Today D’s class had a field trip to Ward’s Berry Farm in Sharon. It was our first time visiting this farm – boy is it a beauty.
They have a store where you can purchase all of their produce but they also have gorgeous flowers for sale.
We arrived a little early so D got to play on the playground while we waited for our hayride.
He was such a good little doobie today.
We hopped onto the trailer that was being pulled by a huge tractor and taken for a ride around the farm.
Our guide made a few stops around the farm to educate us on the wonderful vegetation the farm grows – like melon, corn, broccoli and pumpkins (just to name a few). D actually ate raw broccoli and LOVED it. He kept asking for more – who is this kid??? Is that the key to getting him to eat veggies – I have to give it to him freshly picked?
D loved the bumpy ride through the muck and massive puddles. I was just thankful that we were not trucking around on foot – we would have been knee deep in filthy goop.
He enjoyed an apple during the ride. Fruit and vegetables in one day and I did not have to force feed them to him. Seriously, who replaced my son with this healthy eater?
We were able to get off the ride for a quick romp in the pumpkin patch. My little pumpkin got to pick his own to take home. He wants me to carve it into a jack-o-lantern for him.
After the ride D ate some lunch with his friends and then we ventured home. It was a blast and I am definitely going back to check out the farm store.
Look who I found zonked out when we got home. I would say that he was a bit pooped after the farm fun.
I just got back from a Girl Scout meeting. My niece convinced me to play tag with the girls. What a day!!! I am going to go put my feet up and relax. I hope you had a great day.
