We visited the Waimanalo Country Farms again on Halloween, this time with Lil’ K’s preschool. It rained hard overnight and we prepared ourselves for mud. As we were driving toward Waiamanalo, raindrops fell against the bus windows nearly the entire way and I was certain that we would be sloshing around in a muddy field all morning. When we arrived at the farm, we saw this:
Blue skies and the sun was shining over the verdant landscape. It couldn’t have been more gorgeous. Thank God, because I was in no mood for a mud bath.
Most children had at least one parent who accompanied them on the field trip, so they set us loose on the farm, allowing us to spend time wherever our hearts desired. Hubby had the day off, so both of us were able to join Lil’ K for the field trip and it was a fun family day for us. Hubby was working the last time we visited the farm.
Lil’ K enjoyed feeding hay to the farm animals through the fence.
The preschool group went on a hayride around the farm. The wagon was too full, so the parents at the end of the line ended up sitting out the ride to let all of the children on at the same time. Hubby and I were among the last in line, so we opted to get some fresh squeezed lemonade instead. I had never had lemonade that good before. If it wasn’t for the sugar content, I would be tempted to make lemonade at home. Maybe I will, as an occasional treat. :)
And a pumpkin picking outing wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t come home with a pumpkin. So, that we did. I guess we have another Jack-o-Lantern to carve. What does one make with a pumpkin, post-Halloween? Pumpkin pie, perhaps?
Who is Champuru?Aloha, I'm Donna, known everywhere on the Internet as "Champuru." I was born and raised in Hawaii. I'm a Christian. I'm married to my best friend of 18 years, we struggled with infertility and successfully conceived via IVF (and by the grace of God!) in 2008. I resigned from my coveted "secure" government job to be a work-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter. Using my degree in Information Technology and the skills obtained in the marketplace, I started my own business. Now, I work from home, taking clients on a part-time basis, working in my PJ's while the little one sleeps. Life isn't always easy, but it's all good.
