Alrighty....I'm home from a wonderful trip out west, so I've decided to post about the Pumpkin Festival, which happened before my trip, but I never got around to posting about it. So, while I go through all of the pictures that were taken this past week, please enjoy the pictures below!

At the Pumpkin Festival, our church had a booth to let people know about our upcoming Reformation Day Faire, as well as to take part in the festivities. Many of our church families were there as well, which always makes fairs and carnivals more exciting. Another detail which made the weekend just wonderful, was that Desert Skies Band was in town, playing at the festival and then at church on Sunday afternoon. For those of you who haven't heard of Desert Skies Band, you really ought to check out their website and listen to their music. Homeschooling family with an amazing story! We had a wonderful time getting to know them better and hope they come back our way very soon. :)

Good friends and sisters standing in line for Pumpkin Ice Cream.

Hannah sees a ride she wants to go on.

The little man is loving his ice cream...that is, until his throat started hurting.

The Rock-a-Plane...'twas the ride that made me sick!

Wouldn't that make you sick?

My favorite ride, known as "The Couch" at the Turkey Festival, at the Pumpkin Festival they called it "Ali Babba."

Ooooooo....cotton candy!

Caleb's Sunday birthday cheesecake.

Desert Skies preformed during the Pumpkin Festival.

Six girls on violins...wonderful music!

Sierra shares a smile.

Grace and Abby were so happy to spend the afternoon with Natalie.

The girls are all set to go on the "roller coaster."

You see those arms waving madly? Those belong to the girls.

Mrs. Haroldson strummin' on her six string...I honestly have no idea how many strings are on that just sounded right. :)

They sing. They play. Do they dance?

A lovely Sunday afternoon with fantastic music...what could be better?

Miss Jocelyn played "Bile Them Cabbage Down" for Em is inspired to learn the violin!

Making new friends.

Em, Grace and Jocelyn having a good time.
