Summer's gone but not forgotten

Remember not too long ago when it was summer, and it was hot??? You know, hot enough to sit for hours in a pool of cool water?

Well folks, here comes fall, like it or not!
I've noticed since we moved back to the valley that the weather here is VERY literal. On the coast, it was kind of warm and partly sunny, partly rainy half the year, and kind of cold and rarely sunny, mostly rainy the other half. Not a huge difference though.
Here, it was HOT in the summer. Hot enough to go sit in a cold pool of water all afternoon! Something that just never happened on the coast! lol.

And now that it is Autumn, the leaves are already falling, and the weather has turned cool and rainy, I wanted to look back on some of the best moments of summer.

Near summers end, Grandpa took us all to the Enchanted Forest, a great little theme park that is only about 20 minutes from our new house, where almost all of the rides and activities are aimed at a small children, not older ones. We had SO much fun. There is a storybook lane with tons of fun activities.

Also, kiddie rides galore!

There was also a haunted house, a dragon and monster shooting ride, Medieval village, a live comedy play of Little Red Riding Hood, western town (where Liz got her picture taken with Honest Abe),

and lots more. We forgot to bring our nice Camera :( but Grandpa was smart enough to snap a few shots on his camera phone,
It was fun for the whole family! :)

The hottest day out was at the Air and Art festival. During the day, we had lots of fun feeding the ducks, wondering around the art booths and displays, and playing in the kids art area.

It was sooo hot that day, I mean sweating in the shade, red faced hot! We all tried to stay in the shade during the hottest part, while Liz crafted her alien/bug own antenna.

Later that evening when it started getting dark there was a very cool air balloon light show.

And after that, there was a cool laser light show. That was a really great day!

Yeah, so this has absolutely nothing to do with sewing, but no worries, I'll get back to that soon enough!
In the meantime, stay warm and dry, and enjoy the new season, but remember the fun of summer!
