We began the weekend by attending the Leawood Fall Festival on Friday night. Our evening started off wonderfully. The kids had their faces painted and had fun on all of the inflatables.
I forgot socks and this was the result. Check out Black Foot sliding down the big slide.
****Side Note*** My son has no fear. At all. He has been going down these huge slides since he was 20 months old. No fear, I say.
Will's best friend Rachel joined us for the fun. Will loves being with her, except when he's afraid that she's checking out his food.
Nothing says Fall more than having your dinner on a haybale.
She didn't win that time either. So here comes parent dilemma #526. Do we make her quit and teach her that winning isn't everything and that it was fun just to participate? Or do we let her go on and teach her that sometimes you have to work hard and keep trying for what you want? Or does her super competitive mother keep pushing her until she wins? What do you think happened?
On try #8.......... TA DA!
Our family was so happy that we stayed for the big movie they were showing on the lawn. It was a great evening.
The next morning we woke up ad drive to Weston, Missouri. Oh my goodness, what a great town. I have to go back there some day when there aren't a ton of people there for a Fall Festival. I want to go and just soak in the quaint little town with the adorable main street and rich history. I absolutely loved it. We got there early to watch the parade.
The parade was so much fun to watch, but by far the best float was the random float with middle aged men playing Middle Eastern music. In the middle of Missouri. I don't know why. But they were all kinds of awesome.
Here are some other shots from our morning in Weston.
And then what did we do next? Come on, we're Websters. We rode horses of course. Check out the size of the one Bennett got to ride. This was her biggest horse yet. That's me waving in the background. In case you needed me to explain that. Doesn't she look like awesome riding this horse? I was so proud of her.
And then we came home to eat freshly made pumpkin muffins and watch this-
