a second time around a fall fest.

I know right? So remember last weekend? The mind reels. But I tried it again. Matt came along this time, as well as friends of ours from college who are usually witness to our antics at this Fall Fest... and shockingly, it went well! No tantrums! No screaming! No fighting back tears. And they had a hayride thank goodness! That just makes the whole thing I think, the hayride. Except I guess all the rains kept us off the normal route so it was just a whole lot of parking lot. Oh look there's a dumpster, that sort of thing. Ah well. The kids partook in the different games set up around and then went through the maize which was a major hit for my eldest and youngest... which worked in my favor for the middle child otherwise known as King of the Corn Table. We definitely looked like quite the brood walking there like that, the whole bunch of us. But the more the merrier I always say!
It worked out okay. Thank God.

And of course those last few fantastic photos were taken by my sister-in-law.
