I was a bit apprehensive as we headed to the farm. We have been going for the past 5 years and it seemed my RSVP list was much shorter than usual! But I fretted for nothing, turns out most people didn't realize they were supposed to RSVP and just showed up. We had close to 40 kids and about 15 adults. The kids had a GREAT time foraging through the maze and the little ones loved the haydive and corndive. The weather was ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, I couldn't have custom ordered better weather! Cade took a nasty fall of the top of the haydive (with the "help" of two other boys) and it really shook him up. No bruises by his back was really bothering him.

When we left, everyone picked out pumpkins. The one Jacob picked looks like a skull. Can't wait to see what they do with them when they paint them!

We were sad we couldn't come this year--Mandy babysits the twins on Friday mornings and Shelby & Tabby have gymnastics. Tabby is going to be on the gymnastics teams (three nights a week: yecchhh) so we will probably drop gymnastics on Fridays. Hopefully we can come to some stuff then!
