Max and the amazing, awesome, no bad, very good day
Max's entire school was invited to a local farm for Saturday fun. Dave took Sabrina to swim class, so I had Max all to myself. There was a big white tent set up with hot cider, hot dogs and donuts; an outdoor fireplace for toasting marshmallows; a big blow-up slide; pony rides; clowns; face-painting; pumpkin picking; you name it.
Doesn't Max sort of look like the Marlboro Man?
Max did a good job of balancing, but he also loved falling down.
He kept asking for more once the ride was over.
He was a little afraid of the hayride, so this nice guy named Victor drove us to the pumpkin field in his pickup truck.
Max charmed Maryann the clown.
Max was quite the social butterfly, going up to all the kids he recognized from school, pointing them to the pony ride, kicking balls around with them. Hmmm....good looks, charming, likes to mingle—maybe he's destined to be a politician.
Eternal thanks to John and his lovely family for hosting all of us. It was a day we'll never forget.
What sort of fun fall stuff have you been doing with your kids?
