Change of Plans

People had told us about this amazing Farm to take our kids to for hayrides, food, pumpkins, etc. We were in our car and heading that way (about a 30 min drive) when we saw a sign in our neighborhood for a Fall Festival at a local elementary school (5 minutes away). We ended up changing our plans that had literally been planned for at least a week :) We had promised to take Micah to a pumpkin patch, so we headed to one nearby our home...and took some fun pictures.
And then we were on our way to the Fall Festival. We had no idea what to expect and thought it might be a little too old for Micah, but it was perfect. There definitely were some things that he wasn't ready for, but there was plenty to do for a 2 1/2 yr old, and I mean plenty.

First we stopped by the petting zoo where there were a lot of animals: goats, sheep, bunnies, dogs, chickens, dogs, cats, etc. We took tons of pictures, but don't want to bore you, so I'll just show you a few...
Then we headed to the arts and crafts area-a little too young but enjoyed all the music and busyness going on in the cafeteria.
YES! FACE-PAINTING!! And of course he just had to be BATMAN. He sat really still and did great keeping those eyes shut tight.
The cutest Batman ever (I know, I'm biased!).
Checking himself out. Quite proud.
Crazy family.
And then we found the outside fun! There were tons and tons of games and blowup jumping machines-a kids paradise! Micah tried out every single one at least one time.
One happy, but tired boy. Needless to say, he slept wonderfully that afternoon :) We will definitely be heading back there next year. Such a fun day and we didn't regret our change of plans at all.
