Balloons, Kites, Manure and Apples

It has been a busy month between September and October. the family enjoyed an evening spent at the Adirondack Hot Air balloon Festival. Unfortunately, it was too stormy for any balloons to take off, but Jim, Kaela, Victoria and Lauren enjoyed flying Victoria's Pocket kite.

Kaela enjoyed cuddling with baby Sophia...

They did provide a demonstration of how they inflate and launch the balloons, nut this is as close as we came to seeing one. Better luck next year! On Victoria's first school field trip, they visited a farm. There were cows, cats, and a donkey. Look how pretty Victoria is in pink. She liked learning about the animals and how they are cared for.

This farm doesn't deal too much with animals any more, their focus now is compost and soil. The favorite adventure for the kids was climbing the compost pile (now actually top soil, so not really manure, but we all know where it came from!).
Actually, they liked sliding down. So much for Pretty in Pink!

This made for an interesting Apple Picking adventure to follow. But a few wet wipes, and dirty car seats, and the kids had a blast picking, and eating apples, and tasting hot cider and cider doughnuts.

Mom and Dad had a good time too.

Is it good Mom?

    Well? Was it good? How can you not answer a face like that?

    Willow -
    Please ask Victoria to show me the compost pile when I am big enough to slide down.
