Every year the local park (that is on old farm land but is now a county park) holds a fall festival. It’s about 3 miles from our house and I’ve always wanted to go but I’ve never gone because I didn’t want to be the awkward adult without a child. It’s mainly geared towards children so I would have stuck out like a sore thumb. Plus, I didn’t want to go alone. I wanted to go as a family.
This year my family and I went. It was a perfect fall day.
Ready to go for a walk to the park
I don’t think I have any recent pictures of her without her hand in her mouth. And that girl has jaws of steel! I let her chew on my finger every once in awhile and holy moly, I can’t believe I don’t have bruises.
My friend, Heather and her son met up with us. She hasn’t seen Scarlett since she was only a few weeks old.
We checked out some of the animals there.
Beaker and Penny had a hard time controlling their excitement around the animals.
All in all, an awesome day. I think we’ll have more fun next year when Scarlett can enjoy it more. She was pooped and took a much needed nap on the way home.
There is nothing better than a sleepy, snuggling baby on your chest. Nothing.
