What a fun weekend! Rick, Zack, and I left for Pennsylvania on Friday for the Shippensburg Corn Festival. Last year, it was about 100 degrees outside. This time, it was overcast, intermitantly drizzling, and cool enough that many wore sweatshirts. But I'll take that any day over heat!
The weather certainly didn't keep people away -- if anything, it improved things. People weren't so miserably hot that all they could think of was getting indoors, and the early-birds were out in force. A number of folks who had purchased last year were back (thank you!) and I met so many terrific people! Sales were almost triple what they were last year, so I will absolutely be back next year.
It also gave Zack a chance to hang out with his Grandma and Grandpa Anderson, and Uncle Rusty and Aunt Cindy. Rick's family lives on a farm -- Rusty and Cindy farm the land, and Rick's parents and Cindy's parents live on the land as well. Zack loved seeing the cows and the dozens of hummingbirds that were a constant fixture on the front porch. And he and Spice the Cat made meow-music -- meow for meow they talked to each other.
And to end this blog on a sweet note, take a look at my two favorite guys in the entire world. Zack loves to be read to, and no one is better at it than Daddy.
