Harvest Fair

Today was Grace's first official Field Trip. Her Kindergarten class when to the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. She has been looking forward to her first field trip since school started and has been counting down the days all week. I took the day off work so that we could spend it together.

Grace fed carrots to a horse, milked a plastic cow, and hugged Clo, the most famous cow in Sonoma County.

We learned about cows and what it means to chew the cud. We saw giant award winning pumpkins (605 lbs!) and navigated a hay maze.

One of the biggest things Grace was looking forward to was a "fair lunch". She eagerly ate her entire Giant Corn Dog. Then we fed leaves to a goat (they think they are chips!), and hunted for eggs in a huge pile of straw.

Our last stop before we left was the "Barnyard Scramble". There played pumpkin bowling (Grace knocked down 6 pins!), had a potato sack race and did somersaults. I'm not sure what we were supposed to do with the plastic animals in the red barn, but Gracie chose to throw them out of the window (don't worry I made her pick them up and put them away).
There wasn't as much to do at this year's Harvest Fair, but we still had a good time spending some Mommy-Gracie time with no other siblings.
