Festival fun

So we decided on a whim Friday night that we wanted to purchase our Halloween pumpkins this weekend.

Kates launched an internet search for some pumpkin places and came up with Pumpkin Fest in St. Joseph. The website promoted it as a family-friendly event, and it sounded like it might be fun ...

So yesterday afternoon we loaded up the car and set out for St. Joseph in hopes of finding the perfect pumkin for Phoebe ... But there were no pumpkins for sale at Pumpkin Fest. Go figure.

There was, however, a good ol' fashioned downtown festival full of craft tables for the kids, food vendors, carnival rides and tents with wares of all kinds. Phoebe got her face painted and she rode the carousel ...

Two things made her day, though. Bouncing and a purple monkey.

We wore her out. And she slept  all the way home.
