While the girls are sleeping (oh sweet bedtime)…
Mommy’s taking a trip down memory lane… Care to go with me… ?!
Fall in Viginia is really something pretty amazing. I’m happy to have grown up in Florida, but seeing the seasons change – well, it’s such a fun thing. Just when you’re tired of the cold…along comes the spring.. and when your’e tired of the summer, in comes the cooler fall. And with fall, comes fall festivals. And even more.. fall CRAFT festivals. Have I mentioned that I have the most patient husband in the world. Ha. He’ll tell you he goes “for me” – but i’m pretty sure he finds them pretty interesting (or maybe just the people) – pretty interesting to watch. Anyway, there were a few back to back, and well, we’re making it a tradition. A family tradition.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane..
The 2012 Blumont Craft festival..
(already giving us orders)..
And this year…this was Taylor’s FIRST year, and the second time for Avery. We went again with our friends the Taylor’s … they’re one of those fun couples that’s crazy (like us) and don’t mind a full day with our two little nutty girls. Craft festivals with little girls is, after all, EXTRA special.
Mrs. Mary showing Taylor the (alpaca?!)… (Mommy needs to study her farm animals more. Yak)
Not that it matters. Kids love animals of ANY kind. Look at these faces..
And my friend Al… making an Alpaca face..
And now Mary tries it..
Clearly, Al spoke their language..
Avery loved feeling the sheep (thank God for antibacterial hand sanitizer… ha)
But look at how she has grown… from last year, to this year…. Oh sappy momma heart. You are a mush.
The 2012 Heritage craft festival…
And then this year (2013)… With my mom happily watching Taylor for the day, we thought we’d make the day extra special for her and just take Avery. She had SUCH a blast. Her special day with mom and day (and Mary and Al). We had a blast…. and wore her RIGHT out. Sweet daddy snuggles.
Sweet memories together. And sweet photos to help us capture it all. God is so good. Counting our blessings and giving thanks extra early.
