Several weeks ago we had the pleasure of joining our son Tim and his wife Lisa and their daughter Lily for Lily's pre-school's Fall Festival. There were many little ones running around from tent to tent enjoying themselves immensely. No charge...only requirement was to enjoy. We were thrilled to pay up!
Lily had a plan...and she's off!
First up...the toddler jump house!
I think she got the idea right away...
Upon leaving the jump house decisions had to be made. Where do you want to go next Lily?
At first she was heading over to the dance contest...but then she spied what was going on behind her!
Pony Rides! Now Lily was sure she wanted to ride those ponies!
but when you're a wee not yet two year old, it takes some yes I do...No I don't...and she passed on the first go round
But when she was on the sidelines watching all the children ride the ponies she had passed up she had second thoughts and the pony ride owner was very patient while she worked up her courage! Will she?
Yes she will! With a firm grasp on Daddy's hand, a few trots around the circle she warmed up to it and was laughing with glee by the time she was finished!
Yee-Haw! Ride 'em cowgirl!
After Lily's success on the pony rides we were back wandering around the tents. Lily went to the tent where you put your hand in the pumpkin and guess what is inside. It took an explanation that she couldn't keep what was buried in the pumpkin. Once she learned she could pick a prize from a shiny black cauldron, she was satisfied and happy!
Sush and Pop headed towards home soon after this but we sure did have a wonderful fall morning with this lovely family. We love you Tim, Lisa and Lily!
Thanks for some lovely memories on a beautiful fall morning!
