More Fall Fun

We hit up another fall festival this weekend. This one was at Adams Fair Fairacre Farms in Poughkeepsie. Grandma, Pop Pop and Maryann joined in on the fun.
Our first stop at the fair was the pony rides. Matthew LOVES pony rides.
As does his sidekick.
Noah is a tad bit too young yet for pony rides, but he was happy with the balloon he got while Matthew and Maryann rode.
After ponies, it was time to decorate pumpkin cookies.
Icing, sprinkles and candy corn - Matthew dreams about this stuff!
The highlight for young Matthew was the jumpy bounce houses they had set up.
He went on every one at least twice.
It was tough getting him to walk away from all this fun.
Again, Noah was a little too little to participate in the bouncy fun, but he didn't mind - he ate Matthew's cookie while he waited for his brother to be done.
After the bouncy houses, it was time for an early lunch. Hot dogs and chips - doesn't get better than that for this group.
There was a live band playing at the food tent, so, after eating, Matthew and Noah burned some energy cutting a rug.
Mickey and Minne were at the fair.
As was Elmo (and I don't know why Matt thought he was hiding - like we're all going to think "Hey, look how high Noah can jump on his own")
On the way out of the fair we made a stop at the fire trucks where all the kiddos got hats, coloring books and pencils.
Add in some apple cider donuts, a nice drive through the NY fall foliage, and great temps, and it's a recipe for an awesome weekend. And to add to the fun, me and the boys are going to hit up another fair next weekend. Matthew is hoping they'll have bouncy houses there. I'm hoping they'll have cider donuts! That's really not a good "dieting" thing to say - but we're headed into sweater weather anyway, so I have time to work it off!
