P365 – Day 93 autumn festival (Sunday Selections)
On a chilly, windy autumn day, where the rain threatened but never arrived, we went to our town’s Autumn Festival.
After a bumpy start, where the ever-present wind blew Juniordwarf’s lunch off the table, upsetting him to the point he wanted to go home . . . ‘I don’t want to be here,’ he said . . . we had a lovely day – me, Juniordwarf and my Mum. Slabs spend most of the day on the community radio station marquee, promoting the station and fund-raising.
Here are some photos of what we got up to over the course of the day . . . which have become my photos for frogpondsrock‘s Sunday Selections project. (Go on over and check it out!)
Juniordwarf rode on a pony. Here’s two little feet.
We saw a pit of snakes. Juniordwarf was really into the snakes. I was worried at one point that he wanted to jump in there with them.
We got the best value entertainment for $3 on this climbing maze, which kept Juniordwarf entertained for at least 45 minutes. I’m not sure if he was meant to stay on for that long, but there wasn’t a crowd waiting to get on and no one told him to get off, so if he was happy, we were happy.
. . . or have a relaxing glass of wine (2004 Riesling from Kinvarra Estate, if you’re interested).
And he insisted on getting a lollypop. ( I just realised I don’t know how to spell ‘lollypop’. Is it ‘lollypop’? or ‘lollipop’? Or doesn’t it matter?)
All in all, we had a really fun day.
Oh he was so upset about it. It happened to him one other time when we were having lunch in a cafe and he'd chosen to sit right next to the door. An ill timed gust of wind when someone came in & all his chips blew off onto the floor. I think there were only 2 left so it wasn't a major disaster, but to him it was the end of the world!
It does look as if you had fun! Poor Junior Dwarf, getting his lunch blown away. Children do hate having their food disappear, don't they?
It was fun! Once we got over the lunch blowing away. The snakes looked very cool. They fascinate me.
Fantastic photos! Love the snake. The stunt photo was a lucky shot!
WOW sure looks like a massive fun day. Hope your week is as much fun too ;~)
Oh Wow! it looks like a great day out. I saw the signs but then forgot about it 🙁 Next year for sure.
It does look like so much fun.
