Grant's Farm and Monday Makeover

Sunday October 3rd, we went to church. We started a new series called Unfrozen: How the prayer of Jesus changes us. This week was about the opening words of The Lord's Prayer. Kaitlynn attended the KidzMinistry.

We spent the rest of the afternoon at Grant's Farm. Tia, Annabelle and Alayna met us there. It was a special day at Grant's Farm. On the tram ride, we found out that they were doing free pictures with a Clydesdale (as long as you had your own camera) and free Budweiser in the aluminum bottles (as well as the usual free 2 samples per person 21 and over).
This is not the greatest video, but there is a cute shot of Kaitlynn and Annabelle. The Flip software is still not fixed so I can't get still pictures from the video.
Here is a video of the Clydesdale we had our picture taken with. We have a video shot of us in front of the Clydesdale, but again I can't get a still picture out of it because the Flip software is not working.

Riding the carousel
After the carousel ride and looking at some animals (and petting a box turtle that one of the workers had out for the kids to see and pet), the girls had a snowcone. They no longer have Kaitlynn's favorite, Tiger's Blood, so she just got a red one, which I think was strawberry or something. It was a gorgeous day! Kaitlynnn had so much fun with Annabelle!

Monday, the 4th I babysat Max. He went with Kaitlynn and I to Monday Makeover at church. We had a huge group - 4 moms and 9 kids. It was chaos!

Later, Kaitlynn attended a doctor's appointment with me. We had Chinese for dinner and my fortune said "an unexpected event will soon make your life more exciting." Dave had a late softball game, so Kaitlynn and I didn't go.

Family Circus and Fall Fest

Saturday, October 2nd, Kaitlynn and I went to the Family Christian Store for the Veggie Tales Premiere. Kaitlynn colored some pictures while I looked around. She also got a couple Veggie Tales' balloons. We went to another store before coming home. Kaitlynn got the Sleeping Beauty barbie.

Dave, Kaitlynn and I went to Morning Star Church for the Family Circus. It was a fun, free event. Kaitlynn bounced in a bounce house, petted the animals at the petting zoo,

rode a pony, participated in a book walk a few times, played the duck pond game, played the lollipop pull game, got attendance / game prizes, did a craft (made a star) while I waited in line for her to do a tye-dyed shirt and
made a tye-dyed shirt. We had a great time and wished we had arrived earlier than we did!

After the circus, we picked up MawMaw and went to Concord Baptist Church's Fall Festival. Kaitlynn checked out the fire truck and didn't want to leave it. She normally doesn't take as much interest in fire trucks.

She also liked the ambulance. She really enjoyed exploring the fire truck and the ambulance and asking questions about them.
She had a balloon animal made. She asked for a bunny and they said they couldn't make it. Then she asked for a goat, but they couldn't do that either. So she settled for a brown dog.
Kaitlynn had her face painted like a dog as well, at least that's what it was supposed to be!

We ate some lunch.
She rode a pony.
She played some games and won lots of candy. We had a fun time, it was just really chilly.

Afterwards we went to dinner at Pasta House.
