Field Trip

Avery class at Mother's Day Out had a field trip to a pumpkin patch today. It was the neatest place, they actually grow their own pumpkins out there so it was a legit 'pumpkin patch'! We got to go on a hayride, pick a pumpkin, play and then eat a picnic lunch. We all had a blast. Avery has really started to love her one day a week at school(thank goodness!) She showed me some of her friends and it was neat to meet some of the parents. Last week at school when I went to drop her off she said, "bye bye mommy!" and ran in. I was shocked but so glad.

My little school girl all ready for the field trip! They had to wear their school shirts to this and Aves didn't have a bow to match, shocking I know. ;) Luke calls this a small tragedy at our house. So I decided why not try and make one?! I have never wanted to mess with bow making and had tried before but they never turned out too cute, but desperate times call for desperate measures! It turned out really cute I thought! Since then I have made several others. May have a new little hobby!
Her she is showing off "mommy's bow" as she called it :) I also made one to tie her shirt up with because a 2t swallows her up. Turns out I may be making them for lots more little girls at school!

me and Aves on the hayride. Love her!
Love this picture! Luke caught her expression as we loaded the hayride and it started to take off. She loved it!
While 90% of the other kids were calmly walking through the patch picking their pumpkin and taking their time, this was my child running full speed through the patch the whole time. I couldn't even get a picture of her sitting in the pumpkins!

She felt the need to be social and visit with everyone there who she didn't know. She saw Daddy talking to this man, so she grabbed him by the hand and took him off to show him something. I can't take my eyes off this girl! (she def. doesn't get this from me!)
Finally took a second to pick her pumpkin. I love the serious look on her face that she makes all the time. :)
silly girl!
she enjoyed jumping off the hay with the boys, oh my! She looks just like Luke in this picture to me.
Sweet pic of Avery and Daddy looking at the animals.

Haha... small tragedy! The bow turned out great!! I need to get together with you to see how you made it - I've been trying for months and I'm just not impressed with them.
