Saturday was our family's annual fall festival. A lot of work goes into putting this together ~ it's so wonderful when it all turns out beautifully! Chris and the men-folk were up early to cook chicken at the meat market. The women and children came afterwards and we finished getting things set up.
Soon, vendors arrived and began getting their places set up....
The weather was beautiful and people started arriving right at 9am. Soon, we were full of people! I was helping my mom make homemade doughnuts so I was only able to capture a few pictures quickly (as we always had a line of people to serve)...
The doughnut/fry making station (where I was all day)....
The petting zoo and pony rides were big hits with children!
It was a beautiful day and we were given lots of compliments. I think some people may have been unhappy about some of the long lines for food...but with that many people there...as well as making some of the food right there, fresh ~ we truly did the best we could. Each year we try to improve and I think the festival has gotten better each year. This year was the most successful, I believe, as we had over 70 vendors and a beautiful God-given day! :)
Thank-you for stopping by and sharing in our day with us virtually! If you are local and came by ~ we appreciate it!!
Also, if you have emailed me lately and not received a reply, please know I have been having a lot of internet problems with our provider. We can't seem to keep our internet hooked up. It will come on for a few seconds and then off it goes again. I am hoping to publish this post when it connects again, quickly. It is quite frustrating as we have been dealing with this for weeks (months even). We've had techs here and gotten a new modem, new wiring and basically everything is great on our end...but there has to be a box or something messed up somewhere along the lines. I *really* hope they can get it fixed soon because this is frustrating (we also use Easy Peasy online curriculum for our homeschooling...without internet, we can't do what we need to get done!). So please know I am not ignoring you ~ just having internet connection issues!
