Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Fall Festival 2010

Am I glad that's over with! One more thing checked off the "To-Do" list.
Don't get me wrong. The Fall Festival was a huge success this year, but talk about exhausting! I wish I knew how many steps I made yesterday.

It was the perfect weather for the festival. Not too hot, not too cold. And not too windy like it has been in previous years. We estimated that there were between 300-400 visitors at the festival. And that's not counting all of our church members who were there. We really had a good turnout.

This year we added an awesome petting zoo to our list of attractions. Glory Land Farms brought a whole menagerie of animals for the kids to handle: rabbits, chickens, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, a snake...

and an alligator! Yeah, that's me holding an alligator!

The cutest animal of all, though, was this:

Ty really enjoyed the afternoon. And just like I expected, he spent most of his time in the big, inflatable jumpers. Unfortunately, the kids got a little too rough hopping around in there, and Ty has the bumps and bruises to prove it. He came away with busted lip, a black eye, a scraped back, and a scratched finger. And he lost a pair of shoes. Other than that he had a blast! : )
