October may be my favorite month in Manhattan. Not only is the weather perfect, the leaves are changing colors (but haven’t fallen enough for us to be feeling bad about having not raked and bagged them yet) and there’s just so many fun things to do!!
This year Beckham is dressing as Cole Witt, a NASCAR driver. He likes him cause he’s an underdog.
Sadie Piper is Danica Patrick. She likes her cause she’s a girl. And she’s pretty.
KSU Greeks put on a Kids Carnival annually, it’s a lot of fun!!
Just in case you have an irrational fear of mascots, let this fuel your fire: all I asked to do was take a picture with him. Then there was this:
Kidding Willie, we love you!
There’s no shortage of pumpkin patches around here! Or corn to roll around in. This is Kansas…
We told them all to look straight ahead and not smile. When they asked why, instead of explaining Children of the Corn to them, we just said, “cause it’s funny for the adults.”
She’s serious about her corn mazing…
We are not…
What’s a pumpkin patch without a huge slide?
We spent a while trying to recreate this epic picture:
Our attempts were valiant, but sub par at best!
I love this picture!
Potato cannon. Brian makes fun of me cause when I concentrate hard I stick my tongue out a little. Who’s laughing now!?
Also, somehow there’s always birds that are caught
Then there’s the Homecoming parade. Manhattan has a parade for most everything (and we will go to them!), but this one is our fav! It feels so small town!
Painted hay bales are one of our favorite things!
