Now, about the weekend fun--since I'm sure you're wondering what open windows and puffy eyes have to do with that. Nothing really.
After the carnival, we took them to an apple festival. Every year since we moved here we've gone to an apple festival that's held each fall in a little town about an hour away and this was the weekend. They have arts, crafts, food (think: funnel cake!), antiques, and, of course, apples and cider. Yum!! We mostly just go to buy some cider, sample a million varieties of apples, and eat some fair food. The booths are all set up in a beautiful pine grove and the kiddos always love exploring there. Here are some snapshots of the afternoon there:
and more apples!
sampling all of the different varieties--very fun!
taking a ride on the apple express, whoo whoo!!
keeping busy little hands out of the vendors' booths!

I know this has been a long post, but, hey, it was a long day! But a very fun one, the kind that gives you that good sort of tired feeling.
