Sleepy Hollow

This was the 2nd year we have gone up to Riley's Farm for their Halloween "Sleepy Hollow" show with my family for my dad's birthday. And it was just as much fun this time around. And we were able to bring Jovie this time, which was also fun experiencing it with her for the first time. And like Peyton last time, Jovie was the one who was freaked out by the 'haunted' hay ride, which wasn't scary btw. We all participated and had a good time. And if you know my family you know we take competition pretty seriously. The event includes dinner and games. And out of the 6 games they played the Todd's came out with 5 wins. We didn't win the pumpkin carving competition, but no one really took that one too seriously.

The night began with a hayride, dinner and live music.
 Oh and of course a little frog catching outside.

Then we moved onto the dancing and games.
The first competition was pumpkin speed spitting.
Kids competition won by miss Ella Mae.

 Jovie sure was cute competing. Peyton was off carving the pumpkin at this point.
Adult competition won by no other than my man, Weston B.
The next game was a modified bobbing for apple. It's an apple on a string and you have one person hold it up and two others have to eat as much of it as possible in the time allotted. 2 time champions: April and Hayley (aided by Adam).
Pie eating competition.
Winner of kids competition: Carter Todd
Winner of the adult group: Ryan Hamilton (he was given such a hard time competing against the kids, though he was legally within the age limits, he opted to compete against the adults. And he won!)

It was such a fun, fabulous night.
