Fall Festival

Last evening was our town's Fall Festival. Unlike the town Easter Egg Hunt, the Fall Festival is great! Many of the business' in town set up booths of activities for the children to play and there is a costume contest! There are a few other activity for bigger kids, too.

When I put Chloe Jo down for her nap, I told her that we were going to go to the festival after she woke up. She was so excited that she went right to sleep! As promised when she woke up I helped her put on her costume and we took a few pictures before we left for the festival.
"Hey there Little Red Riding Hood. You sure are looking good. You're everything a big, bad wolf could want." Ha! Every time I see her costume I think that song! I think she is the cutest Little Red Riding Hood ever! I'm so glad she doesn't get eaten by the wolf!

When we got to the festival, the tables to sign up for the costume contest were the first thing as we came into the door. The ladies talked me into signing Chloe Jo up against my better judgement. We ended up leaving before the contest started so we just told them to take her off the list. I'm actually really glad we didn't do it because Chloe Jo is so shy. She would have hated getting up on the stage and everyone looking at her!

Even though we didn't stay for the costume contest, we did play a lot of games and had a blast! Chloe Jo started out trying to toss the rings on these tubes.
But then she realized it was a lot easier to just walk up to them and put the rings on from there.
She loved getting ducks out of the water. She wanted to stay and play. She didn't even care about getting a prize for this one!
Bless her little heart, she tried so hard to get these beanbags through this pumpkin. You can see for yourself how close she got. I don't think we are going to have a baseball player like Daddy would like.
Then again...maybe the beanbags were just a warm-up for her! She did great with this activity. I think she ended up getting 3 of the balls into holes.
Daddy really tried to help her golf the correct way...
But Chloe Jo's way was much easier and more fun! Of course, it didn't get the ball anywhere near the targets. Oh well!
We had a lot of fun taking Chloe Jo to the Fall Festival and seeing all the costumes! I'm so excited to take her trick-or-treating tomorrow!

I may or may not be more excited about it than Chloe Jo is!

Love her costume! Annika was Little Red Riding Hood too but her costume is slightly different.
