Morganfield Corn Festival

We spent September 17 & 18 in Marc's hometown of Morganfield, KY for their biggest event of the year known as Corn Festival! We used to love going to this every single year while we were dating and first married, but ever since having Mason we haven't been able to go once just cuz life has gotten so hectic with Marc's residency and transitioning to his new job. In fact, the last time we went was September 2007 when we actually told Marc's family we were pregnant while sharing a Bloomin' Onion in the middle of the festival! We were sooo excited to be able to go this year and take Mason for his very first Corn Festival experience... outside of Mommy's tummy! We stayed with our good friends, John & Jamie Burgess, and their 2 sweet little girls, Audrey & Natalie. Jonathan & Molly (Marc's bro & his girlfriend) also came and stayed the weekend. We had the most fun hanging out with all of them! But why in the world did it have to be about 90 degrees???!?!?! Marc said that it was the hottest weekend for Corn Festival to-date during his lifetime. It was so hot that we almost couldn't enjoy it, but we did try to make the best of it!

Hangin' out at the Burgess' before heading to the festival... Mason was as happy as could be after discovering the tractor!

Fun with daddies on the carousel

Loved this!!! Mason wanted to ride these little cars, and he had to share one with this little boy. They were so confused at first and checked each other big time...
But, they were fast friends!

When we got home from the festival, we stripped the babies down to diapers cuz they were so stinkin' hot! Audrey loves her baby sister, Natalie!

Reading time

Nothin' like coolin' down with some fresh fruit!
Oh my, look at these good little sharers!!

Present time! Mason gave Audrey her birthday gift since we missed her party this year... some super cute Carter p.j.'s and a "Big Sis" shirt!
