Happy Fall Ya’ll!

I haven’t been blogging lately, in fact, it’s been over three weeks.  I’ve been debating about whether to stop entirely as it’s been difficult to find the time to blog.  I usually blog in the late evening and I’ve found it hard to make the time to sit down and do it.  I’ve had other things I needed or wanted to get done, so blogging has taken a back seat to those things, but I decided to give it another shot. 

The weather has been so beautiful here lately, a little cooler than usual for this time of year, but I love it!   Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons,  so I’m sharing this beautiful graphic from Pat’s Web Graphics.  It’s a great site for really beautiful graphics for your blog.

Well, I’m off to bed, I hope you have a great Thursday!

Love, Velvia

 It’s time to play catch up with my blogging, I’m posting about an event from last Saturday, but we had so much fun and I got some great pictures so I decided to post about it even though it’s a week late. 

 Drama Queen and I met Phillip, Beth, Spiderman, and Ladybug at a fall festival in a nearby town.   One of my favorite things about Fall is attending the different festivals in our area.  This was our first year to attend this particular one and it didn’t disappoint us, we had a great time!  

We watched the parade first, there were antique and vintage cars, vintage tractors, local boy scout troops, a local dance studio’s students performing, floats from local churches, horses pulling buggies, and of course, a fire truck!  I didn’t take many pictures of the parade, I guess because I was too busy enjoying myself I forgot to.    Here are some pictures of us waiting on the parade to start.  

Beth with Ladybug who’s in deep thought

Spiderman had the best view of all – Daddy’s shoulders

               I love a parade!

     I’m ready for Mardi Gras!

One of the floats was throwing Mardi Gras type beads to the crowd, we caught several strands and these huge pink ones are the ones Spiderman wanted to wear.  This particular strand of beads was heavy, I’m surprised he wore them as long as he did.

                Watch me slide!

After the parade we had lunch and then walked around to some of the craft booths, then we took the little guys over to the playground where they had a great time.  Here Ladybug is getting ready to slide after having climbed up the ladder at least four feet by herself.  She would not let Phillip give her a hand up, she wanted to do it all by herself.

          Finally, lunch time!

Here’s Drama Queen enjoying her lunch of Polish sausage, I caught her mid-chew.   She enjoyed herself, but she was looking forward to leaving the festival to go look at puppies.   This was the same day we got our new puppy, Oreo. 

I’m looking forward to the next festival and of course to our annual trip to the Pumpkin Farm.  Fall is such an awesome time of year, there are so many fun activities to participate in and of course the beautiful weather makes them even more enjoyable.

Well, I’m off to bed, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Love, Velvia
