Scarecrow Festival/Freak Show!


Our annual trip to the Scarecrow Festival. Apparently, an extra dose of freakies on a Saturday!! First, a back story: The Westridge Academy puts on this fest every year. I guess it's like a bad kid's ranch. WHATEVER! I guess some people no-likey, cause there was a car parked outside with a " WWJB: Who Would Jesus Beat?" Poster. I ran into a couple of kids who I'd like Jesus to beat! Apparently, they were new recruits. Some dumb-a$$ doing back flips onto the bouncey things with LITTLE kids underneath? And when we objected, he said, "I work here!" Duh. So Greg went and got an older kid to come drag little dummy off the ride.
I'm soooooo over protesters! ALWAYS, a "SHAME ON So-and-so" poster wherever we go. Let us pay our 5 bucks without any guilt please....





Here's Harper having a good old time in the stroller...


















And here's witchy-poo standing guard at the little kids' haunted house. REALLY busy texting and drinking a coke, but luckily there's a fire extinguisher nearby incase of spontaneous combustion..... really lady? You can't even look up? Do you know who's going in there? Greg saw some pre-teen dancers trying to avoid a feel-up by some shady boys lurking in the shadows.... and the SMELL!!! Why does everyone have to smell like rotten feet and B.O.????



















AND, here's my boy, in a pit of germs, loving every second of it. Next year, we're going on a week day. If it's still skanky, we're DONE!!! I can make my own damn cinnamon almonds at home!

Sounds like a blast! Hopefully next year will be better! Love the lazy witch picture - too funny!

So, Er and I went today and our experience was NOTHING like yours. We and the kids had a great time! No wierdos, few teenagers, and lots of fun. But the witch was still there! Too funny! Come with us on a weekday next year!

I was totally going to say the same thing as Jess! It was way fun today - we virtually had the whole place to ourselves! I agree about the pits o' germs, but the kids had a blast! Funny picture of the witch - especially since I've seen her in person ;o)
