Preschool Playdate - Pumpkin Patch

Bennett's preschool sets up a playdate - outside of normal school days - once a month. It's a great time to meet the other moms, hang out with his teachers + start to learn the personalities of the other littles he is spending his days with when he is not at home. 
This month in the spirit of Fall and all things October, the playdate was scheduled at the Pumpkin Patch!  We headed out to Gentry's Farm in Franklin, TN and it was the perfect day!  

To start, all of the kids loaded up on the tractor and we took a ride around the farm. They took us directly into the cow pasture + a baby calf had just been born the night before so all of the kiddos got to see a brand new babe. We got super close to the cows and it was so fun to watch their faces in amazement!
Next we headed to the hay barn and kids maze area where Bennett had a blast going down all of the bumpy slides and making his way through the tunnels!



And then we headed onto the chickens and turkeys. They were hysterical and were really interacting with the kids. One turkey in particular was VERYYY vocal and Bennett thought it was so funny. "Gobble Gobble Mommy" I've been hearing for days now with a cute snicker at the end.




After we watched all of the animals + played in the corn and wheat troughs we headed to explore the activity barn and Mrs. Anita (the MDO director) pushed B on the tire swing.

Then we lingered for a while longer in the kitchen hut before we headed to the picnic tables to devour our lunches and eat our weight in pumpkin bread!

And last but not least we picked our pumpkin and posed for a picture. And Bennett loving called this truck, Mater. (From the Disney Pixar Movie, Cars, one of his favorites),

And yes, of every pumpkin at the ENTIRE patch ... Bennett picked that tiny little pumpkin to bring home and lovingly placed it on the front porch for all of the drive by cars to see!
And before we sign off, we need to send a very very special birthday message to our favorite leading ladies + October baby, GoGo!!! Happy Happy Birthday GoGo!!  We LOOOOOVE YOU more than dump trucks!
