Harvest Festival

After visiting the Headwaters Arts Festival in the morning, we headed over to a wonderful harvest festival at a local museum. This is a yearly event that we make sure to mark on the calendar...pony rides, threshing demonstrations, rope-making, a corn maze, sausage-making and a cider press, and corn husk dolls. I am told that the beef stew and apple pies cooking inside smelled heavenly, but we ran out of time before we made it to that part of the exhibit.

The rope making was definitely a favourite. William and Charlie came home and played with their 6 foot pieces of rope for the better part of an hour and a half - as a harness to climb the tree in the front yard, lassoing each other and the dog, tying them to anything that they could find, and playing toss and catch with the knotted ropes. We had a brief moment of panic when Williams high throw landed his rope securely about 15 feet up in our neighbours tree, but Daddy quickly came to the rescue.

Hope that everyone had as good a weekend as we did!
