Everyone settle in.
Grab a beer, maybe some schnitzel and get ready because today’s post has approximately 4 million Oktoberfest pics. #apologiesinadvance
Here’s the deal, I love me a festival. Give me any town in any city and turn it into a festival of some sort, and I want to be there. Right smack dab in the middle of it. Every year, our town hosts an Oktoberfest weekend and then my parents’ town does the very next weekend, so we always make it a priority to do it twice! This year, we even hit up our town’s Oktoberfest two nights in a row…because we clearly have issues 😉 . Here are the pictures to prove it…
Greetings from McKinney, TX!
I love my town. I love it so darn much, but I absolutely am OBSESSED with it during Oktoberfest!
The four Shull kids look forward to it all year long too! We always try and go late afternoon/evening, so we were pumped on Saturday when it was finally time to show up.
This year, we let Kensington bring Frenchie along too 🙂 . Poppy was thrilled to stay at home and enjoy the peace and quiet 😉 .
Guys, I am a lot to handle sometimes. My bubbly/obnoxiously cheerful personality around the fall/holiday season is probably a lot to live with. It’s a good thing the Lord had Andrew in mind for my hubby because he’s as giddy about this stuff as I am!
Let’s do this, Oktoberfest!
My big kids climbed way up high on the rock wall!
We ran into the Slaughter crew and all four big kids decided to spin like crazy on this ride. It made me nauseous just watching it go around!!
Living our best life 😉 .
It’s always so much fun when we can find a ride that all four kids can enjoy together!
It always makes me smile to see how they pair up each time. It’s always a little different.
Around they went!
When you’re too cool for school…
…when you’re just filled with JOY!
Meanwhile, Samuel and Frenchie waited patiently for them to get off. Hahaha! Isn’t this the cutest?! Samuel didn’t want to ride, but he wanted to watch…with Frenchie. (By the way, Madeley ONLY calls that dog French Fry. Ha!)
When you’re like “What the heck is wrong with this weather?! Record breaking temps?! Warmest September in 100 years! What is going on?!”.
Pony time for Samuel and Madeley!
Just a girl and her horse 🙂 .
It wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without root beer!
It’s been a rocky fall for this one, but she has really kept the most positive attitude. I am so proud of her!
Oh hey there, Auntie Catherine! So, what do we think? Is this new baby a boy or a girl? I’ve already guessed what I think his name will be if he’s a boy (I haven’t finalized my answer if it’s a girl yet).
So many people, so festive, so happy…we love you, McKinney!
Smith and Isaiah were having a very serious conversation.
We played so many games and rode so many rides all day/night long! I just love the community feel about it!
They all had so much fun!
So, that was our first Oktoberfest! Last Friday after school, we drove to Southlake (my fam was all out of town, so we didn’t meet them there) and enjoyed their Oktoberfest too…
Round two, let’s do this!
This boy has his mama’s heart!
More root beer? Of course!
Gang’s all here!
We always have to stop and get body art!
She was two days post-op and DOING FANTASTIC! Praise Jesus!!
All the pretty art 🙂 .
We drank root beer, got our body art, played games and rode rides!
It was so much fun!
Until next year, Oktobefests. We always enjoy you so much!! xo
