October? Really?

I just have to know…is it October, or July? Our small town had their annual Pumpkin Festival, and it’s the beginning of October, and was nearly 80 degrees on Saturday!!! What???? We were going through the hay maze sweating! I had the kids in shorts and t-shirts, and us adults were dressed the same way. The Pumpkin Festival takes place on our town square, but this year they moved all of the kid-friendly stuff to another location a few blocks down. It was so nice! They had a hay maze (with a bushel of apples in the middle), a blow-up bouncy thing, face painting, pumpkin painting, all sorts of crafts, balloon animals, pick-your-own-pumpkin, a hay ride, and other things. It was fantastic! The kids had so much fun and with the weather being nice I found it most enjoyable too! We went to the square to have lunch (read: fried, greasy fair food) and then went back to the other location to wait our turn for a hay ride. To top it off, David’s dad and step mom were with us and got to enjoy the day (weekend) too! But, I had to keep asking the question: is it really October? I mean, really, 80 degrees, in October, in the Midwest???

These kids crack me up!
