Registration

PLEASE NOTE: WHEN YOU REGISTER IT WILL SAY ATTENDEE "FREE", BUT THE COST IS $4 PER PERSON (AGES 2 AND UP; SEE MORE INFO BELOW) AT THE EVENT. WE KINDLY ASK YOU TO REGISTER SO THAT WE CAN GIVE THE HOSTESS AN ACCURATE COUNT.

Hello, everyone! I am pleased to say that we're on for Friday, Oct. 7th @ Andelin Family Farms for our field trip. Here is what you get for the $4 per person fee (1 & under are free): A small pumpkin per person; seeing the 40+ animals, I believe it's extra to feed them; crafts, such as making necklaces & coloring; a hayride; activities that include a hay fort w/slide, "cow milking" & a bean bag toss game- all new this year! The corn box w/toys has expanded to a corn shed. There's also a hay maze, dress-up, slingshot shooting @ pumpkins & toys for little ones to push around. 
You can pay extra & pick-your-own pumpkin, we did that last year & it was fun. We caught & released little frogs that were leaping out while doing so, fun for the kids! They sell crafts & other little things there if you want to buy some goodies from them. They offer more food for sale now, such as- candy apples, popcorn, orange cotton candy & drinks.
 
  We will have lunch @ 1pm in their covered pavilion & the grassy area by it. Some people might want to bring blankets or towels to sit on for your families. :)  This year, everyone will check-in with me & pay at the gate. Natalie w/the Andelin Farms said she won't put a limit on how many of us can attend this year, but we need to enter as a group since we aren't paying ahead. (I think we will do so in the following years to make things easier.) Please RSVP to give us an idea of how many are attending to give her ahead of time. I told Natalie some of you might run a little late this year (due to another field trip), just tell her you're with NNHS if you're one of those families. I scheduled lunch first to allow those coming from the (42 min., 11am) Sharks IMAX movie to make it over in time to join us. I'm guessing we'll be entering around 1:30pm for the activities, so you shouldn't have to rush.
 
  Be sure to bring a picnic lunch for your family & join us there! We'll provide cake for desert in honor of (our son) Remington's 8th birthday on the 8th, courtesy of NNHS. Thank you everyone for your patience while I got through scheduling my 1st field trip for us. A big thank you to Heather Mayorga for thinking this one up last year, it is so much fun. I'll keep it going for years to come & add others for our group, too. Carol & I have 3 families who have already RSVP'd: Beckwith- 7, Kolda (my own)- 6 & Demuth- 4. Yeah, 17 people already! We look forward to seeing more of you there! God Bless. ;)
 
Directions to the Farm:
  They are located at 8100 Pyramid Highway in Spanish Springs. It's about a 1/2 mile North of the Lazy 5 Park/Spanish Springs Library on the same side of the road. There will be 2 big orange pumpkin signs out on Pyramid for the pumpkin patch, if you turn East on the dirt road between the signs you'll get there. You can always use Google Maps, too!
