Field Trip!!!

Today Sophia's preschool class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch.  The kids had a great time taking a hayride around the small farm, playing in the blow-up Halloween maze, and playing on their super cool play fort with a bazillion slides & ladders and things to climb.  Really fun....I was just wondering about the pumpkin patch part.  I don't get it.  I just think a dead field with a bunch of pumpkins sitting around seems anticlimactic.  I understand it must be really hard to pick a pumpkin - or chop it off the vine - but I still think the fall mood gets lost in translation when the pumpkins are arbitrarily plunked down in a dead field.  On this trip, the kids only got to see the dead pumpkin dotted field from afar.  Our little "complimentary" pumpkins were waiting for us in giant cardboard boxes..uggh.  If you took the time to carefully place the big pumpkins in a dead field, why couldn't they put the little ones in the dead field too?
