Pumpkin Parade

On Saturday, we went to the Morton Pumpkin Festival.  Apparently, this is a MUCH BIGGER DEAL than I would have anticipated, because the town was packed.  I'm talking Disney World-type crowds.  I've never seen anything like it. 

The highlight of the festival for us was watching the parade.  For 45 minutes, Jacob was mesmerized.  Frank and I took turns holding him so he could see.

The fire engines and police cars were big hits, and since Saturday he's been making a 'siren' sound.  (Picture him screaming in a shrill little voice, "Eeeeeee!")

Even though it was too crowded to spend much time there, it was worth the drive if only for the parade.
