Field Trippin.... Pumpkin Pickin...

To end our unit study on "Farms" and begin our Fall theme, Sarah Beth Academy (What I named our school )... went Pumpkin Picking to a Family Farm.... The kids ages ranged from not quite 3 months to 3rd Grade.... 
 Before the tour began the kids got out some of their energy...
 Braeden ran around in circles...
 The first activity was to go on a tractor pulled wagon ride....
 Ryleigh and Abby in the Wagon...
 Braeden looking at the cornfield as we passed it...
 Andrew... pointing to the cornfield.... 
 The kids were excited to pick their own pumpkin off of the vine...
 They were also allowed to each pick radishes...
 Ryleigh with one of hers....
 Braeden....in the pumpkin field...
 The kids also got to see newborn bunnies... still in their next in the ground...
 The kids got to learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin.... 
 and that a pumpkin is a fruit.... (go figure!)
 and that the ridge on the outside of the pumpkin is called a rib...
 They also learned about the parts of corn...
  Ryleigh listening....
 Picking String Beans....
 At the end they got to play in the very awesome playground... here Braeden is on an actual Fire Truck (Slide off the back)...
  Ryleigh in the giant pumpkin...
 Braeden climbing up a giant stack of hay... he did not want to come down... I actually had to go up and get him...
