Fall break comes to a end...

Sarah and Dessie


Dessie and I

Sarah, and Dessie

Well, fall break is officially over. School resumed yesterday morning. It was wonderful to have 9 days of family time, no schedules, late nights, late mornings, etc. We ended the weeks activities by taking the kids, and some of their friends to the state fair, on Friday night. We wanted to go this particular night so we could 1. celebrate Steve birthday which was the following day. and 2. To see Blake Shelton, and Miranda Lambers perform. We had a great time with everyone together! Geepers, those fair rides are looking scarier, and scarier to me. My kids, and Steve tend to be pretty darn fearless. I would watch from the ground as some of these rides sounded like they may fall apart momentarily! Rickity rickity rickity...

Sarah, Dessie, and I went to Schnepf's farm on Thursday. We enjoyed our time there. There were so many darling fall things to see! We were able to feed some deer, which was a first for us. I will be posting about Steve's birthday later. It is always fun to celebrate another year with him!

Looks like so much fun. I am laughing at your short sleeves as you guys are going around. We are using jackets now. Take care and sorry the fun had to end.

I agree, the fair rides are crazy. I can't believe I just braved them fearlessly as a child. I mean, hello, they transport and then set them up and you're supposed to trust it? lol. You girls are so cute in the pics. I have that same orange shirt. Love it.

How fun! Your family is so darling! You guys are always doing such fun things. I want to go to Shnepfs farm. I still wish you would have been with us at Rocky Point. I thought Dessie was one of Sarah's friends. We need to get together! I feel like at Mutual I don't get to catch up because I'm trying to focus on the girls. Call me! I'm sewing costumes all day for Light! UGGGG!!!

I usually love when the breaks are over and the kid go back to school, but this year not so much. Don't you love Schnepf's? And those rides at the fair kind of make me nervous, too!

So fun!! I had a chance to feed deer for the first time this year too... but it was at a zoo, so I'm not sure that counts. LOL
