1st Field Trip

Yesterday Gabe's preschool class went to Gull Meadow Farms. This was Gabe's first field trip and I was so excited to be able to take the morning off of work so that I could go with him. His class is a pretty good size class so the parents that were going were told that we would have to drive due to lack of space. But when we got there that day there was extra room on the bus so I was able to ride with him. This was so much fun. This is us on the bus ride there.We started off the morning with a wagon ride that took us out to pick our own apples. This was a first even for me. I've never picked apples before. We had lots of fun filling our basket. The apples were big and YUMMY!

The lady in blue to the left is from the farm. She told the kids some fun facts about apples and how they keep the deer away from the little apple trees. All of the apples that fall on the ground they leave for the wildlife to eat.

My sweet Gabe on the wagon ride back. It was so cold outside and we were happen to be able to get inside out of the wind.

After the wagon ride we got to have some cider and donuts. Then it was off to play. The kids had a great time on the giant slide and the hay maze.

Gabe wasn't all that interested in having his picture taken here but I now have all of our kids standing in front of this apple!
And last but not least he got to pick out a small pumpkin to take home.
