This past weekend was one that I look forward to annually and have ever since I was a kid. Growing up and going to school in the small Des Moines neighborhood called Beaverdale, you counted down the days until the Beaverdale Fall Festival. A huge parade (that I was usually in) on Saturday morning followed by carnival rides and bingo in the gymnasium during the rest of the day.
I love being able to share this tradition with my boys as they get older. This year did not disappoint!
