Fall Is In the Air...

So our church was supposed to have a Fall Festival a few weeks back... and it got rained out.  We rescheduled it for today, October 4th, and we couldn't have asked for a better day.  We have FINALLY gotten a bit of fall weather and it was absolutely perfect!

Before we headed over to the church to help set things up, I wanted to get a few quick pictures of Kate in her "cowgirl boots".  She was so excited to wear them today!

And then it was fall festival time!  The kids had a blast.  The biggest hit was, of course, the big bounce house, but we also had a dunk tank, face painting, hay rides, sack races, 3-legged races, tug of war, tricycle races and corn hole.  Oh yeah, and what fall festival is complete without some great fall foods... especially caramel apples. 

At first Kate was totally opposed to getting her face painted.  I lost track of her for a little while and turned around to see her doing this...

Apparently she asked for Spider-Man, but specified that it had to be a PINK Spider-Man.  That's my girl!

One of the other favorite activities, for at least the little kids, was the tricycle races!  On the first race, Kate had a "wreck" and flipped her tricycle.  I went over to help her flip it back over and finish the race and she was crying.  I figured she must have gotten a little hurt when she fell over, so I was looking her over and saying "You're fine.  You're okay.  Hop up and get back on."  

She kept on crying and then looked at me and said "But I'm NOT okay. I DIDN'T WIN!!!"

Priorities, right? :)   I guess we have a little competitor on our hands. 


  1. Oh goodness, tricycle races!!! Such a cute idea :)
    My son is like that- he's very competitive. He hates to lose! I try to tell him we all lose sometimes but he says "Nope, not him"!
    She looks so cute in those boots
    Our weather was amazing this weekend too. Glad you all had great weather for the festival. Looks like lots of fun :)

  2. She looks like a tough little competitor in that Spider-Man get up :)

  3. The cowgirl boots look very good on Kate. And about her losing, she should not worry we cannot always win.


I'd love to hear from you- new friends or old!
