Fall Fest '09 and Happy Diwali!!

Last saturday, my kids' school put on a great Fall Fest, and the weather even cooperated for most of the day. My dad had also come to visit, so all of us trekked on over to the school as soon as there was a break in the clouds.

Like last year, they had a petting zoo and pony rides, and even had a camel ride. My oldest son had ridden the camel last year and loved it, so he was practically first in line for another ride this year. He rode with my dad. Then, my youngest was watching and decided he wanted to ride too, but only if I would go with him. So the two of us went....and then he decided that camel rides were not for him. :)

Fortunately there were lots of other interesting games and such that kept his attention until it was time to go.
Last saturday was also the Indian holiday of Diwali,
or the Festival
of Lights. We went to a friend's house to celebrate with them, and I wore a saree for the first time in forever. I'd almost forgotten how to put it on. :)

We had intended to set off fireworks later that evening, but the kids were so tired that we ended up going straight to bed. Anyone know if fireworks will keep until July?? :)

Very cool Spidy costumes. I really loved the little girl with the wings.
