Heritage Harvest Festival...
In our effort to get the kids out to local events, we took them to the Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello this afternoon. This is a festival celebrating local foods and seed saving and we went more to get out and see the sights than to actually learn about seeds (there is no way to keep little folks quiet enough for the free classes).
We had a blast and enjoyed a lot of local foods... tomatoes, watermelons, cantaloupes and peppers. We also got to buy a few things like organic lemonade, homemade donuts and homemade organic popsicles.
We also had a nice time enjoying the weather, which has turned cool in the few nights.
This was also the first chance to the kids to ride a bus as we had to park off-site and get bused on to Monticello, home of President Thomas Jefferson.
It was a beautiful day!
