Our end-of-summer ritual … going to the Goshen Fair.  It’s not often that our family separates – but this time Zoe was hell-bent on seeing all the cute animals and Ezra wanted to hit Lime Rock for their annual Classic Car Show.  So my girl and I got a day on our own:

How did I forget to post these pretty pictures? Nothing is more Americana than the Memorial Day ceremonies in West Cornwall CT – with their quaint parade of old fashioned cars, firetrucks and carnival afterwards. We did the Cakewalk again around the Maypole and Brad even won a cake covered in gummy worms!

I haven’t seen much of the ocean this summer, but the kids have been getting their fill of the lake. I had no idea that there was a Water Sport weekend here in the month of August – it was such fun. A slip and slide, cannon ball diving contests, sand castle building, and scavenger hunts for coins that you later turn in for prizes. And my favorite part: lakeside dinners.
