Grandfather Mountain 2009 Part 1

This year we made our annual trip up to Grandfather Mountain a few weeks late. Sophie and Tate both got sick on the weekends we were supposed to go during prime viewing weekends, but we decided to make it up there anyway because it is such a great family day. The place is gorgeous year round, with or without the fall colors!

Aw, Shucks!

After Halloween I got to go on a field trip with Tate's kindergarten class to the cutest farm! It's a corn farm called Aw, Shucks! They had everything you can imagine there for kids to run around, play, feed, ride, and see. The day flew by so quickly and we all got so tired out there. :)

Isn't is the sweetest farm you've ever seen? Perfect for kindergartens to spend a day in the sun learning and playing!

Keaton took advantage of being left home alone all day. I found him curled up on a couch he isn't even allowed to go on. Too cute!

Happy Halloween

The kids came up with some fun ideas for costumes this year. They were nearly Santa, Mrs. Claus, an elf, and Rudolph, but Santa bailed out to be wild west sheriff and the rest of them didn't feel like they could pull it off without the big guy so they came up with other ideas.

Bo Peep

Wild West Sheriff

A Purple Fairy

A Wizard

We celebrated with the neighbors while waiting for the sun to set. It actually ended up raining for the trick or treating so they came back soaking wet, but still got more than enough candy to make a kid happy.
