Harvest Fest Sunday

Apple pie with lattice upper crustImage via WikipediaI'm trying to remember where I left off. I feel like I haven't been here in ages, though it was only a couple days.

Cory had to work at Harvest Fest at State Fair Park all day Sunday, so Jeffrey and I took him, and then ran around all day. Actually, after we got Cory to work at 9am, we waited around for the woman who was supposed to be working with him. She didn't show up until 10am, when the Harvest Fest was supposed to open. In the meantime, Cory and Jeffrey had found the Golden Guernsey van and stocked the booth with milk, though they couldn't get to the cash box because Jeffrey didn't have a key. So, we were going through our pockets and purses to see what small bills and change we had so Cory would at least have something to start the day with. Then she showed up and got the cash box, so they were good to go, and we left.

We went to breakfast at Denny's and then did some shopping at Sam's. No, we didn't buy any air tools but we did buy practically everything else. We hadn't been there in a while, so it was time to stock up. Then we went back to the Harvest Fest and walked around. It was interesting - a flea market, farmer's market, food booths, fun stuff for kids like pony rides, camel rides, pumpkin bowling, and a little train. We spent a bit of time there. Jeffrey bought some sundae glasses and thought about getting a wallet, but didn't. I had a slice of apple pie from the Elegant Farmer, we got some beef jerky for Cory, and I bought some apples, green peppers, and butternut squash. I wish I had been thinking and not bought apples at Sam's, but I know Cory will eat them because they're his favorite, Granny Smith. We just have a lot of apples now.

We left a couple hours before Cory was supposed to get off work and went and got something to eat - instead of spending more than we had to by buying something there - and we felt we'd seen enough. About the time we finished eating and left Wendy's, Cory called and said he was finished with work, so we ran by and picked him up and came on home.
