Lucas' First Field Trip

Today my little man is 9 months old! I can't believe it!! I will post his letter, but he goes to the doctor Monday and I'm going to wait until after that:)

Yesterday, our babysitter was sick, so Nick took off with Lucas. He had an eye appointment yesterday afternoon so he brought him up to me at school. It worked out perfectly because my class was going on a field trip to a pumpkin patch! I was so excited to take him. He'd never ridden a bus or seen a pumpkin before, so it was going to be great fun!

My kids absolutely loved him being there with us! They can't get enough of him everytime he comes for a visit!

I know, I know...shame on me for having him on a bus, but I had no other option. He loved the bumpy ride, but it was not easy to take a picture. This is horrible, but it's the best I got;)

Each student got to pick a pumpkin and I cut it for them. They also let me pick one for Lucas. It was the perfect little round pumpkin and he absolutely loved it. I snapped a lot of pictures of him exploring it for the first time!

And one of him and me at the end of the table with all my kids eating their snack:)Again, not great, but you can imagine he had a lot to look at!

Speaking of snack, I found this idea for a pumpkin rice krispie treat from Pinterest and we made them! This is what they're really supposed to look like.

Apparently, I didn't add enough food coloring and my kids formed them, so we didn't do the leaves, but they loved making them!

All in all, it was a great day and the weather was beautiful! A fun first in Lucas' life:)

P.S. Go see my dear friend Whitney for a wonderful giveaway!

I love reading about your little boy, it makes me so excited for my son who is due in November! I hope that I am able to document his life like you have done with Lucas
