Taylor's first field trip

Taylor had her very first field trip today. She had a blast. Her 2 best friends are twins (Jayla and Janae) were paired up with me as their chaperon. (I thought chaperon had an e on the end, but auto correct told me different... looks funny to me. Moving on...) Taylor was CRAZY excited about riding on a school bus and it didn't disappoint. Holy cow that bus driver was nuts. Did she not realize that these kids are barely large enough to be out of carseats? They were sliding ALL over the place on those seats. And loved every minute of it. 

 When we first got to the pumpkin patch we had snack time. The wind nearly blew the tent we sat in over. it was hard to keep everything on the table, but we managed somehow.
 After snack we got to ride on the hay ride. The girls wanted to sit on the floor of the ride though it had a bench on it.

 After our fun hay ride (equally as bumpy as the bus ride) we got to go play in corn and  wheat! They asked the kids to hold up a piece of each before they played.

 Then we got to go see the animals. Taylor loved the baby cows. We need to go over to the sandstrom farm next year when those little baby cows are born. Baby cows are stinkin cute!

 Then we saw the pigs. They were by far my favorite farm animal. SO CUTE. I want one.

 Taylor's class is very good about walking in a line. They're teacher has them hold their hands behind their backs when they're in line and really do good sticking with it.  We also got to see the sheep you can in the photo below. They had a basket of wool we got to feel as well.
 THE CHICKENS... they gross me out a bit, pooping all over the ground and then pecking at it... YUCK. The kids had to keep their hands behind their back for these so their fingers didn't get pecked. The white chicken in the photo was poking her head out of the fence pecking at the ground at taylor's feet and it freaked her out... glad I caught her face on that one.
 The goats. We've seen goats tons of times at the zoo, but for some reason taylor was not all that into touching these.

 Then we all went and sat and heard a story about how the pumpkin patch works... how they plant their pumpkins, grow, and then harvest them. It was neat.

 Next the kids got to pump water like they would have had to do daily if they were born decades and decades ago.

 The kids had already picked out their pumpkins here and were waiting for everyone to finish.

 Mrs. Johnson's Pre-K class at A.Z. Kelley. There are a bunch of cute kids in that class.

 We then went through the corn maze... no photos of that, but then the kids got to run through the hay maze!

 OH, and we say William while we were there.  I think he's the cutest little boy I saw all day ;)

 These next photos are so blurry because like I said, That bus driver was nuts.
 See taylor falling out of the seat! That happened like 20 times!

They had a blast and loved every minute of it. So glad I was able to go on this field trip with Taylor. I can't wait for the many more she'll have. And glad I got to know her 2 best friends at school some more. They are sweet hearts!
