Livesay Orchards

Caroline's class went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago.  Lone Star always went to the pumpkin patch in Bixby.  Now that we live in Bixby we go to the pumpkin patch in Porter, Oklahoma.  It is called Livesay Orchards, and it was a lot of fun for the kids.

Here is Caroline's class

They first go into a small theater where they watch a video about everything at the farm.  This is also when they learn the rules for the day.

Then it is off to Pumpkin Playland where there are all sorts of things for them to do. 

This is Caroline and Jaselyn leaving the hay maze.  They were fast.  I could not keep up!

Next, it was a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch.

They actually got to pick their pumpkin right off of the vine.

We all piled back onto the hay ride for a trip to the apple orchard.  The kids all got to pick 2 apples off of a tree.

Lunch Time!!!!!

After 2 1/2 hours it was time to head back to the bus.  The kids had a great time.  There was so much for them to do on this trip.  

 * For those that do not know, Jaselyn is Caroline's friend she met on the first day of school.  I was so happy that they stayed in the same class after all of the kindergarten classes were switched around.  A few weeks later we discovered that Jaselyn lives almost directly behind us.  What a small world!  Now they ride the school bus together in the mornings when I am not able to take the girls to school.  I don't think Caroline would have been so agreeable to the whole bus idea if it were not for Jaselyn also being there.  They are so cute together.
