Today's activities made up for a whole week's worth of sitting around. After a busy morning at the Gardener's market, and a midday nap, Isla, Roscoe and I headed south down the highway about 10 miles to the American West Heritage Centre for their Fall Harvest Festival.
Although the last day of summer has come and gone, the halloween garb and goodies are appearing on shelves and fall colours are fashionable again (which is good for me since that is all I own), it certainly doesn't feel like fall here. Rather I feel like we are suspended in this never ending summer timewarp, where temperatures are still reaching into the 30's by mid afternoon.
I'm not complaining, just commenting on the strange warm weather that just doesn't seem to want to quit.
Needless to say it was a lovely afternoon to stroll about the grounds, similar to a living history site, like Heritage Park in Calgary. The festival events were targeted perfectly for Isla's age. Lots of great activities for kids and adults, everything from the popular corn maze, a pie eating contest, an old fashioned carnival for kids, petting zoo, ponyrides and more!
Here's a recap of our day in pictures:
