Valas is always the highlight of our October, fall, festivities. This year we went twice! These pictures are of the second time when UP treats us to admission and lunch there. Earlier in the month we went when it was warmer and we got a homeschool discount. Those picts are at the end.
How Tall this Fall? The boys keep growing!
Six kids is not "so many children" but it's a cute picture anyway.
The parade of Saints...
We had St Philomena, St Pio, St Dominic, St Tarsisis, and Francis of Assisi
Zachary was St Francis of Assisi
Oh the bargaining and trading that went on after reaping all the candy they could..
It's all part of the experience of Halloween.
The following photos were from earlier in the month but for some reason they are at the end.
We tried our hands at dipping our own carmel apples this year. Actually it was Blaise and I doing all the work. They sure were good.
Our Classical Conversations Campus took advantage of a discounted day for homeschoolers and rented some shelters at Valas. This was earlier in the month when it was much warmer. Admission was half off and included a train ride and an 8# pumpkin. We saw people we knew everywhere we looked. We ended up staying for the campfire at night too. So fun!
