Neighborhood Fall and Safety Fest

This was pretty cool--all for free and right around the corner. They had three inflatables (anyone else marvel that kids will wait eagerly in line to be "eaten" by an inflatable caterpillar and then climb through to be caterpillar poo?), an ambulance, a fire truck with safety demos, some cool games for prizes and candy, and free food.

In case you wonder at the number of children in the pictures...John had to work Saturday, so I was going to take the kids, all in their Halloween-that-we-don't-actually-celebrate-costumes. Then on our way out, our neighbor kids and their friends (they hang out at our house nearly daily) asked if they could come. So all eight of us walked up (yes, that's a 1:7 adult to child ratio. I think my prego brain must have failed on the math or something). But we did have a good time, and only about 20-30 minutes could have been considered utter chaos. Baden dressed as a fireman, so he was T-H-R-I-L-L-E-D to get in the fire truck.

The crew. As if the cloth diapers didn't seal it, yes, I may be nuts.

Contrary to the picture, Corinne loves to hang out with Jada, 8.
