A Bit of Fun
A few hours outing to a "Farm Days" event was fun for all of us. Katya wasn't too sure about the idea of riding in the horse drawn wagon at first, but she calmed down once she realized her big, strong Daddy was going to carry her up the steps and hold her. She always does think he's a little more of a protector than Mommy is--his is the head she tries to climb if something suddenly scares her and he's any where around! Otherwise, Mom will do, but Dad is definitely her preferred protector. She ended up enjoying the ride, as I we thought she would.
We were only there about two hours, and then went for fruit at an orchard. We came home loaded with pears, peaches, plums and apples. We won't be canning anything but the pears (hopefully on Monday--two pecks worth. Our jars are about gone, and our shelf space is about used up too! Thus that is all that came home for canning. I would still like to squeeze in some applesauce later in the year, but we'll see if that happens or not.
It was a fun outing. Glad it worked out that we could go this year.
