Fall Fun

Happy Hump Day! Are you ready for Halloween? I'm not sure what is happening with trick-or-treating tomorrow. The forecast is not good... 90% chance of rain. Boo!

Our side porch is ready for trick-or-treaters...

And the ghosts have reappeared...

We went to Chicago a couple of weekends ago for the kids' Fall Break. On the way there, we stopped at Fair Oaks Farm in Fair Oaks, Indiana.

We took the kids to the birthing barn, and we were able to see 3 calves being born. Twin girls...

which is pretty rare. Only 6% of the pregnancies result in twins. And, this big boy...

who weighed 110 pounds. The poor mama! It took 2 men pulling with all their might to get him out. One of the workers said this was the biggest calf he'd seen. And, there are calves being born every half hour at this place!

This was such an amazing thing to witness. I highly recommend Fair Oaks Farm if you ever find yourself in Northern Indiana. Their grilled cheese sandwiches and milk shakes are darn good, too. :)

Last weekend, I took my 13 year old to Nashville, TN. His band played an acoustic set downtown on Broadway and made $185 in an hour. Not too shabby :)

(The kid with the sax is mine.)

They played at Pumpkinfest in Franklin, TN on Saturday. It was a really cool festival with food, music, games, and vendors. I bought myself some "utensil" jewelry. 

A ring and a bracelet made out of 1930s spoons... love!

In between running kiddos around the country, I'm working on a few decorating projects. I'll share soon. 

Have a safe, dry Halloween. Hope you get lots of treats!!


  1. Sounds like you've had some really fun events going on over there! So cool that your son has his own band at his age!
