We spent last night at a local fall fun fest. It was a great night for our family and we were with fun friends, too. We met up at Carl and Mary’s house. Mike and Abby joined us and we walked over to meet up with Aunt Joyce at her home. Aunt Joyce recently purchased a fabulous scooter to help her get around. It’s so fun to watch her zoom ahead of the rest of us and the girls loved hitching rides with her. The very best part is the candy apple red color! I think the scooter and the fact that Aunt Joyce bought peanuts, finally tipped the scales in Elaina’s eyes. They are buddies now.
As we walked to the festival, the first thing to capture Lydia’s attention was the Ferris Wheel. It was great fun watching the girls ride. Abby was a brave soul and rode with Jessica. Elaina screamed and held her arms in the air the entire time. Too cute!
The food was fun. The freshly fried corn dogs were scrumptous! There were barbeque sandwiches, turkery legs, sausages, funnel cakes and cotton candy. It smelled soooo good. James and I were very naive about how much money it would cost to feed the six of us! I thought about a quote that a wise woman once told me, “Spend your money making memories.”.
Elaina got to see her first real monkey! She’s a fan of monkeys. I know we need to get the poor thing to a zoo. I have been working on James for years now trying to get him to go on a road trip to the Nebraska zoo. Oh, and we were nearly attacked by a hungry camel.
Lydia just HAD to make bottled sand art!
Jessica loved her blue teeth that a church booth gave her!
Anjelia is always a perfect angel in her stroller. She loved all the balloons, especially when they would get away and float up in the sky (as long as it wasn’t her balloon!).
Thanks to friends and family for a very memorable evening!!
