A full day of family fall fun!!

So I know I've been MIA lately.  Things around the Billings' Household have been busy, busy, busy! 

We did manage to enjoy a day of family fun this weekend.

For the past few years we have gone with my parents to the Reelfoot Fall Festival/Arts & Crafts Fair. This year Aunt Sherry went with us. We have always enjoyed it, and this year we had tons of fun again!!

We walked over and saw the eagles, owls, and hawks.

We walked along the boardwalk to the lake.  The kids always love this part!  They make me a little nervous cause they want to run ahead of us. 

Notice anything strange here?  Yes, if you noticed that Anna Beth has on JEANS, then you guessed right!!!!

This might be my favorite picture from the entire day.

Not sure what Anna Beth is doing here.  Yes, Sammy's face is black.  He's Batman!!!

So after we walked around the festival and the kids were all worn out from walking, we drove up to Kentucky and waited on the ferry....

We drove our cars onto the ferry. We ran into a friend of mom's from work (Ms. Phyllis), and her daughter and grandkids decided to join us on the day of fun!  Boy- did we have fun!

It was a little chilly riding the ferry.  We all eventually sat in our cars.  Btw- it is a very wierd feeling to sit in the car and know that you are moving, but the car isn't actually moving. 

Our next stop:  Diebold Orchard and Greenhouse.
This is the second time we have gone here to stock up on pumpkins and mums  They have an amazing variety of pumpkins and the biggest mums you have ever seen, not to mention the best prices!

This little matey couldn't wait to get to "pumpkin city"

Next Stop:

Does anyone drive through the bootheel of Missouri and not stop at Lamberts??  I think not!



tuckered out pirate
Caught Grand-Daddy off guard, but how bout that okra?!?!

And last but not least, it wouldn't be a trip to Lamberts without this....
We all ate several rolls and stuffed our bellies full of yummy food.  It was a great day all around!!
