We had our second wonderful family filled weekend in preparation for our Halloween extravaganza!
We started at Hudson and Presley's soccer game. They took turns as goalies and they both play hard! It is fun to watch!
I love how the YMCA encourages good sportsmanship and positive motivation to all of the kids. It is so much more fun to me than the programs that are so competitive and make kids feel bad about themselves when everything doesn't turn out perfectly...it is just a game after all!
Next, we were off to daughter #2s and then on to the pumpkin patch and Scarecrow Row in Alachua.
This is a tradition we started when Hannah was just a baby. Can't believe she is a freshman in college already... where does the time go?
I love this little town. It is always so seasonal and, of course with this being my favorite season, I love everything about it. The local businesses create scarecrows using the year's theme and somehow tying into their business. We always take pictures with a few of our favorites but we ALWAYS must check them all out!
Next, we were on to High Springs and dinner at "the Great Outdoors". Sorry, I was barred from taking pictures (not by the restaurant, by my family lol), but we had a fabulous meal and then headed home to watch the Gator game...perhaps we should have stayed at the patch a bit longer. Tough game - really hard to watch, but as I said earlier in this post, it IS only a game.
We headed home this afternoon and are now enjoying more of this simply perfect autumn weather before starting a new week.Lots more to go to be ready for the extravaganza. Stay tuned.
