I have some serious catching up to do! We are going way back in time for this first post. Back to the Yarmouth Clam Festival. I love this fair. It has a decent craft contingent, good music and rides galore. I dread the day when Eliot wants to go on the big rides but for now I can handle the kiddie rides. Mom's usually get to ride for free if you get a nice carnie. Eliot wasn't too keen on me tagging along this year though.
I get my yearly binge on fried dough. My Mothers birthday usually falls during fair week so that is our treat together.
We watched the parade with some friends we happened to see along the way.
Eliot and one of his best little buddies watched together. She has so much unbridled enthusiasm she gets Eliot really excited - so sweet for my usually somewhat reserved kid.
On the walk back to my Mother's house we were standing by this field watching the clouds of fire flies. The picture doesn't show much for fire flies but I liked the light and openness of it.
My garden is doing amazing things namely by producing gigantic tomatoes. My squash are just about done and my first round of beans did OK. My Hubbard and gourds seem to have some kind of bug so I hope they survive. Not enough to save but lots of plans to relocate and move around and add for next year. I am getting my soil tested this week to find out if we can plant in our soil directly without worry of contamination.
So - more updates ahead! Anything you want to know about that I have forgotten to mention let me know!
