Last weekend Caroline and I were able to go to an amazing pumpkin festival. Adam was studying and wasn't able to go, so we drove up with the Fish family which was fun. The drive up was beautiful and we drove through many quaint little towns. There were a lot of other families that came as well. There were over 25,000 lit pumpkins that lined the main street of Keene. People send their pumpkins from all over the country to be displayed at the festival. The smell of the lit pumpkins was such a delightful scent to take in. There were two gigantic pumpkins towers and then risers with pumpkins on them throughout the streets. We even got to see fireworks at the end, one of my favorite things. Caroline kept saying, "There's magic in the sky mom!" My pictures don't do the event justice, but you'll get the idea.
Some of the great families: The Fish's, the Gardner's, and the Stringham's. The Dortch's, Krueger's, and Mecham's were also there, but they were out enjoying the pumpkins, taking someone to the potty, or standing in line for a delicious pumpkin treat.
