Camping at Beaver Dam

The day after trick-or-treating, we packed up the suv and headed to Beaver Dam with the Post's. They invited us to their campsite for two evenings of fun. 

These boys are spoiled rotten. They had a blast camping.

There was a nice play area for the kids.

The campground provided a hayride, costume contest and trick-or-treating one evening. 
It was too cold to dress the boys up in their costumes, but we took advantage of it all.

This little man keeps us warm all the time. 

Some pics of Cameron and Jude by the fire at night.

Roasting some food.

The mama's taught these boys how to be pros at air hockey. 

Montage of Jude. We recreated a pic from 2011 in his Carhart hat. He's still as precious.

The wonderful colors of autumn at Eureka Springs. 

Thanks so much for a really fun weekend Dustin, Ashley and Cameron!!!

October in NWA

We've had such a wonderful autumn that it's hard to believe it is almost over. The weather was beautiful and the Ozark colors did not disappoint. Here are a few things we did in October, besides the wonderful Covered Bridge Festival...which deserves it's own post next month!

These two pictures - best friends and family...nothing better!

Jude did a little pumpkin carving with Cameron and Gavin .

We finally tried Fast Lanes in Rogers. It was so much fun!! John's company had their Halloween party there, so we got to enjoy Jude's first bowling experience (he LOVED it) along with arcade games. 

John and I took a trip to Missouri to visit Right Choices Pumpkin Patch. Well worth the trip! This will be our go to annual pumpkin patch. Obviously we picked pumpkins and ran through a huge corn maze.

John the scarecrow and Jude the sunflower.

Enjoying his favorite snack - pickles!
All three of us on the cow train. By far the cutest little train for kids to visit the corn field.

This was the best. It was called the Corn Jump and it felt like we jumped for hours.

Hayride through the woods, a corn bin where Jude got a little rowdy and a really fun slide.

Haystacks everywhere, a little pumpkin basketball and a duck pump. Don't was awesome.

We highly recommend this place!!!

Oh, and of course - Halloween! A little vampire princess and 50 Shades of Grey for a party.

And the main event - Jude the Scarecrow. It rained a lot, but we got enough candy to 
last until next year...when Jude will probably be another Wizard of Oz character.
