Fall is my favorite season by far. I wish I could live in fall all year round. I love the rainy days. I love the changing leaves and all the baked deliciousness. I just adore the season. Fall is also the time when we seem to get out and do more than just the park. I think it’s because of all the festivals and community days that happen.
Recently, my brother in law’s school put on a fall family night. It was nice. It had been a while since I did the school fest thing and this one was different than others I’ve gone to. With my younger sister and brother’s school, they charged for tickets to do things. It was a way to raise money for the school. This one had most of the items donated and all of it was free with the exception of dinner I believe.
They had pumpkins to decorate, little ghost crafts that I will recreate for the blog in about a week, make your own caramel apples, games, bounce houses and a fun tractor ride.
Emmie loved the tractor ride and wanted to go on it again and again. Landon wanted to do the games. While we were only able to do one, he loved it. It was beer pong. Well without the beer and you won a fish for sinking a ball in the cups. He had a blast and won two fish. One for him and one for his sister. We’ve named them Phineas and Ferb.
The kids played on the play ground for a while and even struck a pose for me!
My favorite picture of the night though was a family picture my mother in law snapped of all of us. It’s rare that I’m able to get in the shot with everyone so it was a nice change of pace. I love it so much in fact that I’m going to get it printed and hang it up!
It was a really wonderful night and I can’t wait to do something just as fun next weekend!
How is your fall going? Are you doing a lot with the family?
