Fall Happenings

Christmas/winter is still my favorite season, but fall is a close second! We have had such a great time this year taking advantage of the cooler weather (and mommy's healed back!) to do some fun stuff. 

One thing we have missed the last couple of years is the Dixie Classic Fair. I moved to NC when I was 13 and the fair was a yearly tradition for our family. It was something I looked forward to every year, and just the smells alone can bring back such a nostalgic feeling. Once we got married, Jason isn't a huge fan of the fair so we didn't go much. Then the kids came along and were so little and money being tight, we weren't able to go the last few years. But this year, my sister and I decided to brave it and take the kiddos. We weren't there very long, but it was just right! We rode the carousel (and realized how old we are, getting sick on the tamest of rides), played a game and won prizes, ate yummy fair food, fed some goats, and had lots of fun. The kids loved it and I was happy to be back in a place that holds so many good memories!

Harry wanted to ride the tractors, but don't let these "happy" faces fool you - he bawled the entire time once it started to go around! I had to watch sympathetically from the sidelines, poor guy. 

Auntie Sara was a good sport when Eden spotted the giant slide and wanted to ride. They went twice! Check out the video below (sorry it's sideways!). :)

More good memories to add from a fair fun day!

Another fun thing we were able to do was visit the pumpkin patch. It was a bit rainy, but we still had a good time. My parents were in town (looking at houses, since they are moving back to NC in December!!!) and I was so glad for them to be able to join us.

The Pop-arazzi:

They're heavy!

We asked Harry to pose with the scarecrow and he climbed right into his lap and got comfy!

Even Daddy and Auntie Sara got to come!

It was a bit windy too, haha!

So many fun things to celebrate the season!
