Friday evening we were excited to head to Mahone Bay and enjoy the Scarecrow Festival, an event we only missed once in the past 6 years. The residents of the charming town of Mahone Bay create various scarecrows posted throughout the town, with activities planned for the weekend. Our favorite part of the festival is always the Pumpkin Walk: As the sun sets, dozens (some years hundreds) of jack o lanterns light up a long lane, with musicians playing the fiddle, and hundreds of people walk along admiring the handiwork, warm drinks in hand.
|The Witches Coven - see bottom 3 witches - was our favorite display|
My camera does not take decent night time pictures, so I found this one of the pumpkin walk in 2009:

Saturday, we headed to New Brunswick to my in laws for a staff party at my father in law's home - Hubby and I both work for the family business, as does Hubby's brother, so it was a small gathering of family and co-workers, with bonfire and feasting! Hubby was in charge of the fire, and took his job very seriously :)
Heading back home the next day, we made it to Elle's school fall fair. She enjoyed their haunted house, face painting and photo booth. I convinced Hubby we should enjoy the photo booth too :)
Hubby and Elle look more and more alike!
