These past few weeks, we have been soaking up all the fun that only summer can bring here in the mountains. We have enjoyed the Apple Festival, the Mountain State Fair, and trying out the local vineyards. The evenings are starting to cool down and it is glorious! Our favorite thing to do every night is to take an evening stroll around the apple orchards with Ada or to sit out on our back porch with a glass a wine while Ada plays. Days like these, makes me wish for time to stop so I can enjoy these little moments with my family just a little bit longer. But alas, the only way to make time to last a little longer is to take lots of pictures! 😉
I was so excited for the Mountain State Fair to get here because of all the farm animals they have. Ada loves all her toys and books about farm animals. Instead of calling them by name, she refers to the animals by what sound they make. She doesn’t call a cow, cow – she calls it moo. It so cute! She loved seeing all the animals and would make the sound of each one as we walked by.
She had a blast on this stuffed horse! She didn’t want to leave it! I guess I’ll have to get her a rocking horse now. 😉
And we all enjoyed the fair food!
It was so much fun taking Ada to the fair. Next year, she just might be big enough for some of the rides!
The hiking back pack for Ada has been great for all these festivals and fairs. But we are looking forward to when she can walk on her own. Hopefully, soon!
The pack is perfect for our evening strolls through the orchards, of course. She loves riding in it. She gets a great view where ever we go.
I hope you are enjoying these last few days of summer. But I am glad to see fall coming! I am ready for the crisp, cool air; the beautiful colors; sweatshirts; and nights by the fire! Happy Hump Day ya’ll!
