It Was Cold


Another Fall Festival in the books for 2009. It was cold, the high temperature for the day was 46 and the low was 31, plus the wind was blowing. Normal high for KC on this date is 72. Needless to say it was freezing for everyone. The theme this year was Fall on the Farm, hence the tractor pics and so many people wearing their western wear and cowboy boots.

Despite the temperatures everyone that showed up appeared to really have fun. We had a big fire and that proved to be the most popular spot in the yard. Maybe even more popular than the food tables. Even with it being cold people still played games like kids, and some of them were actually kids.

If you are interested the photos are posted at our flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/15120866@N05/sets/72157622570799408/
ps.: can you believe that is the same baby as in our profile picture?

YAY! I am so glad it went well (despite the cold). No I can't believe that's the same baby! She's gotten so big and is adorable! I am off to view your photos...

Oh yeah - I believe it... she's a darling, looks to be about same age as our grandson :-) We took him to State Fair of Texas last week - and it was cold! So we ate... Fried Butter... and it was good. (And it was not fried butter, really)... Only in Texas, maybe.

Heading to look at pictures, too. Glad to see your smiles

So glad to know that you enjoyed yourself. My Oktoberfest is this Saturday. Sadly, my son won't be there.
Enjoy life. Precious baby. So much innocence.
