Fun at the Fall Festival ~ part 1

This was our first chilly fall event.  I loved taking out the jackets and really needing them.  We took the girls to a local fall festival with their Grandma and Grandpa.  It was so much more than we expected!

It started with a hay ride and two little girls who were so very excited!

Then Abigail discovered a mini hay maze. She's really into mazes (on paper) so to actually walk through one was so much fun for her.

A surprise to us all was the corn pit. They couldn't contain their joy! I'd never seen anything like it. Picture a huge ball pit that kids love to "swim" through but instead of balls it was tons and tons of corn. (and tons and tons of fun)

Jumping fun!

Once she got brave enough Anna took a few jumps herself.

It was a bit too high for Abigail to feel comfortable jumping herself so Anna convinced her to jump in her arms.

What fun to watch them!


  1. Oh wow, my boys would love jumping in that corn!! Ha, I would love it! :) What a neat place.

  2. ok, I have never ever seen a pool of corn!
