Halloween Party

Last night was the Halloween potluck down at the barn. After supper they had a hayride with stations set up in the woods for the kids to go trick-or-treating at.

Hayride and Corn Maze

Today the kids and I went to a corn maze here in town and they gave us a hayride before we went into the maze and then when we were done the kids each got an apple to bring home. It was a fun time.

Deerfield Fair

Yesterday we went to the Deerfield fair. Apparently quite a few other people had the same idea as the place was packed. It was a beautiful fall day and there was lots to do and see there. We saw a magician show, a flying circus act, some tractor pulling and went on some rides. Oh, I almost forgot, we ate that healthy fair food. My favorite was the fried dough with maple icing and powda sugar. It was a fun day!!

Weekend Project

A couple of weekends ago we added this brick area outside the door at the end of the garage. The bricks are from an old chimney or something that was torn down at my parents house years ago and then dumped in a pile in the woods. So I decided to do something with them and had just enough decent bricks for this little area. I had done the little stonewalls for the planting areas earlier this summer. It was fun to finally finish up that end of the house.

Kids
