LHBC Fall Fesitval

My adorable giraffes made a second appearance last weekend, to visit Lakota Hill’s Fall Fesitval on Sunday evening (after the longest day ever, including running out of gas in the Shell parking lot (but on a hill, to where I had to fill an empty winshield wiper fluid bottle with gas (all the while reading something about danger and “unauthorized containers”) and trapse over to my car to dump in 0.852 gallons in the tank (spilling some on myself, of course) in order to get up the hill. That wasn’t the worst part of the day).

Anyway, the evening was nice. The girls got to try out the Roller Coaster that Kyle & I have planned to get our children for their second birthday (or, perhaps, an 18-month-old’s Christmas) since before I was pregnant with said children.

They liked it (and who wouldn’t?).

They got to play the duck pond game again, though really they weren’t impressed with it because they really just wanted to keep the “duckies(!)”.

They ate cookies, won a couple of cupcakes at the cakewalk, and didn’t eat any dinner (there!) because they refused anything we gave them that resembled ‘real’ food.

They recreated a picture from last Halloween, with what appears to be surprisingly little improvement in the gross motor skill, “sitting”.

And they played in the leaves with Aunt Cassi.

The best part of the evening though (x2) was the “hayride”. I think if they were in the 5+ set they would have been unimpressed, but to my 1 year olds, this was the coolest hayride EVER.

They absolutely, absolutely loved it.

Aren’t they adorable?!
