Scarecrow Festival

Last weekend we went to a Scarecrow Festival at the Gardens at Thanksgiving Point.
Lots of scarecrows were brought in by different people or organizations, a lot from different departments at Thanksgiving Point.  It was fun to see what people came up with.
As we walked down the hill, Jr. Jr. kept exclaiming, "Wow.  There are so many scarecrows.  Why are there so many scarecrows?"  We had to keep telling him, "It's because this is the Scarecrow Festival."
One of the scarecrows was advertising the upcoming Dia de Los Muertos celebration this coming Friday and Saturday (October 23-24) at the Show Barn.  I thought that was a clever way of advertising it.
They had other activities going on, though they had to take the bounce houses down because of the weather.

We also finally got our chance to check out the Temple of Artemis Garden, new because of the "Wonders of the World" this Summer.

Because of the drizzly rain, when we went home we had hot chocolate, grilled cheese sandwiches, and tomato bisque from a can.
It was a good family day.
