Fall Festival Fun
Yesterday we drove out to Graves Mountain (yes, my dear Idaho and Utah friends, that is a Virginia mountain -- you don't need to laugh quite that hard!) for their fall apple harvest festival. It was a little bit of a drive but Belvedere Plantation was like $15 per person and this one was free! And it was a lot of fun. Megan really enjoyed the pumpkin patch and seeing all the dogs (I was surprised at how many people brought their dogs -- especially in purses, clothes, and strollers!). We picked apples (ok from a barrel but they were very fresh from the tree), had cider and saw farm animals. We actually had a really good time and I LOVED the fact that we only wore jackets! No snow! Short sleeves underneath! I love Virginia! I think Megan's favorite thing was the rocks -- of course. And she walked a lot and slept hard last night. That's always a good thing.
Ok the haybale man was kind've creepy -- Megan's not looking at the camera because she's busy examining and as soon as the picture was taken she wanted away from that thing -- but it was picture worthy!
