A busy fall day

Last week, our preschool theme was "G is for Garden."  I wanted to take a trip to a you-pick-it farm to reinforce that garden theme, but since Casey wasn't home we decided to wait and take the field trip on a day when he could participate.

Well, since we don't get all that many days with daddy present, when he is home we end up filling our days chalk full of family fun.

Case and point?  This particular day included a morning trip to Miller Farms, eating and napping in the car and an afternoon visit to Breckenridge for Oktoberfest.  Whew!

First up: Miller Farms.

Miller Farms is so awesome, because they take you out into the fields where the kids had an absolute ball picking potatoes, onions, pumpkins, kale, corn, and oh so much more.

After this, we made a quick stop at home to change and drop off the produce, before getting right back into the car to head into the mountains for Oktoberfest in Breckenridge.

It has been many years - many - since we made that trek.

In fact, the last time was when I had bangs and 2/3rd of our people didn't exist.  The one who did looked like that!

That little face has changed a bit.

Not to mention, we've added some other pretty cute faces, as well.

The kids had an awesome time.  It was the first day of Oktoberfest, and we were up there at about 3:00 on a Friday, so things were still very family friendly and pretty G rated.  With the obvious exception of more than a few rather revealing lederhosen.  Still, the kids loved walking through the streets and enjoying all the festivities.

There were food booths, bounce castles, and activities, but the kids most enjoyed getting their faces painted.

And the food.  Yum.  Drool.  Can we go back today???  How is it that food can taste so good when it's served out of a tiny outdoor tent?

I adore those little faces!

And that one, too.  We're pretty lucky that he is the kind of daddy who comes home from being on the road and can't wait to spend time making wonderful family memories.

Although there were some moments where tempers flared, it was overwhelmingly a day spent enjoying each other.  We're pretty lucky!
