Miscellany Monday--Pumpkin Festival Ed.

 Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

On friday..hubby and I met up with his daughter (my step-daughter) Beth and we all went to the Pumpkin Festival together!!  It was great to not only see Beth again and spend some time together..but to go to the festival too, of course!!

While there..we saw the HUGE pumpkins that were raised locally that they always have on display!  I always wish so badly I could raise some like that..WOW..that would make quite the impression by the front door of your home..don't you think?!

We also ate some of the fabulous pumpkin ice cream!  It was Beth's first taste of the stuff..and she seemed to like it pretty well!  I'm kinda wishing now I had tried the pumpkin dumplin'..I'd tried it a few years ago but I think they re-developed the recipe cause I thought I saw the sign say it was made with a cinnamon roll!  Yum!

Of course we looked around at all the crafts and vendors that were set up (my favorite part!).  Beth had a blast making a stuffed animal..a wolf-ish dog if  you will.  She named him Wolfie.  And yes...she's 24..still the kid at heart which is what makes her so much fun to be around!

Lots of great photo ops at the festival..I am still wishing I had taken more pictures while there!  But we took most of the pictures by the mum display they had set up..very pretty!  They had a mini pumpkin display set up not far from there, but of course tons parents were busy snapping photos of the kiddos in that we couldn't quite get in! 

We really had a great day on friday..and weekend too since Damon was off the entire weekend..woohoo!  We also did some shopping at a local mall..ate out at Chili's..and lounged around the house for the rest of the weekend!  Now if the weather around here would just go back to feeling like fall!  With temps in the 80s the past couple of days..its feeling more like summer!  Bring on the cool stay this time..please!

  1. OMG!! Girl, you went to the Pumpkin Festival?!?! I'm so jealous! Milton is just about 30 minutes from my hometown of Huntington! My grandma used to take me and my cousins there every year - I have such great memories of the pumpkin festival. Both my parents were there this year too! Glad ya'll had fun!!!!

  2. Wow! It looks like yall had a fabulous time! I wish we had fall festivals here but we just don't! Which is sad because fall is my favorite time of year! Pumpkin ice cream sounds sooo good. I love those big pumpkins..I told my girls we should plant some pumpkin seeds and just see what would happen. It could be fun!
    Love your blog!

  3. Looks like so much fun!!! I hear ya with the weather. I'm ready to get my sweaters out, but I was in a sundress for the wedding Sunday. Ridiculous!

  4. What a wonderful time you all had! Those pumkins are amazing and I, too, am waiting for some cooler weather.
