A couple of weekends ago our church hosted it's Annual Fall Festival. This year it was at the beginning of October rather then the end of October. They wanted to make it more of an outreach to the community which we thought was a great idea. But there wasn't an emphasis on dressing up, which I kind of missed.
They do have tons of games for the kids to play and win candy or prizes. There are usually bounce houses and food.
This was the first year that they had a few farm animals to pet. Two sheep and two goats to be exact. Cohen was loving it. And Avery enjoyed it too. Cohen also tried to feed one of the little goats, it wasn't having any of it, but it was fun none the less.
There was a guy there making balloon animals. All Cohen wanted was a snake and he was pretty adament about that. At first he wanted a green one. Then decided after that one was made he wanted a red one. So he got two. Lucky kid.
Family picture time. We don't have many family pictures. But I wanted to make sure I got at least one of us at this. Here's our best try. It also happened to be the first one taken.
Cohen went up and down this slide about 20 times. All in a row. I think the only reason I got him away from this was because I asked him if he wanted something to eat. Otherwise I think he would still be on it now.
And this little lady had her first go at a bounce house. She loved it! She was fearless. She did not want to leave at all. Even with bigger kids on it she just want to walk and "bounce" all she could. It was the cutest thing to watch. She couldn't keep her balance at first, but she had so much fun falling down. She would try and bounce by just bending her knees. Oh, it was so fun!

I even had to get in on the action. It was fun to jump around with them and just watch the excitement on their faces.
We were there over 4 hours and most time was spent at the bounce house. We had it all by ourselves a couple of times. It was a really great evening. Until we left and a certain little boy had a major breakdown because he didn't want to leave. Next time we will make sure to get there on time and not let him eat any of the candy. Well, maybe just one, but not five.
