Fun on the potato farm..

Today was Ben's first field trip!
He went to one of the local potato farms.

They learned how and where they store the potatoes.

He then watched as the sorted the potatoes from the vines.

We then went over to the fields

We took a little walk in the fields

Thats when Ben got grumpy because he was cold.

He smiled again when he saw the tractor digging up the potatoes.

He then got to pick some potatoes.

in his mismatched boots.

And hear I am in my cute boots..
( you all thought I wore heels now didn't you)

When it was time to go
I got the best goodbye smooch from Ben

I loved going on the kindergarten potato field trip. Did they let you bring home a big ol' bag of tators? If so, what do plan on making? We made baked potato soup if I remember correctly.

I kind of figured you wouldn't ruin your "June-Oberg-thinks-I'm- crazy-to-be-wearing-these-shoes" shoes at the potato farm :D
