On Saturday we decided to take a family day and stay closer to home. After a lazy day of playing with the dog and just enjoying the rainy day, the wet weather cleared, and we headed to David Roger's Park for the country fair. We always enjoy the old fashioned games and crafts and hanging out with our friends who do blacksmithing there. It's a slow paced time where we can just sit around and watch good entertainment done the old way. This year was especially fun as another family joined up with us and added to the festivities with their participation.
Then onto the pie eating contest. Our friends two boys were selected to participate and boy did they make it a lot more fun to watch. Ian and Micah did a great job chowing down on that pie! I probably took way too many pictures, but I just couldn't resist all their facial expressions and mouths full of pie!
We sure try to keep our children focused on the little things, the things that really affect people's hearts and encourage others for good. We try to not get caught up in fast paced activities that keep our family constantly on the go. We try to do more things that revolve around nature, music, and hands on activities.
