Fall Family Fun Day 2007!

Last Saturday was our long-awaited, most festive, Fall Family Fun Day! This has to be one of my favorite Bacak traditions. This was the fourth annual FFFD, and yes, it's known as FFFD!
We start with a trip to the pumpkin patch. There are no better pictures than pumpkin patch pics. The color + cute kids = precious.
Every Bacak child gets to pick their favorite pumpkin to take home.
They look at them, touch them, sit on them, talk to them...this is serious! You only get to pick one!
Then we take them home and we carve them. Yes, the kitchen is covered in pumpkin guts, and it's pretty gross, but the result is spectacular. Rusty is the designated super-carver, because he's gifted, and because it's against my religion to touch pumpkin innards.
Then...my favorite part...because it involves food...CARAMEL APPLES!!!
By the fourth year, we have just about perfected this. It's super yummy, but it's also glue-like. We brush the children's teeth three times that night. We budget more for dental bills each year because of this one day.
But it's so fun!
This year we even had a FFFD pumpkin parade, put on by Jax and Emma. They are too cute. We think every special day deserves a parade around here. They made banners, homemade instruments, and chanted F-F-F-D!
There were so many cute pictures I made my first slideshow. I feel almost as cool as Lynsey Kramer, who has super cool slideshows on her blog all the time.
I hope you enjoy it!
Long Live FFFD!!!!!
