Whew...what a weekend!

This weekend was a busy, but fun one for all of us! Friday was Western Day at Anderson's school. All of the kids dressed up and were treated to a hayride, pumpkin games and a pizza party! Ms. Alicia said he giggled so hard on the hayride that she thought he was going to stop breathing! Meanwhile, Jeff took a well deserved day off and headed to Talledega with my Dad and my step-dad, Mike. We had given them both "ride-alongs" for their most recent birthdays. Jeff is going to blog about that later! After I picked Anderson up from school, we headed to GiGi's house for a fun-filled weekend! Fall is my FAVORITE season, so anything involving the words festival, pumpkin, hay, etc...I am sooooo there! Now that I have Anderson it will probably be even worse!!

Friday night after Jeff met us back at Mom's we headed to "BOO at the Zoo". They had everything decorated for Halloween. They also had little booths set up for trick or treaters and for carnival type games. We dressed Anderson in the warm version of his Charlie Brown Halloween Costume and enjoyed the evening. He had such a great time taking it all in! The staff was thoughtful enough to label the events that might be scary for younger children, so we breezed through the night without incident. It was a blast seeing all of these kids in their costumes!

Saturday morning after sleeping in until almost 9:00 am...Praise GOD!!!...we headed to Old Baker Farm in Harpersville to go to the Pumpkin Patch. It is about 15 minutes past my mom's house, so it wasn't too bad of a ride. We had a blast there too! We were treated to a tractor parade, which Anderson watched in awe! I swear he didn't blink! We also go to pet several farm animals and see a Turkey! They had booths there selling everything from roasted corn on the cob to stationary! We also watched Native Americans do traditional dances and rode a hayride to a real pumpkin patch to pick out Anderson's very own li'l punkin! Our little guy also enjoyed dancing to a bluegrass band! I love to watch him dance!!
