Muffin Tin Monday

Yippee, it's Muffin Tin Monday! Since we will be in Houston for Ava's upcoming surgery, I don't know if we will be able to post a muffin tin lunch next week. Never fear! We will be back on track the following week! :)

Ava, Animals, and Motion Blur! Oh My!

Ava and I decided to take a few pictures while we were playing today. We were even able to capture a couple of cool motion shots!

First we messed up rearranged Mommy's curtains!

Then we moved on to a nice game of fetch with Lucy!

Next, we tortured played sweetly with Lilly!

Finally, Lilly decided that she'd had enough of being beaten in the face with her own fish toy sweet sisterly bonding time. So, Ava decided to cook us a wonderful snack of Bow-Tie pasta.

Followed by some water with colorful foil confetti Magical, Sparkle juice!

She determined that Lucy might also be hungry!

Lucy followed Ava into the kitchen where she proceeded to be hand fed her lunch. One piece of kibble at a time!

During this entire time Lola relaxed in a box, blissfully unaware of the craziness fun that was taking place all around her!

Hope you enjoyed this little snippet of our day!

Berglangenbach Farm Fest

I dragged the family out to the Berglangenbach Farm Fest today. Actually it was a nice little festival and everyone enjoyed it (that is after we drove in circles for an hour and were finally able to locate it)! 

There were over 100 venders present. I snaped a few shots of some of the craftsmen and their products.
Here are some people working hard on their craft!

And here are a few finished products

Check out the size of this bread! Bread (Brot) is one of the few things I can actually say in German!

And what farm festival would be complete without tractors?

I, personally, love a good craft festival, but I realize that others don't always share my passions. Knowing that, the real reason I chose this festival was for the farm animals! 
Here's a few now!

Look at the size of this rabbit! What are they feeding these critters? Could it be the really huge loaves of bread!

The main attraction, for Ava, was definitely the horses! She loved looking at all of them!

In fact she loved them so much that we decided to take a pony ride!

First, we watched the other kids ride the horses around the ring....
Then, we waited patiently in line....

When it was finally our turn, we raced over to the horses! Things were looking good! 

But when I picked Ava up to put her on the horse, she suddenly had a change of heart! She freaked out and the waterworks began. She clung to and clawed at me with superhuman strength.

So, instead, we decided to pet the nice horsey and exit the ring.

This was Ava's very favorite horse!
