Fall Fun

Okay, it's almost Thanksgiving and I figured I'd better get around to my fall activities or they might never get done. In mid-October I got to the take the boys to the fall festival at a local church. There were lots of games, inflatables, and food. There was a puppet show, a hay ride, and a pumpkin patch. We had a great time and stayed for over three hours! Here are the boys picking out some pumpkins.

They also had face painting. What does Calvin ask for? A snake, of course. Not long after she started, the face painter (a church volunteer) asked him if he knew Jesus...

A week later, while Calvin was in school, I got to take Luke to the pumpkin patch all by himself for storytime. Of course, he had to pick out another pumpkin.

He loved this scarecrow and "hung out" with him for about 10 minutes.

Can you tell he just had a haircut? Yes, we are in our shorts and t-shirts. There's really no such thing as "fall" in south Texas!

Cute, cute, cute! I can't believe how much Calvin looks like Dave and Luke looks like you! Those boys sure are growing up fast!

Boys are so Luke w/ the scarecrow and the fall festival looked like a lot of fun!

I remember decorating our house for fall in HI. It's hard to get into the fall mentality when it's so hot out. My boys never want their faces painted. They always have to have the people paint on their arms to make tattoos.

Luke is a cutie. I liked the pics with the scarecrow.

Warm weather sounds so good right now.
