This past weekend we were invited back to the Dorman Family farm by Lauren and Luke. Pat was off of school (WOO HOO) and the weather was going to be perfect. Pat had never been able to go to the farm before because of school. The girls were over the moon about going. They love spending time at the farm, especially The Bear. She's a country girl at heart. We picked Pat up from work on Friday afternoon and drove out to Hamilton, GA.
Friday evening was a lot of fun. Luke's cousin, Mallory, is in the Auburn University Singers. Have a look at them here http://youtu.be/c4xMuJ-H4cc. They were having their Halloween social that night. It was a scavenger hunt with the farm being the final destination. Mallory and the rest of the social committee arrived to set up the decor and food. Then groups of costumed show choir kids showed up. Each car load of people that arrived had themed costumes. There was a Jersey Shore crew, Smurfs, Little Bo Peep and her lost sheep, gangsters, Power Rangers, and a few more that I cannot remember. They ate, danced, and had a great time. We felt like chaperons. Luke told them that all they had to do for using the barn for their social was to perform one song for us. They totally did. I felt like I was in a real life episode of Glee. It was so fun; however, they were there very late. Which meant we all went to bed very late (except for the girls who went to bed at a decent hour and slept through all the noise in the barn).
Saturday was a bit windy and cold, but nothing that jackets, hats and gloves can't solve. We 4-wheeled, fished, and roasted hot dogs and smores over a fire. The Bear loves 4-wheeling more than anything. She will do anything for anybody as long as they promise to take her out on the 4-wheeler. Both girls were excited to go fishing. We even bought a little cheap Barbie fishing pole for them to share. Unfortunately the fish weren't biting when we went out on the pond. So we just enjoyed the beautiful day and all the fall foliage around. Pat enjoyed himself as well. Being in the great outdoors beats a stuffy classroom any day.

Curly likes 4-wheeling too. She doesn't like to go quite as fast as The Bear though.

It was sad to leave the farm on Sunday. Thankfully that evening we were invited to Jenna and Prem's for a cookout with cousin Sarah. She drove in from Oklahoma for the Georgia Tech vs Clemson game. It's always fun to see sweet Sarah. Lauren drove up from the farm for dinner too. Since this was the night before Halloween, Curly and The Bear received music lessons from their Aunt Lauren and Aunt Jenna to help them with the characters they were going to be the next day. Curly was going as Pocahontas for Halloween and The Bear as Ariel.
