Have you been to see the Wizard?

We have. We hopped right into the story and went to see Wizard of Oz. It was complete with a spinning tornado, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Toto. Even the talking trees were there.

Last weekend, we went to Beech Mountain for the Autumn in Oz festival. The girls dressed up as Dorothy and Mick was the scarecrow. Then we rode a hayride right into the land of Oz. It is a yearly festival and lots of fun. This little land of Oz was created in the 1970's and a few parts definitely had quite the "trippy" feel - but that even added to the novelty of the day. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect.

We also enjoyed hanging out with Mimi and Poppa. Since they missed Mick's birthday we made sure to celebrate again - complete with cake and ice cream.

With another fun trip in the memory book, 2010 is definitely our Fall of Fun.

That is life in the stroller lane.
