Festival As A Verb

I love Fall. I love my family. I love Fall-festivalling with my family (see previous years here and here). Seriously though (and this deserves a blog post all its own), my immediate family members are my best friends. I love those guys and everyday wish with all of my being that we lived in the same place. Truth be told I often get sad thinking about my sister and me, both stay-at-home Moms doing the same things everyday, yet living three hours away from each other. I mean, we could be doing all of these things TOGETHER.

But anyway. This past weekend was our little town's little Fall Festival. Although I am thinking they must have put it in the newspaper down in Phoenix or something because there were so, so many people down there. We had a great time though, and luckily we arrived just as it began so we could hightail it out of there before 1pm when it started to get really packed. It's always a fun event- tons of things for kids to do between the jumpy castles, booths to trick-or-treat, and even a little pumpkin patch. It's events like this that make me love where we live even more, and grateful that there's always something fun to do with kids. And even though sometimes Hank and I dream of big cities and different places, right now small town life is really the life for us.

Here are some photos from our weekend- I hope you had a lovely one too!

    1. Haha, I am glad you noticed that photo because I thought the same thing. My sister, Mom and I were all over the place so they were in charge. :)

      Thanks for the comment, Paula! I hope you have a great rest of your week. xoxo

  3. A dinosaur and a watermelon! Too much cute for one post :)

    Henry's costume actually reminded me of a post on another blog (I don't think he's a menace at all, promise, I just loved the dinosaur connection :] )

  4. I know exactly what you mean when you talk about your sister and family living close by. I recently moved next door to my sister AND Mum. it's easier to do where i live, i suppose. Having everyone around is awesome though. My sister's kids ride their bicycles to my house and it's always great to have someone you can score eggs and milk from, when you're out. And it also means I get alot of help with Georgie when needed. I feel grateful. And I understand the need you feel.

    1. Next door? Oh my goodness I would LOVE that. And I totally get what you mean about the milk and eggs. Plus, Mom's food always tastes better. :)

  6. Wonderful photos, as always, Dani! Your pictures exude such warmth -- it's really something special. :)

    If we're talking driving distance, I live 9, and 21 hours from my sisters. My middle sister is also a SAHM, with a 2 year-old (just like our Maile), and I so wish we lived closer! She and her husband may be making a move to either Phoenix (a short flight) or even here to Denver soon, though, so I have my fingers crossed!

  7. Please tell me Henry had a tail! My friend dressed her son as a dinosaur a few years back and as he ran back and forth, the tail would "wag." It was so adorable! Tail or no tail, it's still such a cute costume!
