Peyton Hatfield was all smiles when her preschool class at Apple Blossom Joy School of East Wenatchee visited the pumpkin patch in Malaga. The kids were treated to a ride behind a tractor, saw some baby pigs, negotiated a corn maze and got to take home their own pumpkin. Peyton is the daughter of Amanda Hatfield of East Wenatchee.
