I took the kids to Whitney's Farm today for their first annual Corn Fest. We got there about 10:30 this morning & didn't leave till almost 3. My mom, sister & her family, My friend Kimmy & her daughter & my friend Sam & her family also went with us. There was a huge bouncy slide, pony rides, corn shucking contest, corn eating contest for both kids & adults, sack races & corn husk doll making. The kids had a blast! They were also serving 3 different kinds of corn & corn chowder for free all day! I love free stuff! I was in the corn shucking contest & tied for third place with my brother-in-law. Boy that certainly gave my arms a workout! We both won a ten dollar gift certificate to Whitney's store. Lauren, Braedon, Alora & Colby all entered the corn eating contest. Lauren won first prize! She ate 9 ears of corn! I couldn't believe it. Her prize was a ten dollar gift card to Walmart. I was pretty impressed with my little buddy, Braedon, he ate 3 ears of corn. I thought that was pretty darn good for a 3 year old! They all did the sack races & Lauren won again. But she was a very generous girl today & gave it to Colby, cause he was upset he didn't get first. I was really proud of her for that! Poor Braedon though he was crying because he was to little for the sack & couldn't keep up with the rest of them. He was so sad it broke my heart, but hugs from mommy made him better. Here are some pics from the day.
These are the corn husk dolls my girls made.

Brae on the pony, he was so serious as he rode him.
We had a good day with family & friends. We ended our night with dinner at my mom's. Now I need to get ready for another long day tomorrow, we are taking the kids to Lake Compounce Amusement Park in CT. I'm sure I'll have some pics to post tomorrow night.
