The way I see it, there is no better way to spend a crisp autumn afternoon than with friends, family, live folk music, beer and brats, carnival games, a live auction, and people dressed in lederhosen! Lucky for me, St. Francis Montessori was hosting their annual Oktoberfest this weekend! My family and I spent the late afternoon and early evening enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of this festive event. In painted faces, children bustled from game to game, and cut loose in the bouncy house, while the adults enjoyed beer, folk music, and German dancing, and snagged some inestimable goods during the live auction (whoever got the brunch at the Four Seasons, let me know if you need another member for your party!). Needless to say, a good time was had by all!
