Fall Festival

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...
Pure joy!

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?
Won't 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!

What a delightful tale, Sush! And what a gorgeous little bundle of love your precious Lily is! That picture of her on the pony, holding her Dad's hand while wearing her biggest happy smile, is priceless!

Shelly said...

Glorious, glorious! I love that you let us tag along with you. It was so much fun to see things through her eyes. Have a wonderful week, Sush!

Pony rides were my favourite thing as a child! Even now, I am jealous of the little ones that they get to go on the ponies... but with my long legs, my feet would touch the ground!

I love Lily! There's a TV show title for you! I'm glad she gave in to peer pressure and went through with the pony ride. That day Lily learned a lesson. With proper guidance and support you can take a calculated risk and achieve a positive outcome. You have a beautiful family, Sush. Thank you for sharing these pictures with us and happy Halloween!

Ponies rock. My daughter and I spent hours on horseback when she was growing up.

Belle said...

It's so much fun watching children do something new. She looks so happy up on that horse. I love fairs - lots of fun.

Crystal Pistol said...

Awww! little ones are so much fun! I'm happy she rode the pony. My little girls use to love ponies. Now their feet would drag on the ground if they tried to ride one. So sad how they grow in the blink of an eye. :)
