3 Lambs on the hay bales-sorry for the glare 
3 Lambs doing the small straw bale maze-Lamb 2 was really good at this!

Riding the wagon with friends-the wagon took just us and one other family.

Lamb 1 in the corn pile-I had to watch him the closest, that he didn't stick corn in his ears-go figure since he is the oldest Lamb!

I commented that in MN they would never have a corn pile for kids-we knew too many accidents on the farms with people in corn bins. I know this was just a few inches and parents/teachers watch their kids, but we didn't stay in the corn bin long. In MN we had a sand table filled with corn, but didn't get in the corn.

We were on vacation when Lamb 3's preschool class went to the pumpkin farm for a field trip. So I organized our own field trip with my friend Joelle's kids. The dads had to work, but the moms and kids had a great field trip. It happened to be a day that some of the local schools had off so they opened up to the public, not just field trips while we were there. It was crowded and if I ever organize a field trip again we'll try to avoid a day that the schools are off. But we had a great time and we look forward to going again next year. The weather was beautiful the day we went-after that it got colder and rainy some days.
