Harvest Fair Fun

One of my favorite Fall kick off activities is the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. We enjoyed a beautiful and warm day there on Sunday. Thank goodness we got out because we are now on our third day of rain. I'm already missing my summer! The Harvest Fair is mainly a wine tasting event, but it also has fun stuff for the kids to do and is an all around celebration of Sonoma County agriculture.

My little farm hands took in the cow milking demo and then tried their hands at milking on this lovely cow that stands very still and doesn't poop! Ella's technique was quite good.

We pet the goats

and searched the straw for plastic eggs.

The girls flew airplanes

and went down the big slide.

We finished the day with a lego building competition.

On the way out we had to stop for a quick look at the huge pumpkins
