Fall Fun Day 2014

We had a great Fall weekend! On Saturday we had family pictures taken and all I can say about that is I hope we have one good picture. Haley was not having any part of cooperating with us. We had a big cold front move in on Friday and it was cool on Saturday morning and very windy. I think she just didn't like the cold and being out in the wind. It was a very brief shoot. OH well that is how it goes with can prep and coordinate outfits but you cannot control how they will do when the time comes for the pictures. LOL

Saturday afternoon I got to head off to a Barn Sale in town with my Mom, sister-in-law and friend. I got some goodies and had a big time shopping sans kids. LOL

So on Sunday we had our annual Fun Day with our church friends at a member's home. These folks are always so gracious and hospitable to open up their home and land for us to all enjoy. We had 3 inflatables, corn hole and horse shoe tournaments, a corn crib, hay ride, pumpkin decorating, FOOD and a devotional all in one day. In Jonah's words toward the end of the day "best day ever!"

Here are some of the pictures I got. (Haley left early to take a nap at Nana's house so we could stay and play with Jonah some more. Thanks Nana!!)

Charlie (the homeowner) made this corn crib from hay bales and corn (he harvests a lot of corn on his farm) for the kids to play in. I think he originally made it for some of the smaller kids to play in but turns out the bigger teenage kids were in it most of the day. LOL

Jonah wore himself out on the inflatables. He played in them all day long. He just kept going and going like the energizer bunny.

This was one of the larger inflatables that had a bouncer and a slide. There was an obstacle course one too.

The back of their house where we all hung out and ate.

Charlie knows how to do a hayride with this set up!

The homeowners have 3 girls (adult twins and a senior in high school) and they all love riding horses. This is their beautiful horse barn down behind their house. Below is their youngest daughter that gave rides to the little kids on her horse. It was Jonah's first time to ride a horse too!

View from the road of their beautiful home! Country living at it's finest.

A cute little piggy.

The young men in our congregation did the evening devotional and decided to use 3 haybales stacked up as their pulpit. :)

A tired Daddy and Jonah.

Me and my boy!
