This past weekend we attended the Fall Festival held on the square here in Magnolia. There was live music, sidewalk sales, a cake walk, a bouncy house for the kids, and lots of other fun activities. We enjoyed walking around and enjoying the cooler fall temperatures. Pink and Blue Avenue held a costume contest on the courthouse lawn for the kiddos. Owen would not take a morning nap on Sat. so he was very cranky while we waited for the contest to begin. As soon as it was his turn and he got on stage in front of the crowd that had gathered, he turned his showman skills on and did a great job! We already knew that Owen loves to be the center of attention (insert obvious joke about where he gets that from here) but he cracked us up with how well he behaved on stage. He stood so still and let the judges look at his costume.
this first picture is me dragging him off the stage when it was time for the next contestant....don't you think Batman with a pacifier is fierce!
Owen is obsessed with balloons and threw a massive hissy fit when he saw another kid with a balloon at the contest. Nonnie sprung into action and ran across the street to Brittney's flower shop and scored Owen this halloween balloon
Owen was so exhausted by the time the contest was over. Chris took him home for a nap while I stayed and shopped awhile.
Unfortunately, a very cute little boy in a Nemo costume who shook his booty when he got on stage beat out sweet Owen in the contest. We all had a great time and look forward to Halloween when Owen can ride in his souped up batmobile that Chris is fashioning for him this weekend. More pictures of that later!
