Yesterday, I got to attend Dawson’s 1st ever field trip. To say that he was excited is an understatement. He was THRILLED..and on top of that he asked at least 10x if Rea Rea (his nickname for Reagan) was going and jumped up and down when I said it was just the two of us. He loves some one on one time with his mama and I’m loving that he loves it! : )
So, the field trip was to a corn maze on a local farm. They really had a great set up and the weather was amazing. We had a lot of fun!
Just a little excited!
Even though I look at their sweet faces everyday sometimes it surprises me at how much they look alike. And don’t they look very grown up in this picture??
Just hanging out on the farm!
Dawson and his buddy (neighbor, car pool friend, partner in crime) Cole
We went on a fun hay ride around the farm and afterwards headed over to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin!
After quite some searching Dawson settled on this orange and green spotted one.
We ventured through a mini corn maze..and a bigger one too with his whole class but I didn’t get any pictures of that. In the BIG corn maze we followed clues to find our way out. The kids had fun. I asked Dawson what he thought we would find in the maze? Lions? Tigers? Bears? His reply, “No, just corn!”
Removing all the kernels of corn from the cob. What big muscles he has!!
Very cool sand box FILLED with corn kernels and lots of buckets, scoopers, and of course farm equipment toys. This was one of Dawson’s very favorite parts!
Pausing just long enough for me to snap a picture.
Dawson and I stopped for a quick picture in front of this super cool hay bale spider before we left. The sun was bright and in his face..and he was “sweaty and tursty” so this was the best we could do! This spider reminds me that I almost died this morning when I spotted a very large 8 legged creature in my kitchen. I feel certain it looked something like this:
Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration but did I mention I don’t do spiders? And of COURSE I was going to be brave and flip-flop squish the terrifying creature but as I returned to the room with said flip flop…IT WAS GONE! I feel a little jittery…
