Fall Fun

Happy Monday! We had a fun filled weekend with amazing weather down here in Mississippi, and I’m so sad it’s all over. I wish the temperature would stay like this forever! On Saturday morning, my dad drove up here early to hang out with us. There is an annual car show here in Madison, and we decided to sell Orange Leaf frozen yogurt from a booth this year. Bobby left early to set up, and my dad and I arrived later with Emma Kate. (My dad came up for this same car show last year so it was fun to do it again!)

This was only our second time at the car show, but apparently this was it’s 12th year. There were a lot more cars that had awesome access systems than last year, so apparently it just keeps getting bigger and bigger!

Yes, this is an old blue truck with a corvette engine in it.

Emma Kate decided to practice her walking skills.

Dad and I walked down to McAlisters for lunch with Emma Kate just like last year. It was so fun to do the same things as last time but this year Emma Kate is walking!

Below is a picture from this same weekend last year. Crazy how big she has gotten!


After lunch we headed to the store to get grilling supplies for our BBQ that evening. We had a great time relaxing on the back patio grilling and eating and Emma Kate was such a trooper the whole day and didn’t get fussy until just before bedtime.

Sunday morning, dad left right before Bobby and I headed to church.

After church we hung out at the house before attending our church’s annual Fun fest. It’s like a big carnival with jump jumps of all kinds, games the kids can play and win candy, food trucks, puppet show, photo booth, a clown, etc. It’s free to the public, they just ask that you bring some canned goods for their canned food drive.

All the kids dress up in their costumes, and it’s just a really fun family time.

We watched the puppet show, then let Emma Kate practice her walking skills and she thought she was hot stuff walking around the festival. It was so cute.

I had a delicious hot dog from a food truck, and capped off the night with a cheesecake caramel apple. I don’t know about you, but the fact that they will slice it for you at no extra cost is amazing. I haven’t had a caramel apple in years because they are just so gosh darn messy, but this, this I could deal with!

The festival was over at 7:00 so we left a few minutes before since Emma Kate’s bedtime is 7:00 and she was fading fast. She had a very full weekend but was such a trooper. We are loving this new stage!

QOTD: Do you go to any fall festivals? Are you dressing up for Halloween?

  1. Next weekend is all FALL here.
    Fall festival at school. Pumpkin patch and pie baking.
    I cannnnnnot wait.

  2. My son would have died with that Transformers car! He’s obsessed and he’s never even seen a movie! Looks like such a fun weekend. We finally had a weekend where it felt like fall but were out of town for a wedding. Luckily my son got to enjoy some fall festivities with his nani though 🙂

  3. We have a place here that slices the caramel apples too. It makes thing so much easier, and with all the goodies they put on the apple, it can get messy real fast. My favorite caramel apple is with pecans.

  4. No fall festivals here, but we did make a trip to the pumpkin patch. We ask have a block party for the culdesac we live in next weekend.

  5. I just love fall! The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend! Our church had their fall festival yesterday too but we didn’t make it since the boys were tired from camping all weekend and I didn’t get back into town from my race in time. As far as Halloween goes…my boys are dressing up for sure! I’m just wearing my Mickey Halloween shirt! 😉

  6. I can’t lie, when I saw that apple pic over the weekend, I totally thought it was my beloved white chocolate caramel apple pie apple from Disney!

  7. Fun! I’m so glad y’all had a great weekend! It’s amazing how fast things change (from that pic of him and Emma last year to this year)!! I adore this weather!!

  8. wow that caramel apple looks amazing!!!

  9. Looks like a great weekend! Those candy apples are my favourite!

  10. That caramel apple looks phenomenal! And your church outfit is super cute!
