Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Mr. Yesteryear Acres decided that we needed to take a field trip.  Where were we going?  To the pumpkin patch!
Mr. Yesteryear Acres took us to a glass blowing class to make pumpkins!
Here were our glass color choices
Choosing which colors we loved the most was the hardest part!
Super excited to make our pumpkins! 
After removing the hot glass from the furnace, you have to blow the glass into a mold to form the ridges of the pumpkin. 
Then it is time to blow the glass 
Slow and Steady 
watching the pumpkin take shape! 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres pumpkin shape was perfect (of course) 
Ready for the stem 
The hot glass for the stem first gets put into a mold and then into the colored glass pieces and then finally gets attached to the pumpkin 
Yesteryear Acres Field Trip Success!

Love them!
