Far From Fall

Today was the Field Home Fall Festival. A cute little fair in town. We go every year. There's pumpkins, live music, games, a petting zoo and other kid-friendly events. The only thing wrong with this year is that it felt about mid-August rather than Autumn. It was in the high 80s, hot and humid. But we persevered!

We started out with a little lunch. Ish really enjoyed his hot dog and cookie.
Then we chilled out in the shade for a while and listened to the band.
There was a bouncy house with balloons - Ish threw a fit when we told him he had to get out.
So we distracted him from a full meltdown by playing the "pick a duck" game. Ish won a little plastic dinosaur.
There was a Kids Zone that included pumpkin painting and balloon animals. Ish asked for a puppy.
Then it was time to head home. It was just to hot to do any more.
Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 66 degrees. We can't wait!

We went apple picking and it was so hot - definitely still feels more like summer than fall... That fair looks like fin, though - and I'm a Met fan, too!

I know what the big hit with Ish was - that Bouncy House with balloons no less. I can see he was in his element. Here comes all the Falls festivals, fairs and great fun - and I can't get enough to be honest. Great pictures too! Yeeeaaah, it's going to be cooler and dryer here in New York.

I love fall festivals! But here in Central Florida it is always hot and never feels much like fall. He looked like he was really enjoying the bounce house, and I'm glad the ducks got his attention. :-)

I tagged you on my blog today. I hope you'll play along!
