First Fall Festival

After keeping Marino home since Tuesday evening when he started getting sick, we were ready to get out of the house by Saturday. We determined he had Roseola and by Saturday the rash was on its second day and he was fever-less for 24 hours. So we met up with Jen and her family at Cox Farms in Virginia. We went last year on opening weekend and had a great time. This year we had great weather but, unfortunately, a very cranky boy. Luckily, there are many more fall festivals to attend - I love them all!

We did have some fun, in spite of the crankiness. We went down slides, pet some goats, walked through the corn maze and got to visit with our friends in the sunshine.

Marino wore his new Halloween initial shirt, made by my buddy Jill.

Sydney was dressed festive as well.

Marino and Daddy in the corn maze (can you tell the boy is cranky?)
He really liked this ant (I think it reminded him of his current favorite movie "A Bug's Life")

And sliding on his own (he looked terrified but wanted to go again)
