We got to go on another field trip with Nicholas' preschool class yesterday. Sunnyside Gardens is in Saratoga Springs. It was a fun little pumpkin patch. First we got to go on a hayride into the woods. They had a bunch of spider webs and all kinds of other things set up for us to look at on our ride. Then we each got to pick a small pumpkin to bring home. Thankfully they were small because I had to carry them the rest of the day. Then in the center of this place is a small area with LOTS of pumpkins and tombstones with jokes on them. Also some big displays of famous books. All around this area was a small train that we got to go on. Anyone who knows my boys knows that they LOVE trains. Nicholas said this was his favorite part. After we ate lunch we went inside and saw more trains (much smaller though) and they even had a butterfly exhibit. Lastly we got to walk through the "Pumpkin Hall of Flame." Probably about 200 pumpkins that were carved into various things. I saw Piglet, Elmo, Darth Vader and even Edward from Twilight plus so many others. It was really neat to see but the pictures don't do it justice since the flash lightened everything up. All in all, it was a really fun day with my boys. Jacob was asleep before we left the parking lot and Nicholas has not stopped talking about it and wanting to take Daddy to go see the train. Here are some pictures.
