complaining but…).
Now here’s to hoping I can muster up the energy for pumpkin carving before Halloween gets here!
Do you have any annual Halloween or Fall traditions? Please comment and share them with the rest of us. I’m a sucker for family traditions and would love to hear some of yours!
