Kylie's Pre-K trip to Green Meadows Farm

In keeping with the unit they are learning, Kylie's Pre-K class went on a class trip today to Green Meadows Farm in Jessup, MD. It was a very fun farm! The kids did everything from milk a cow to pet a baby pig! They had different stations set up for the kids to go to and at the end they got to pick out their pumpkin! We were able to go off on our own to explore the farm, eat lunch, & pick our pumpkins. Kylie loved every minute of it, but after awhile was worn out and actually fell asleep on the bus on the way home! Kylie said that her favorite parts were "picking pumpkins" & "touching the animals". It was alot of fun for all the kids!

Getting on the buses.

Once we got home & Jillian was down for an afternoon nap, Kylie & I got out the pumpkin decorations that Grandma & Grandpa bought for them and decorated the new pumpkins! They turned out SO cute! Once they were decorated we put them out on the front porch next to the beautiful mums that Dziadzi bought a few days ago. It make our front porch look fantastic and ready for Halloween!

The newly decorated pumpkins...too funny!!

Our front porch Halloween/Fall display - the decorated pumpkins definitely add something special to it!

While Kylie & I were at the pumpkin farm, Daddy & Jillian went to play at Storyville and hung out at home before coming to pick us up at school. It was such a great day!! Tomorrow the girls and I are headed out to buy their costumes... stay tuned for Halloween pics!
