edmond electric open house 2014

Edmond Electric has an open house each year, but this was our first time to attend. As soon as we got the flyer in the mail I knew Todd would love it, and that we had to go. I knew Elle would have fun too, but you could see it on Todd's face that he was so excited! He was running around and checking out all the trucks. He got to bowl with a backhoe, climb all over a fire truck, play with power lines (not connected of course), and see the bucket trucks. The kids were too little to go up this year. They had free hot dogs and hamburgers, face painting, and lots of other free goodies from the city. Elle did fall down at one point, but the EMT fixed her up (she chose to put the band-aid on her nose). Definitely going again next year!

the beginning of fall 2014

Elle requested going to the pumpkin patch, and it's hard to say no to her since she's at school now so much during the week. Going to WINGS was on our fall bucket list and I'd heard that they only run the hay ride and pumpkin train on the weekends so Saturday was a good day to go. Not too mention it was the first day that started out like a true fall day. It was beautiful, and a fun outing. WINGS supports a special needs community and the "patch" is located on Boulevard in Edmond near Memorial Rd.  Besides pumpkins, flowers, and hay for sale, and the hay ride and pumpkin train, they also have cute pumpkin cut outs for fun pictures, bunnies and chickens, "cow" milking, a hay slide, and bowling. Not a ton, but enough for little ones to do and you don't have to pay to play. Plus you don't have to drive a ways to get to it.
