|Booth set up for the market|
I try to bring the boys to the Fall Harvest Fair at a local nut farm/heritage site every year. This year was a bit rainy and a bit cooler but no less fun!
I met Genevieve (she has done a few reviews right here) and her boys there and we visited all the booths, played on the playground, threw rocks into the lake and ate lunch. We were just finishing lunch, which consisted of more bargaining and threatening the boys than actual eating, when Correne arrived. She has lived through life in the trenches and survived. She has three grown, amazing children. She is a beacon of calm and sanity. Literally, when she arrived the only sunbeam of the day shone down on us, like she was our saviour. She was so helpful and although I know we could have done it I know Genevieve and I would have been much worse for wear.
Here a few pictures of our day
|The historic nut farm is gorgeous. We come here spring-fall to run and explore.|
|We were first to arrive and it waiting is hard to do.|
|Watch apples being pressed, the boys loved watching and sampling. Spice apple cider was just one of the many things that we came home with!|
|Smashie was a big helper, he carried the bucket and was able to find quite a few nuts all on his own.|
|Miss Correne had all the boys eating (literally) out of her hand. They just adore her!|
I can’t thank Correne enough, she herded and chased after boys, rolled and cracked open nuts, and she explained there are indeed rules to dog piling. She made my job easier, especially in the rows of trees where it is easy to ‘misplace’ a kid or two! So a big thanks! Hope you had fun!
