Today is a little off for my family. We all have head colds, and yes that includes our little babe. 😦
We did come off of a pretty good weekend though. Saturday we went to the Wild Wind craft festival. The Tamarack Center has my favorite exhibit. They are a rehabilitation center for wild animals of all kinds.
They have all kinds of hawks, owls, eagles, and other animals.They get calls and go pick up these animals and nurse them back to health before releasing them back into the wild.
Some animals will never be able to return to the wild but they raise them all the same. The rest of the exhibits were in the barns that are usually full of animals for the fair. There were about 10 barns full of handmade crafts, it is pretty amazing.
We had to take a foo break with the little one. 😀
Then it was back at it, with more to see!
My wife’s favorite thing at this festival is a place called Holiday Confections. They make candy apples, iced coffee, and other candies.
Here she is picking her poison this year.
Another cool stop is The Hit-N-Miss Ice Cream Co. They have an old engine churning their ice cream.
Here it is in action:
Sunday we had my niece’s 1st birthday party. We had the chance to see a few family members that we don’t usually get to see. They rented a pavilion and set up shop. It was a great day for it, not too hot and not too cold. Here she is opening some presents.
One of Rory’s great aunts, I believe, made these cookies for her! On the plus side they were delicious.
A friend of my sister in-law made her this little cake!
Then it was time for her to have her first taste of cake.
The rest of Sunday was spent hanging out for a bit, and sadly letting the sickness sink in. We are all congested and he is taking it the hardest, because he is a wee baby. I made him his own little spot to sit up like a big boy.
That was the best he looked. He soon got puffy red eyes, with gunk in them. He was coughing, and couldn’t breath out his nose too well. Later the Cowboys played so I had to stay up for their opener. They beat the Giants 19-3 and that is a huge win for them. Last year they were the only team to beat us in the regular season.
It’s a bad picture but it is just there to get the message across haha. We had a terrible nights sleep, and are dead dog tired today. This all of course on top of feeling like crap. Everett has an appointment with the doctor at 1 and I am going to take the afternoon off to rest myself. That is all from me today. I hope you all had a great weekend! I’ll see you all tomorrow! 😀 😀
