This weekend, while Nik was out of town - Jaxen and I headed to the park for a Fall Festival!
Sidenote: I love seeing all the pictures of everyone’s kiddos at fall festivals this time of year
on Facebook and other blogs, but it is a little bit funny to me that most of the
kids are in short sleeves and shorts still!
It was around 35 degrees here Saturday morning while we were out. Cold!
We arrived right when it started so thankfully, it was not too busy yet.
First stop: Pumpkin Painting
He had the best time painting.
I forgot to take a final picture of the pumpkin, but know it is covered in every paint color possible :)
Second stop: Animals
He got to pet a goat and see donkeys, alpacas and llamas.
He loved talking to the animals and watching them eat their “snack” (grass).
We walked around some after that - saw many vendors; drank cider; ate popcorn…
all the “fall festival” kind of things…
and then ended our time at the Bounce House!
As we were leaving I saw a hay bale with 2 pumpkins on it.
I stopped for a photo op.
Because I have yet to take Jaxen to a pumpkin patch. Mom Fail.
Does this count?!
And yes, I made Jaxen take his coat off for about 2 minutes for a few pictures.
Melts my heart!
