Bishop Pumpkin FarmIn the middle of the month Christopher Preschool went on a field trip to the Bishops out in Wheatland. Christopher was not feeling all so great that day, so i did not get any great group pics. But he still had a wonderful time with his class. They all got to ride the train, go on a hayride, got to go down the slide at marble mountain, and at the very end we all got a fresh cup of apple cider. mmmmm All in all it was a great day, but it was so hot. I think it was in the 90's that day. So i felt bad for the children that did not have the parents with them. We luckily brought my water pack, and we always had water. Teacher Micheyl reminded the children that the must pick a pumpkin they could carry. Christopher was happy to find his little baby pumpkin right away.

This year was Christopher 1st trip to Bishop Pumpkin Farm. I also learned it was Jaime's too. At the beginning of the month before things got to crazy we met our Ranger friends and family down in Wheatland. This farm is so much fun. The have a train, hayrides, petting zoo, pig races, grave tractors, a wooden train, steel rocking horse, slides, and even a old train that is real. The also have homemade crafts and food. The Bookholtz's and Jimerfields's met us down there to have a great time too.
The family picture, should have done it when everyone was awake and happy
The Train ride around the farm
The old train. Him and Dylan had a blast playing and running
The gravel pit tractors, this was a super fun one.
We bought Chris some food to feed the goats. The food was in Ice Cream cones. I was surprised he wanted to feed them. After awhile he was picking the baby goats up and carrying them around. After i left i seen a sign that read "Don't let your children pick up the animals" oh well.
They had this huge area were the laid down old mattresses and threw hay over it. The children could run, jump and bounce. It was really fun to watch.
This wooden train was pretty cool. We stayed here for a while
Ranger Tom, Josh, and Jaime got in on alittle rocking horse action too.
Dylan and Christopher were too cute. They wanted to try and pick them up, but as you can see they were way too big.
We all enjoyed the hay ride but Jaime, he was trying to get out of it the whole time. But it was fun watching Chris and the other boys pick their pumpkins.
Marble Mountain was alot of fun, just big slides on the mountain. When its time to leave they give you alittle bag and you can get 10 marble out of the water. The kids just love it.

Pink October: Geweke's Caring for Women Foundation. Pink October started 13 years ago as a single 5K Race for Awareness. It has grown into 6 events. It is pretty cool that they have something like this in our area. I asked my mother to do it over a month ago, but she said, she would be working. So of course she waiting until the day before to tell me she was coming. It all worked out and the 3 of us had a wonderful day. Next year we might be alittle more organized. It is always hard going to a event for the first time. You never know what to accept. Last year they had only 720 people, this year they had over 1200. So of course they were alittle unorganized too. They ran out of shirts and etc. Luckily we both got one.
