Weekend Wrap Up

We didn't have any big plans this weekend, so when a neighbor mentioned that a nearby town was hosting a Harvest Festival at the reservation, we figured we should check it out.
There were vendors selling all sorts of crafts, but our favorite was the marionette puppets.
A classic Pinocchio was one of Pi's favorites.
There were people dressed in colonial clothing that were walking around and talking to the crowd. It was neat to see all the different characters. This particular guy seemed to show up wherever we went. Colonial stalker!

Piper + saw = heart palpitations! She did great, though, so my worrying was for nothing. (p.s. - see the colonial stalker in the background?)

Roasted duck (I think) anyone?

A man teaching about Native Americans had these animal skins on display.
Pi is never too old to pose for a cheesy picture with me.
These boys scouts were making fresh squeezed apple juice. It was delicious!

There was a make your own scarecrow section. Unfortunately for us, we got there just as they ran out of scarecrow parts. Oh well, maybe next year. The scarecrows on display were awesome!
We headed over to the petting zoo, where we found this cow wrestling with a metal chair. He was literally fighting to hold onto it!

Once it was taken away, he was happy to get a rub.

Baby chickens... So stinkin cute!
Baby ducks.... even cuter!
Pi was enamored with this sheep.
Until they got into a tug-of-war over her jacket!

Annnnd, the very best way to end the day was by eating a ridiculously large funnel cake!

Fall is seriously the best season. I love activities like this and being able to enjoy them in cool weather.
What did you do this weekend?

What an awesome weekend. I love the sheep pulling on her jacket.

Laura said...

Looks like fun! You and Pi take such cute mother/daughter pictures! My daughter and I both hate taking pictures - we both feel self concious around the camer.
