Fall follies

My family of four is establishing traditions without even trying. In the last couple of weeks we've attended our third autumn Milford Community Picnic and third closing day at DQ. I remember last year so vividly that I can't believe the photos. Maizey is such a baby. And Lucy?! (Not to mention our first year.)

The horses were back (Maizey was NOT thrilled at having to wait in line to ride, however).

And Lucy had her first mounted equine encounter.

Not quite how she imaged it, I guess?

Bean bags were back.

But this time Lucy was around to annoy Maizey get in the way.

Dad played interference.

And Lu moved on to other endeavors.

Happily, this year we shared the tradition with BFFs Jack, Ryan and Jaclyn. (Otherwise known as Nestor Will's other family - and my sister wife.)

 (that's Ryan peeking through Jaclyn's legs)

After all the dancing, Jack went to get Maizey some juice.
Alone. (Adorbs, right.)

While she warmed up the sack. 

I could spend hours captioning these, if I had hours to spend. But, I don't.
In short: competition master Will was WAY into it. Jack was WAY into Will. Maizey was WAY into Jack. And the crowd was way into the toddlers trying to compete.

(Will's face?)

I don't know who had more fun. Us watching or them running.
