The Lohstroh's Family Pumpkin Farm

Here are some pic from the trip Rebekah and her classmates from pre-school took today. Amidst the treacherous winds and before the tornado warning...we actually did have fun.

First ride on the school bus. She rode with her classmates just like a Big Girl.

This is the little "pumpkin market" that was near the parking. Lots of variety and some wild looking gourds too.

We took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch. Three tractors pulled three wagons. (My DT sister and friend has a fantastically cute tractor digi that I may have to get from her...isn't that right JONI?)

Sneaking up on the pumpkins? Bekah reminds me of a certain college football trophy...LOL!

Hmm? Will this one do?

No, its my pumpkin and I don't want Aubrey to hold it!

Yeah! Its all mine! I'm so happy!

Who's a pretty pumpkin?

This pretty little pumpkin was just a few feet from the tractor we were on. Nobody wanted it. I guess its all about the adventure of walking through the patch. {{giggles}}

Here was a gorgeous cow! She had a big day too. While we were coming back from the pumpkin patch, she decide to birth a calf!!!! We got to see it after it was only a few minutes old!

Here they are. She had it right there on the "road"! Poor little guy was all icky and wet but she was a bit distracted from all of the admirers gazing. Took clean up a bit longer I expect. I did get to see it on all fours but it only lasted a moment. What a very cool thing to happen on your very first field trip!

"You expect me to eat out here in this wind?" Love the expressions she gives me... the little burger!

Okay, for those of you who don't know this is Bekah's special friend. At school they are called "Mary Jane" and "Peter Parker".  They used to be in a playgroup together when they were just about 12-18 months old. The two just gravitate toward one another. I think its cute.

How tall am I? Check out Bekah's pony tail! The wind was really moving it.

This was a pretty good pic we got in a teeny little structure with some straw bales. She looks like the perfect little country girl.

Okay, you can't really tell but this was a giant "caterpillar". the front end was decorated to look like one. The children took turns climbing up and walking or crawling clear to the other end.

Bekah decided to crawl...very slowly. Aubrey waited patiently trailing behind her big fearless sister.

She crawled so slowly we nearly had a traffic jam. The kids were getting irritated behind her. Poor thing, it was called a "Caterpillar Crawl" after all and that is just what she did.

A little break after all of that crawling.

Right before we left and just before the announcement of the Tornado Warning. The winds were so strong at this point I'd already told Bekah's teacher we were leaving. I went to get the munchkins and they were telling us all about the storm watches and tornado warnings as we were headed to the van.

It wasn't a very long trip but it sure was memorable.

Well, off for now. Enjoy the rest of your week.



  1. Awww. My sweet little friend Bekah looks like she had a nice time. I am sure the winds were bad (as you say), but I love how their hair just "blows in the wind". heehee. These moments are the best, aren't they.
