the best five dollar pun-kin field trip ever

 

 

It was a beautiful day for a  Simcock Farm field trip.

I’ll be honest.  I don’t usually do field trips with all three kids.  Or rather without a Trevy Helper and all three kids.  Smile

I went a little crazy this time.  Not only did I bring all three kids minus a Helper…I also invited a friend for Tobes!

 

But five dollars for a hay ride, corn maze, pumpkin and ice cream? 

 

Well…that just invites crazy, right?!

You have no idea how fitting the Trevy Monster is! 

 

Unless you have a Trevy for your own, anyway.

The kiddos had SO much fun.

They just love being around friends and exploring nature.

Except Trevy.  He’s in this weird phase where he’s scared of everything.  My best guess is it’s some Sensory Processing funky business.  Meanwhile hoping in my heart there’s not some seizure storms brewing under the growing back in curls.  And there’s the rub with having a Non-Verbalish kiddo.  He can’t tell me what’s going on.  I’ll be chatting with his OT about it at our next appointment.  He was having a sensory day and everything was freaking him out.  He’d be okay for a few minutes and then it was cranky city.  And the only thing that made him happy was mommy cuddles.

Thank goodness a girlfriend was there to help out!

 

Seriously, Jen, I couldn’t have done it without you!  Or at least I couldn’t have done it without having a mommy melt down the whole way home without you! 

 

I refuse to do any field trips without you ever again! Winking smile

While I schlepped a cranky Trevy…

The photos do not do his monstrous-side justice. He looks more natural surrounded by pink ice cream.

Now how is it you mention your potential for a meltdown while Trevy is on sensory overload? ;)

Just saw this one again - you might want to read:
