I love me a good fall festival. The food, the craft booths, the food. I just get sucked in every single time. So on Saturday when Boo and I turned to trusty google to find something fun to do with the kids, we were immediately drawn to the idea of a local festival. Add in that it had a free petting zoo AND a Thomas train you could ride. WIN. WIN.
"Mama...Do you SEE that car? Put the camera down and move along."
Apparently Henry thinks it's funny that I had to drag the wagon up a hill to get to the festival. I did not think it was funny.
but totally worth it! I mean, who wouldn't be sucked in to the adorableness that is this town and their craft booths?
Turns out my mom and aunt thought this event was worth attending as well, since we ran into them there. Crazy small world.
This is what a Nanny looks like who runs into her grand babies when she least expects it.
Then we ALSO ran into Cici's other grandparents. Turns out EVERYONE loves fall festivals! (or at least everyone of the grandparent variety)
Trading babies. (yes my long sleeve shirt is now gone. And I managed to take it off in the middle of a crowded food booth. Amazing what you can pull off when you are burning alive. Mental note, September...still hot.)
Henry couldn't wait to see the real train engine! Right up until we got close to it. Then...terrified.
In his defence, that thing was H-U-G-E. Who knew? (train conductors. they totally knew)
Next we rode the Thomas train, which was much more reasonably sized.
Next we moved on to the petting zoo. "CHICKENS CICI!! CHICKENS!"
No fear of the wild beasts. (or tame farm animals. Whatever)
We finished the day off with ice cream. Because it just seemed right.
All in all, a perfect fall day.
