Aldie Day

We spent yesterday morning at a local harvest festival. We ate kettle corn, fed woolly alpacas, walked through antique shops, jumped in a moon bounce, chatted with some fire fighters, watched a black smith demonstration, and toured the historic Aldie Mill. After the festival, we headed off for a beautiful fall drive through the Virginia countryside to a farm for pumpkin picking. Here are some pictures from Aldie Day.

Tay's first moon bounce experience. . .
after Carter climbed in she understood what it was all about.

Here is our wild boy coming down the moon bounce slide.

Historic Aldie Mill. The tour was very cool.

I think Carter liked the black smith demo a lot. Why do boys like fire so much?


Carter was feeling a little shy. . .

so we all had our picture taken!

Love the hair Tay! Or should I say Pebbles? I love pumpkin-patching, we got to do that last week, but we aren't as good about taking the camera everywhere!

I've just spent the last 20 minutes reading your blog and feeling like I were part of your memories. I love the way your family spends their time--fireman trucks, pumpkin patches, preschool, painting fingernails, assisting a birth, passing the bar, and getting a Mac (my mom is wondering why she listened to me when she got hers--I'll trade her in a second), etc. Thanks for the glimpse into a happy family.

I've been trying to find your blog, I figured it had to be from Kristie's website. I couldn't remember your married name so it took me a while. Your kids are so cute. It's great to catch up on what you have been up to. You're beautiful!
