I attended the local Christmas parade.
Every American parade begins with the color guard.
The Grinch showed up
And a pony club
The local karate kids were there with their mascot
And the girl scouts had a float
Mrs. Claus was there to assure Santa was dressed properly
The festive spirit was everywhere
All because this guy was coming to town!

The grandkids are on Fall break, so we did a little day trip exploring the Garfield trail.
Garfield's cartoonist creator is Jim Davis,
a native Hoosier from Fairmount, Indiana.
Scattered all over Grant county are eleven life-size Garfields.
The kids enjoyed finding Garfield, on a train...
At a hospital, posing as Dr. Garfield...
Dressed as a firefighter...
And as a fisherman.
One of our favorites was outside a renowned ice cream shop, Ivanhoes,
where we stopped for lunch.
And we found one dressed as a cool cat in the hometown of James Dean.
We enjoyed being tourists in our own state!

Grandpa & I took the grandkids to a nearby apple orchard & pumpkin patch.
Of course, being in Indiana, there was a corn maze.
Using the tower in the center of the maze, we spotted the boys, Grandpa & Ryan.
They beat us out, by the way.
There was also a giant tube slide that resembled a caterpillar rising 25 feet in the air.
There were lots of fun activities with a hayride, pedal tractors & this barrel train.
Of course there were apples.
And fresh cider donuts!
And all kinds of pumpkins.
I love autumn in Indiana!
