Today was the first of two trips to the pumpkin patch for us. It was Lauren's turn to go with her preschool class. I am always so amazed at the spectical that is the pumpkin patch in California. It's a simple city block corner, usually all concrete, jazzed up with some hay and tents and transformed into a pumpkin patch. While they are fun to visit, everything usually costs an arm and a leg. Fortunately attending with a field trip tends to keep costs down and kids happy. For a small fee, Lauren got to feed the crazy goats, jump in the jumper and take home a small pumpkin! She really wanted to ride a pony, but that was another $8. Seriously people!! Plus, due to bad weather earlier this week, there was about 200 3-4 year olds running around. Crazy! But we had a great time and Lauren loves her pumpkin!
