Friday night was the annual Fall Festival at Michael's school. This was our first year attending as he just started Kindergarten there. There was a lot for the kids to do there. We bought tickets to go on rides and play games. They had a bounce house as well as a bounce slide. Michael really enjoyed the slide and Katie got upset that she could not go on the slide too. She likes the slide but cannot climb up by herself.
The kids got to see and climb up inside a fire truck. The firefighters showed them the different equipment and how to use it. There was also a "pumpkin patch" set up in front of the school. Inside they were doing photos and fingerprints. The book fair was also going on in the library and Katie & Michael each got to pick out a book. The whole family got to go on a hayride around the school parking lot.
Katie's favorite thing to do was the lollipop tree. For one ticket, she could choose any lollipop from the "tree". She was in heaven. Michael's favorite thing was the bull riding. He got to sit up high and spin around before being thrown from the bull. Thankfully it didn't go too fast.
It was definitely a fun night and we look forward to doing it again next year.
