The Way Things Used to Be

This weekend we went to the Mossy Creek Barnyard Festival where it's "the way things used to be." The festival is held twice a year. We used to go every single time it seemed, and there were load of people. My mom and I even went the day she had my twin brothers, and I remember talking as we left the festival how she hoped she had walked those babies out -- and they came in the wee hours of the next morning!

The festival does not have as many vendors as it used to nor as many people, but it is still fun to see, and they have some nice things. Most everything is handmade, and they have all sorts of items.

It's set down in the woods, in the shade of many many pine trees.

The weather was beautiful this weekend, so it was a perfect time to go.

A local women's service group sells cakes and individual slices. Here they are cutting one of my mom's red velvet cakes someone ordered for the booth.


The best red velvet cake you will ever put in your mouth!

Happy about eating cake!

To our disappointment, we found that our spoon man, Sis and D's, was not there. That was the very reason we went! I emailed him though and will soon place an order. I might do a little giveaway!

We did find some other things we liked. I got Blair some more bows for her sandals, and I got her a wooden pull toy just like we had when we were little.

Blair had a great time riding around in the stroller.

She props her feet up!

Blair loves to rock. She leans up and back to rock like a big girl!

Stopped by the motorcycles to do a little diaper change!

We let her run around a little before getting back in the car. We can't keep this one strapped in too long!

Doesn't she look like she can't find the car?!
