Aidan's Kindergarten class took a field trip to McGarrah's Pumpkin Patch last week. I volunteered to go on an adventure to help...along with lots of other parents. It was so fun and I really liked getting to know his classmates. Now, I know who he is talking about when he comes home telling us stories!
First, we learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin...
...by this guy!
Aidan and his friend, Cade.
Jumping off hay bales is always a favorite with boys!

In the "Land of the Giants."
At the relay races the teachers wondered about whose pumpkin was the best shaped for the job. Aidan's class won!
I believe this was many of the kids first time to play tug of war. We had to explain how to play and they played best two out of three. Aidan's team won! They were then reminded to be "humble winners" after taunting the other teams!

On Aidan's birthday, his grandparents came to spend the afternoon with him. He loved the attention and the Star Wars gifts! It was not a planned party or a themed party but all of the gifts were Star Wars just like he loves!
Six candles on a cupcake is just about the max!
He chose to go to the Marketplace for dinner because he heard that you get a free chocolate mess on your birthday. (Saving the parents money, right?!) It was huge and delicious...all he had hoped for!
The next weekend we planned a little get together with a couple of school friends. The excitement level for this outing was through the roof!
