Life goes so quickly...I remember first meeting her when I was in nursing school and it seems like yesterday. She was always kind to me and I appreciated how nice she was. It's easy to set someone on a pedestal after they are gone but she was quite ill for the last few years and yet that smile seldom left her face.
One of the things that brought the biggest smile to her face was the love of family. She would share pictures that she got in the mail from her children of the great-grands. She loved hearing stories about the new ones in our family and would always finish them with "Isn't that something?"
The circle of life seems not to stop even in the seconds that make your heart stop for a while.

The weather changed too and the wind literally blew Fall in big time!
As for the "Free Saturday"...we got up today and read the paper. We knew that babysitting Bryden was part of our day and we saw three Fall festivals happening in our little town. We had time to go to two. The temp had really turned cooler and it was very windy so we bundled up and headed out. The first festival was at an orchard where they were giving wagon rides...FREE.
They also had FREE caramel apples, popcorn and hot dogs!! Yum! The lines weren't too long yet but I felt sorry for the clean-up crew because the wind caused many a paper plate and napkin to go flying!
We went on to festival number two which was a farm. It is known for it's wonderful produce and also for pumpkins this time of year. There was a FREE horse drawn wagon ride out to the pumpkin patches.
There were not FREE food stands here, where the wind was taking down some of the decorations. (not sure where it was putting some of the help too...)
There was also a FREE petting zoo, and hay maze for the kids that ended in this slide. Bryden went down about 25 time and loved every minute.

There was a lot of end-of-summer partying going on as we saw many boats that "link-up" for that purpose.
