The four of us moms know each other through a local MOPS chapter, and today our MOPS group took its annual trip to Cox Farms. The Fall Festival there features hayrides, face painting, a pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, farm demonstrations, a farmer's market, etc... We decided to use the MOPS outing as a class field trip, as well:
Mums and gourds
My 2yo, Miss D, Miss D's 2yo, my 4yo, Miss D's 4yo
Me with my three girls
Two brave girls petting a very large cow. This nice lady showed the girls how to milk a cow.
The piglets were a big hit
More mums and about a million pumpkins
The kids saw cows and calves, pigs and piglets, goats and kids, hens and chicks, rabbits, bison, long-horn cattle, and tons of other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting to mention. We were treated to apples and apple cider from the farm, and we each got our pick of sugar pumpkins on our way out. The weather was perfect - a little overcast and mid-70s - and we all had a really nice time. Back to the classroom tomorrow!
