Apple Festival

We went to the local Apple Festival. I had heard it was a lot of fun but it turned to be not much more than a glorified farmers market.The experience was so underwhelming I almost forgot to blog about it! Here are a few pictures I took anyway. There was music and we had a little picnic with overpriced, under seasoned food. The mini petting zoo was the highlight for Audrey and Sadie and Wyatt were kind of bored. The pony rides closed before we made our way to them. We did get to tour the old Prairie town buildings. But where the heck were the apples?

This is first of a few Jack-O-Lanterns we have to carve. And as you can see, clothing is optional in our house.

The Patch

Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch. We knew the kids would have fun, but never knew Audrey was such a little dare devil! She went through the Creepy Tunnel all by herself! She wasn't too keen on riding the train but Sadie and Wyatt thought is was fantastic. We each got a pumpkin, to be carved this evening. It wasn't nearly as chilly as last year and the kids are that much older so it was great family time.

Inside the HUGE pumpkin!

Don't make me ride the train.
