Parading through the Pumpkin Patch

Today Nephi's kindergarten class took a field trip. They went to their teacher's house to pick pumpkins and learn about plants and seeds. The weather was perfect! It couldn't have been any better.

Learning about marigolds and where the seeds are. The kids even opened the "dead" flowers and saved seeds to plant in the spring!

Learning about beans and cucumbers.

Picking a "class" pumpkin. All of the teacher's pumpkins were still mostly green so one was picked to take back to school and the kids will be able to watch it turn from green to orange.

All of the kindergarten class together with their little pumpkins to take home.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
