Scarecrow Festival 2013

Nervous about the ball, Sport?
Remember yesterday when I told you I was thinking about going to the Scarecrow Festival today at West Ridge Academy? Well, I finally convinced my sweetie that it would be fun. We had to wait until afternoon since the girls had a dance class and the Drama Queen was still driving. The kids made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and Bossy brought chips and fruit snacks.

About 1:00 we all climbed in the vans. Last year the crowds at the festival were light and the lines were short. This time we almost turned around and headed back home. There were hundreds of people everywhere!

Some of the kids wanted to walk in the big ball, so we put them in line and then  made our picnic on the grass just outside the rope. The lines moved surprisingly fast and by the time we were finished eating they were at the front of the line. They rolled and tumbled in the ball and then popped back out the hole when they were done.

After that Bossy and the Dog Walker had to have their annual bungee contest. They both get pretty serious about this competition. The Dog Walker came out ahead this year although I'm pretty sure Bossy was the winner last year.

Then the little ones were off to the bounce houses while the older people got in line for the munchkin radio wheel. They were giving away passes for free kids' meals, so I thought it would be a great idea. While we were waiting in line, Thriller came on the speakers. Well the Dog Walker wasn't going to pass up a chance to perform and pretty soon he had all of his sisters doing a flash mob dance with him. They were pretty good! He remembered all the moves from the Just Dance version and I don't know if they realized that a hundred people were watching them.

After we got our coupons, we played the carnival games. The kids earned enough tickets to get some cute little rubber ducks dressed in various costumes. We all participated in the last dance competition (we didn't win), and then we had to pack it up. Sport had football practice at 4:30.

He only has two regular league games left. The season has gone so quickly! And Halloween is nearly here. I'll have to take some pics of the Dog Walker's annual light display for you. And you know what? Bossy has an amazing one too! Now if we could just figure out what we are going to do for costumes...
