Harvest Festival, Nampa Style

This was Tom's first time to our church's
Harvest Festival.
He had plenty of escorts to show him
ALL fun activities.
Kimmy and me

The Harvest Festival was held
 on a huge farm.
Plenty of room for so many activities.
Carmel apples
Carmel corn
Hot cider
(and after all the activities
we had a Chili Feed.)

Kimmy helping Ila May
Art Activities:
Paper pumpkin decorating

Ila May and Levi
Horse Rides

For some, it was a pretend cow
but Silas didn't care!

Individual  Activities:
Bow and Arrows

 And then there were the
Relay Races
 (for ALL ages)
Wheelbarrow races

Sack Relay
That's Lulu on the right!
Go Lulu Go!
Baton Relay
Go Levi Go!

The last and BIGGEST contest was the
Tug of  War!
Above,Girls vs Girls
The younger and smaller girls were waiting their turn, while the older girls were pulling hard.

Everyone had a turn because
 the categories were vast. 
Dads vs. Dad
Dads vs Boys
Boys vs. Boys
But the most anticipated was the "famous"
Mom's vs. Sons
The above picture is the mom's 
working hard, to show their strength.
Everyone was yelling & cheering them on!
Mom's won!
So much FUN!

Kids gave kids wagon rides.

Later, there were Hayrides.


Every year there is a Pie Contest.
Only Apple or Pumpkin!

Lulu entered last year and decided to try again.

Here are the judges, taste testing all the pies.

Guess who won 1st Place 
for her Apple Pie?
Lulu did!!

We all had so much fun, 
kicking up our heels!
Looks like someone went a little over board.

    Anyway... here's to hoping you have a wonderful week!

  7. Enjoyed your pictures, what a great time everyone had and I would love to eat some of that pie.

  8. Oh, how fun! What a wonderful event. It takes a lot of planning and work to pull off something like this. My hat's off to the coordinators. Lulu is so cute. I love the photo of her with her ribbon. You can just sense her delight; it radiates from that picture. Congratulations to Lulu!!

  9. It looks like so much fun for all, Christine. I bet you were all a bit worn out! Lulu baking pies already? Super!

  10. That looks like so much fun! A good old fashion church party. I love it! Growing up, my church had an all church camping weekend and I have such fond memories of that! You just can't find that here in the city.
