back in time........

Last weekend we took a trip back in time at an old-timey park in our city. So fun! We've been reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books for a couple of months now and we're on The Long Winter, so stepping back in time was so real to us, we kept imagining what Laura and Mary would think of everything.
Freshly gathered eggs.....
Going to school with Laura and Mary.......
The woodworker's cottage was awesome, the kids did hammering and sanding and made a button toy.
She's not mad here, this is her old-fashioned "serious" look for a photo.....
The "not-so-serious" look........

Harvest!

I just have to share our first tomato with you! It was delicious......juicy, tart, sweet, acidic! Just perfect. Hopefully the rest of them will ripen before the cold sets in here, but seriously, it feels more like summer today, on the first of September, than it has all summer! It's nice and hot, perfect for ripening tomatoes! Pretty soon I'll share our apple harvest with you......I've been eating apple crisp almost every day for the past week. Happy Harvest season to you all!
