Corn Maize and Pumpkin Party

The onset of autumn around here includes field trips and fall parties.  We went with our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group to a local corn maize.  Everyone got to climb on a "spider web" and jump on a giant inflatable "popcorn" pillow.  We raced ducks by pumping water and rode a tractor-pulled wagon all around the farm.  The kids took a barrel train ride, fed goats, and played in a corn-filled sand box.  We all got lost together in the corn maize.  Ryland stuck close to his best friend, Karys, for most of the day.  We took lots of pictures with all the pumpkins and the hay bales and the scarecrow and the wagon.

One of Ryland's friends invited us to a pumpkin party.  We took a pumpkin to decorate, and Ryland had fun sticking on fall stickers and painting his pumpkin.  He played a candy corn relay game and had fun in the ball pit with the babies.  He really enjoyed the yummy snacks!
