Scarecrows in the Park

This morning we got up early and went over to Lake Jackson in Opp to see the "Scarecrows in the Park". I'm not sure who coordinated all of it, but it sure was cute. They have three different trails you can walk down and each trail has several scarecrows that people have made out of anything and everything. They are really neat. I took approximately 1000 pictures so I just made a slideshow. They didn't turn out so good because after we left I saw that I had my camera on the wrong setting! Anyway, the weather was pleasant and the woods are absolutely beautiful and we got out exercise in for the day! I think this runs through November, so if anyone is interested, I highly recommend it. Thanks Robin for the suggestion! Next on the list...painting our pumpkins!

I have never heard of the "Scarecrows in the Park". Jeremy and I will definitely have to the boys. What family fun!

I have a question. The Robin that you mentioned in your blog....is that Robin Bailey? If so, I took a photography class with her back in July. She is a sweet woman.

That is Robin Bailey. And YES, she is a precious person!

Thank you both for your kind words. Beth, did you see any traffic on the trail? Such great fun for us. I am glad you were able to get out and enjoy the creativity and the great outdoors.

I never know whether to answer questions on my blog or yours, so I am doing both. We used the apple barrel brand acryllic paint from Wal-mart.
The scare crows are neat, I wonder how long they will have them out? Maybe we can make it down in time to see them.

I talked to your mother earlier today and she told me to be sure to check out your blog. It looks really cute. We always loved Lake Jackson! The scarecrows were a really good idea. Wonder who came up with that? And yes, we do want to go, if we are still invited!

It looks like you guys had a great time together today. Enjoy your Saturdays together and be thankful for them. I will be so glad when Brian has Saturdays free to enjoy with the rest of the world. He misses out on everything. I laughed at the "Ricky" scarecrow! I like the "Model" at the end as well! Those were too cute! Take care!
Love,
Dawn

Also I meant to tell you that I am really enjoying blogging. My mom always said I should be a writer. She thinks that b/c she is my mom but I do enjoy it and I am enjoying my blog spot. Thanks for the recommendation. I've e-mailed and suggested it to a lot of people on my e-mail list!

What a cute idea! I've really tried recently to embrace all of the "community" type activities there are to do here in Knoxville. They are everywhere! You just have to look for them. What great family fun!
