Fall is here. The air is crisp, the leaves are beginning to change colors, and our family is gearing up for a busy season of spending time with family, enjoying the outdoors, and you guessed it…..SOCCER. As usual, we have so much on the agenda. I want to share with you our fall line up in hopes that you might be able to join us in some of these fantastic events that have become part of our family’s fall traditions!
Fall wouldn’t be fall without our yearly trip to the Titanic Museum Attraction parking lot for the Annual Chainsaw Woodcarving event. This year, on October 7, 8, and 9 will be the 4th annual and I can’t wait to see these skilled artists perform. Be sure to be there at 2pm on each of these days. Why? Because this is when the artists auction off their sculptures to the crowd. You can get some incredible deals!
The following weekend, on October 15 is my tasty charity favorite. It is Titanic’s 2nd Annual Firehouse Chili Cookoff. Last year, I learned some really interesting secrets about great chili. I will let you learn for yourself. Who knew that all of our local firefighters were such great cooks??? This year, we have a special Guest Judge from Harrison, Ar. His name is Michael Ardolino and he will donate $100 to St. Judes. The winners of the contest will also donate money to their favorite charity of choice. It is a delicious time for our family with lots of kid friendly activites!
If you are a pet lover, you have surely heard of TAME magazine! They have their annual Pets and Pumpkins event on Oct 22 this year in Springfield, Mo. Pets from across the Ozarks will compete for best dressed in this Costume Party event. Not to mention, last year there were bouncy slides, krispy creme doughnuts, marshmallow roasting, video gaming, arcade like games, and tons of other stuff for kids. Titanic’s 1st Class Maid Jaynee will attend with a special guest of the four-legged kind. My kids always have a great time at this event! Here are a few pictures from last year:
And of coarse, Fall wouldn’t be Fall without Soccer. My husband is coaching both teams this year, U6 and U10. He is so great with the kids, very competitive, but the kids love it and are learning! I am so thankful to the Titanic Museum Attraction for all that they do to support our community. I will leave you with a few soccer pictures….Happy Fall!! See YOU in OCTOBER!
