Scarecrow Festival

So, one day I'm driving down the road and hear this guy on the radio talking about the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point. It sounded like it would be a fun fall activity for the kids. So we decided to go. It was a little pricey, but all in all I'm glad we went.

When we first got there, the kids stood in line for a fun bungee/trampoline ride. They stood in line for a whole hour before they decided to ditch and try something else. Further down the line they had several bounce houses and inflatables. That's where they really had fun. They got off one and right on to another, and so on, and so on.

Luckily for Lexie (and ME) they had a fun little toddler section for 2 and under. They had toys and tunnels and mini pools filled with balls and blocks. I have to say that there aren't very many places that will also cater to toddlers. She threw an absolute fit when it was time to leave the play area.

After all the inflatable fun we went on to the farmyard area where they were having pony rides and "hay rides" without the hay of course. The line was way too long for the pony ride, but we wandered up just in time for the hay ride. The girls had a great time looking at the animals and playing in the little people buildings.

Here is a picture of the jailbirds.

I forgot to mention that they had some people at one of the stops making balloon animals. They were so good. They could make almost ANYTHING! Unfortunately, with all the action, they didn't last long.

I am really glad we had the chance to spend some fun family time together. I like to think that the kids will remember some of the places we take them. If not, at least we have pictures!

Those inflatable bouncy things are awesome for kids! Have you ever taken your girls to the Kagaroo Zoo, or Bouncin' Off the Walls? (Or any indoor bounce place) Our boys love them and my favorite part is that you can get on the stuff as well and play with them.

I've never been to the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point. It looked fun, I think I may have to check it out!

That looks like so much fun, I wish we could have gone with you guys. That is really cool that they had a place for Lu Lu to play, I can see her reaction when you wanted to leave. haha.. poor Lisa. Jamie would have loved playing with Jaelynn in all of that. Lucky Haylee to be able to go with you, that's great.
