Old-Fashioned Farm Days

Saturday we headed out to Siler City for the Silk Hope Old Fashioned Farmers Day event.  I had seen it in the paper and thought it might be cool.  Above - the girls are enjoying their "steam cream" while watching various clogging teams. 
 Lily's highlight was the pony ride.  On her back is "Jeremy,"  her class mascot.  She was the first kid at school this year to get to bring him home for the weekend.  We were supposed to take him on a family outing so she could write in the journal about it.

 Feeding one of three animals they had for kids to pet.

 Madeleine on the climbing wall.  They also had jump houses, but it was $7 each for an "all you can jump" pass, and it wasn't worth it for two kids who would maybe spend 15 minutes on the three jump houses.

Overall, they were not into the tractors or the blacksmithing (a bunch of dudes getting metal hot and hitting it with a hammer).  They had some live music and were interested in a family performing with little girls on the banjo and violin.
