Pumpkin Fest

Fall is here!  It's here, it's here! 
This is my absolute favorite time of year!  Today I got to enjoy some early fall goodness with two of my best buddies!  We went to the Pumpkin Festival in Morton.
 Katie and Marcy enjoying some pumpkin ice cream.
 Mmmm apple cider slush.  Beware of the brain freeze with this one.
 My feelings after discovering that instead of the pumpkin donut I had requested, in my brown paper bag, I had a very sad looking pumpkin chocolate chip face cookie instead.
 They had rides.  Nope!
My long awaited bowl of "pumpkin" chili.  I'd been hearing about this for years and finally got to try some this year.  The verdict?  Wasn't super impressed and didn't taste anything pumpkin-y about it.  But it was still pretty good.

After lunch we decided to head back home, until we discovered that we couldn't remember where we'd parked.  So after walking around Morton for an hour, calling friends we'd followed into town with no luck, I had to text my friend Jordan to get a number of other friends who had parked near us. (My hero!)  Guess we walked off the ice cream and chili! 

Awesome memories!

What's your favorite thing about fall?  Anybody else go to pumpkin festival yet?
