More Fall Fun

Yesterday we did the Fall Festival at Whole Foods. My kids loved it! For $29 we got to play a million and two games, we all had dinner there, and my step son and I took advantage of the Happy Hour offerings as well. For a family of 7 (my oldest daughter had better things to do) it was one heck of a deal!

They had a pony and two goats that were so sweet. Way cuter and sweeter than the ones at the zoo, and I think maybe now that I want a goat. How much room do goats need to roam anyway? One of the goats (named Molly, like our dog) walked right up to my one year old and nuzzled her hands and let my daughter rub her head. Bam! Love at first nibble!

They were tricky, Whole Foods, that is, and they failed to advertise the goldfish prizes they were doling out...and I don't mean the snack cracker. My kids won 9 fish. One of the bags broke in the stroller and I had a good laugh as my step son was made to find the escapee and rescue it. I hate fish. I hate fish and I am now the proud owner of a new 10 gallon tank for these gosh darn things.

My oldest son participated in the pie eating contest. He got cherry, his least favourite. I enjoyed watching him eat it, the look on his face after the first bite was priceless. Needless to say, he was not a winner. It was fun though. He assures me the next time he enters a pie eating contest, that he'll find out what flavors the pies are first.

It was a really fun night for all. I'm glad that we went.


  1. Looks like a fun time - and for under $30 it's a bargain!

  2. That is great. We at Homemaker Manor are very jealous.

  3. If you want two very sweet little pygmy goats, they are yours! We are downsizing on all the animals. They are tons of fun though!

  4. Why does ANYONE give out Goldfish??? Where are teh PETA people when you need them?

  5. That picture of your son eating the pie is priceless. Your crew is gorgeous! So you're afraid of lizards, fish, you hate the heat and next you'll probably tell me that you hate DisneyWorld and the ocean. So why do you live in Florida again??

  6. Such a deal! I want to find one like that here! Getting everyone out and about always costs and arm and a leg...

    Sounds like tons of fun -- good for you!
