Fall Festivites with Family
Last weekend my daughter from Florida and her sweet baby boy came for a long weekend visit that went by entirely too fast! I was looking forward to having them experience some brisk fall weather since it had still been so hot l in Florida. And brisk weather they got!
Saturday we went to Attala for their annual Heritage Day Festival. Last year they had free hay rides and train rides for the little kids, but not this year! Last year they had the most fun sounding Zydeco Band, not this year! Last year was cool and sunny, not this year! Cloudy, windy and soooo cold! You would think I had a lousy time, but I didn't! Watching my grandson Kavi have so much fun just walking around, squealing with delight at the window display of model cars, dancing to the live music, eating chocolate covered bananas and pretzels in the Wedding Chapel, and basically just walking around made for a fun filled day!
The next day we were hoping for even more fun as we were going to a Pumpkin Patch Farm about an hour away, with hay rides, live music, petting zoo and more. The weather was gorgeous that day, sunny and brisk and Kavi had even more fun that day! He just loves walking around! He is only 20 months old and his favorite things are cars (he's pretty much obsessed),dogs, birds, horses and walking around outside! He showed no fear at all at the petting zoo, willingly touching goats, pigs and wanting to touch the big turkeys. His energy never seemed to fail all day and his delight with simple things never failed that day either! If you live somewhere where they have some fun fall activities, go to them and if you have any little kids with you, the very best time will be had! Happy Fall!!!!
