Pumpkin Fest . . . Rainout!

The girls and I went to my parents this weekend for the Pumpkin Festival. Unfortunately, it rained basically the whole weekend! There were some brave people who enjoyed the festival in the rain, but not us.

Luckily, the rain held off Saturday morning until the parade was over. All Lucy could think about was candy and, boy, did we get candy! There were very few kids around us (which is unusual, guess the look of the gray sky kept people away) so people in the parade literally dumped handfuls in front of us. I did a terrible job taking pics - hopefully my mom and sil took some good ones. Here is one of the girls at the parade.
We did have fun hanging out with my parents, brothers, sister-in-law, niece and my grandma. Contessa was so excited to see Norah - it was very cute. On Friday afternoon when Norah got up from her rest time, Contessa squealed and hugged Norah tight!
Maybe next year the weather will be better!

I thought of you guys - that you might be in Morton - like Ron & me! I can certainly attest to the amount of rain that fell on Fri. & Sat. up there . . . as well as this morn. (We drove home in a steady downpour until we got close to Effingham.) It's been many, many years since the whole Pumpkin Festival was almost washed out! What a mess it was. However, it was really nice that there was that window of time that the rain stopped on Sat. morn.- just long enough for the parade! My sisters & I quickly checked out the craft booths, but that was about it.

I'm sure Norah & Lucy loved the parade (I mean the candy!)! What cuties!
