More about our wonderful weekend adventures



As I mentioned in my previous post about our Friday adventures, We don't get to go adventuring as much as we did when our family was younger, and now especially with the kids grown and having jobs its harder to get everyone together to enjoy anything at all. Luckily Hannah's schedule worked out where she was able to join us on our adventures all weekend long. Traci even managed to squeeze in some family time on Saturday.

On Saturday we all slept in, and had a lazy morning, and then in the afternoon we went to the Ridge Spring Harvest Festival. The website said that there was live music, a bbq cook-off, rides, crafts, and live music. The live music was until 7pm so we thought getting there around 4 was ok, but when we got there most of the crafters and some of the rides were gone. We still had a great time, and enjoyed the music and food. At home everyone is busy, or in front of a laptop or cell phone or TV, so it was great to spend some quality unplugged time together and get some fresh air.

Here are a few pictures of our day at the Ridge Spring Harvest Festival

Next we have Ms. Sassy Pants Clarissa excited in line to ride the bull..

sassy pants, grandbaby fin, grandkids, grandkid adventures, loving life, fun stuff,

Until it was her turn to "pop" on that Bull.. (she doesn't say hop she says pop.. too cute)

poor baby, grandkid fun, don't make me do it mom, no thanks, that looks scarybull ride at the fall fastival in small town ridge spring south carolina

She changed her mind, but that's ok we love her anyway

sc harvest festival, small town festival, festival fair craft show,

She did ride the train and enjoyed that

choo choo train, train ride, festival fun, riding a train, fair fun, love that girl, grandbaby, grandgirl

after that we had corn dogs and chili cheese fries, and most of us had strawberry lemonade, except Hannah who was feeling brave and tried the banana lemonade, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but not something I'd order, EVER!!! There was another thing on the menu I would also NEVER order, but it does sound interesting in a cardiac arrest sort of way... Glazed donut chicken sandwich... There was red velvet cake funnel cake, that I am hoping is at the Aiken State fair this year because I would definately try that but I didn't try it at the Harvest Festival because I was too full of other yummy things...

The most interesting thing we saw at the Ridge Spring Harvest Festival was a tractor some one had turned into a mosaic tiled work of art. It was on display atop a cement and brick pedestal and I imagine took the artist quite a while to make. I wish I could link too or atleast tell you who the artist was but I didn't see any signage, or credit given so I have no idea. But isn't it awesome?

I'm thinking Clarissa and I should try our hand at making a mosaic tile something. She is at a good age for some abstract mosaic crafting. We even got a pic of the grand girls in front of this masterpiece tractor art.

my grandgirls. love these babies, out and about on saturday, fall is in the air,

After editing the picture in lightroom however, the tractor was not visible.

fall festival fun, bluegrass music, family, and food truck delights

Ridge Spring is not a very big town, a one gas station town, main street is lined with a bank a drug store, one restaraunt, a post office, and several antique, and thrift shops. The main part of main street is about the size of 1 city block. Ridge Spring isn't a place you would go unless you enjoy antiquing and thrifting or had business there. They do however have the best meat market I have ever visited. Cone's meat market, we just love their rope sausage and vinegar hash. If you are ever there be sure to check out their meat Market.

Clarissa and I tried out a photo booth That was crazy, she didn't understand about the camera being on a timer so we didn't get our costume changes down pat, but it was fun and something we will remember for a long time. So its a great thing. I'm normally behind the camera so the rare occasions when I am in a picture I think is great because I want them to have memories that I was there with them. Something to look at one day when Im old or gone and remember that time with me.

grandkid fun, life off the plantation, a weekend adventure, fun in the sun,

After seeing everything there was to see,and doing everything there was to do, we mosied on over to where the music was happening and sat in the grass to enjoy the live concert. I wish I could tell you the name of the band because I thought they were quite good. But I can tell you Paisley enjoyed her first concert sitting in the grass..

baby paisley enjoying a day of fresh air and sunshine she is one sleepy girl

Poor tired baby was asleep before we made it home.
It was a great day, and cost us very little. Had we packed a picnic it would have been free aside from gas.
