Field Trip to Paulus Orchards

William had his first field trip with his preschool.  My dad made it just in time to join us.  We went to a family run orchard and pumpkin farm.  A good time was had by all.  The kids learned about how bees pollinate the blossoms on the trees.  Then we hopped in the tractor pulled wagon and headed out to pick the perfect pumpkin.  Then we headed out to the orchards to pick some Red Delicious apples.  After the wagon ride, we were dropped off at a homemade playground with giant tube slides.  Charlotte was excellent by sleeping in her carrier the whole time.  Good ol' farm Fall fun!
