Fall Festival on the West Coast

One of the things the look forward to every year is the elementary school’s Fall Festival, and this year was happy to see her new here on the West Coast does one as well. 

Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to make it rain the days leading up to the festival as well as the day of, so it was moved inside the which made it more discombobulated as games were separated down different halls and everything else was divided into different classrooms. 

But in spite of the seemingly excessive crush of people and trying to figure out where all the games were, the had and I managed to snap a few shots of said fun.  They were excited to see the ‘pumpkin patch’ set up where they could ‘pick’ a pumpkin to decorate:

Time to decorate:


They had a great area for picture taking – of course this is the closest would sit next to her little brother – you know, boy germs and all.  She wouldn’t even get close enough to give him ‘proper’ rabbit ears:


You know they’ll both be laughing about this years down the road like I am right now. 

They spent the full two hours running around, playing pumpkin bowling and candy fishing and standing in line for the bounce house on maniacal repeat, and agreed that West Coast Fall Festivals are just as as East Coast ones.

As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. Great pic of your kids, even if they are so far apart! My kids are older so they don’t participate in stuff like that anymore but I sure do miss it. I always enjoyed watching them learn, create, and play when they attended events like that.
