We went to AppleFest out at Wachusett Mountain not too long ago. It was a nice day & Prue is now at the age where going to events like this is fun 🙂 We saw Lydia of Sweet Lydias (She had a table selling her delicious s’mores at the event) Lydia was kind enough to give us a pass for the skyride. They were running the ski lifts up to the top of the mountain. It was a fun trip up the mountain. Prue did great & then we spent some time walking around the summit. The way down the mountain was another story (you’ll see what I mean). It was nice getting out in the fresh fall air, hopefully we can go back again next year.
Prue loved playing on this swing set, all she wanted to do was climb the side (she even did it a few times without me helping her up, I just spotted her) After she got up she didn’t want to go down the slide, she just wanted to jump to me. I kept trying to encourage her to go down the slide, but she had different plans (of course)
Almost to the top! On the way up the sky ride.
A family photo on our ride up, while Prue doesn’t look super happy she had fun going up. Another “family” photo. I love the way Prue’s Hello Kitty socks look with her shoes. If you ask her who the cat is, she tells you it’s Phoebe (one of our cat’s)
We made it to the top and Prue was able to run around a bit. She kept running to Drew & then turning around to run back to me. I asked Prue to stand next to Drew for a photo and this is the pose she did. I nearly died, and almost didn’t get it because she moved so fast. The one on the right is her saying “cheese” A few minutes later when it was my turn for a photo with Miss Prue she was already over it, and didn’t want to take her “B” out. Drew hates photos of her with her “B”, I don’t really mind, if it means she isn’t throwing a fit so I can have her stand next to me, then I am good. Waiting to get back on the ski lift for the ride down. eeek! A little scarier on the ride down for sure, but amazing views. Drew was in charge of all photos on the ski lift so I could hold onto Prue tightly. I told you the ride down wasn’t as fun, she started to get fussy. For a minute I was freaking out, but I just bundled her up in her blanket and we snuggled and she was good the rest of the way down. After the skyride, Prue wanted to go play in the bouncing house. At first I thought she was too little so we weren’t letting her go on, but she was FREAKING out, and wanted to go so badly. It wasn’t too crowded so she was able to go inside it. She had a BLAST. It was so funny watching her bounce all over the place. It wasn’t as fun to take her out. There were kids screaming and crying all around because they were upset that they had to get out to let other kids have a turn. I begrudgingly shared my fried dough with Prue.
My adult cider and Drew’s beer. Prue so badly wanted to drink my cider!
It was a great day, we went home with some yummy cider donuts. Prue only a had a few melt downs, but overall was pretty good. We even came home with a painted pumpkin. Though Prue picked out the Dora one, we tried badly to encourage her to pick the black cat. We kept telling her it was like Jake (my parent’s black cat) but she didn’t cave & kept asking for Dora.
