Fall Fest (LOTS of pictures!)

Our friend's Travis and Renee had a Fall Fest out in Floyd county yesterday. We had such a fun time! It was a bit of a drive to get there (about an hour), but this is a lovely time of year to be driving up in the mountains. We do live in a very pretty part of the world, and it's nice to get out and appreciate it sometimes :)

Avery with her sunglasses and blanket and book, all ready for the drive.

I didn't think about the fact that it would be colder at the higher elevation, so didn't go back into the house to get a coat even though Gabe suggested it...but luckily somebody had a spare fleece and let me borrow it!

This was Avery's favourite thing - the swing hanging from the tree!


She love being able to swing so much higher than normal swings! And spinning around, or going in circles was also fun. Gabe's thinking about whether we could hang a swing like it from the tree behind the house...

I fed Brogan shortly after we arrived, and then he quite happily settled down in his car seat with about a billion blankets and went to sleep.
After almost everyone else went off on a hayride to pick apples for the cider, Avery still stuck to the swing. Not even a chance to ride behind the tractor was enough to tempt her!
I like this picture...even the the faceless hooded Gabe sort of looks like the grim reaper.....

And Brogan slept on....

Gabe and Avery frollicking up on the hill :D

"Look at the clouds Mummy!!"

"Look at the flowers Mummy!!!"

A flower!!

And still he slept....

Avery showing off her flower.

Yep, it was quite the flower....

Avery "cooking" her flower, just like the hotdogs and marshmallows from earlier :)
Smelling the flower!

And here are some pictures which Victoria emailed me from her camera...

The cider press.
