We made it a tradition to visit Gardner Village when all the witches are out. Makes for some great photos. However, Emma is so crazy half the time...this is what we ended up with this year.

Come Halloween you will see Emma decked out in her Dorothy Costume. And the best of all is that Diggy will play Toto. Perfect!

"There is no place like home"
More Like there is no freaking place that carries Ruby Red Slippers. I had to call every target, wal mart and Payless and bid on every Ebay pair until I finally found them. Yea, My Halloween is complete.
Thank You Target!

Emma has had a couple firsts in the last month.
Emma took her first ride at lagoon on her own. Well she was sat with a couple other kids who i felt really bad for...they did not really enjoy the ride and neither did Emma.

Well just stick to her new slide from now on. She can handle this ride.

Crossroads, the jumbo slide and footlong corndogs...YES!

We headed out early so we could visit the animals before the band, Crossraods went on. Emma has been learning about Farm Animals. The whole time we heard didnt even matter what the animal was...they all said MOO!

We are Crossroads Groupies...especially Emma. She loves to see her Grandpa and Aunt Mandy on Stage. "They Rocked" as Greg put it.

After the performance, a footlong corndog, french fries, some BAD homemade rootbeer and Gregs visit with a few carnies we slid down the Jumbo Slide to end our night. Yee Haw! Cant wait until next Year.
