Friday was Taste of the Valley in Petawawa. I haven't heard any 'official' reports, but we had a good enough day. We sold a little more than our average Friday Farmers' Market. We certainly talked to more people, and that's good advertising. Our farm stand is right on highway 17 (Trans Canada Highway) and so many people say 'we see you sign all the time but don't know if we should come in'. So it's good to talk with them and say 'please come in'. Personally, I'm not sure why we would have the sign on the front lawn if we didnt' want customers??? It was wonderful setting up and putting away because Colin came with me and I didn't have to do all the heavy lifting myself.
Saturday night was the 156th Renfrew Fair. I was going to dazzle you all with wonderful pictures of a beaming Ella, but the battery in our camera died -I forgot to charge the thing Friday night. Daddy did get one picture. We're waiting in line for the carousel. It's one of Ella's favourites. I like that the parent can ride for free to hold the child on the horse. You should hear Ella when she rides!
My Dad and Stepmother were up for the weekend. They came with us to the Fair and had a good time. Dad even said it was better than the Peterborough Fair, which is a much bigger town/area. We had a really nice visit and Ella enjoyed playing with Grandpa Jim and Grandma Linda.
