I love weekends when we have plenty to do but also enough time to wind down before we head off to the next adventure. This weekend was just one of those weekends. Friday night we headed out to Target but we stopped at McDonalds for some ice cream first because why not, right?
Saturday we headed downtown to check out the farmer’s market and there was also an Agricultural Festival downtown. Sydney is OBSESSED with Old McDonald Had A Farm and every.single.morning she wants me to sing it on the way to school AND we pass cows and horses that makes her morning (and afternoon). She was SO EXCITED to see all these farm animals set up at the mall downtown. We go down there pretty often so for her to see these guys down there her day was made.
One of the table gave her this cow face. She loves it. She spent quite a bit of time this weekend holding it up to her face going “moo” in the cutest, cutest voice possible. It is the best. She has such an awesome personality that I can’t get enough of her.
Sunday we headed over to the fair grounds for the Apple Harvest Festival. We live in apple country so there are a lot of apple related festivals around these parts (hello, Appleblossom.) This is a cute little craft festival with a children’s zone and an apple booth that shows all the different types of apples that can be grown (plus they give away a free bottle of juice and an apple – which was speaking Sydney’s language so we definitely go in there). The craft vendors are nice, but we didn’t buy much other than food (apple butter = yum!).
Sydney spent quite a bit of time in the kids zone jumping around on the blow up things. She loved this slide… until she got up there one time and did not want to come down it at all. So that was when we decided to find something else to do. She really did enjoy herself and it is so crazy to me that she is this little big kid. Where did my baby go? Before we headed out we got our face painted… even me. Because when your daughter says “you too mommy” you say yes and you get a pink heart on your cheek to match.
She is my favorite person in the whole world and I love spending time with her. She makes my weekends full of fun but we still make time for naps and relaxing which is how we rounded out our Sunday evening. And there you have it, another awesome weekend in the books.
