Autumnal Celebration, Part 1

One of the things that we have done the past 3 or 4 years is that we go to a BUNCH of autumn festivals. It is something that the children have really started to look forward to. We actually usually start our Autumn Festivities with a trip to an apple orchard, and we did that this year too, but since we generally do it as part of a field trip for the homeschoolers/preschoolers, I put those pictures over at Montgomery Academy.

So the first Autumnal Celebration we attended this year was at the University's Horticultural Center. The weather was cool for so early in Autumn. Of course, it was a cooler summer here than we had had in years too. And it was misting/raining, and so it was wet and muddy too. I debated about going, but when I asked the children, they still really wanted to go. So off we went.

Jelly Bean slipped in the mud just before this shot was taken. You can't see the mud in this picture.

But you can in this one!
