The weekend I’ve been dreading has come and gone. The last weekend of summer. Say it ain’t so!
It was tiring but eventful.
We started off at 8 a.m with a princess photoshoot for Ms. Jayla’s birthday. The photographer was so patient with her. She was quite impressed that she wasn’t even three yet meanwhile I still can’t believe in less than a month I’ll have a three year old!!! Can time please SLOW down!
Afterwards we went on a trip to the nation’s capital for storytelling in the gardens. I had no idea we were heading to Georgetown. We read about apples and sang nursery rhymes before following our tour guide (my daughter) for a stroll in the garden.
Getting a little guidance
The finished product. Viola!
An apple craft to help us say bye, bye to Summer and hello to Fall

After making the drive back home we picked up the twins and hubby and went to the Charles County Fair.
I can’t even recall the last time I’ve been to a fair. I probably was in high school. I graduated high school back in 2001 so that gives you an idea of just how long ago it’s been.
We watched goats and pigs compete for the coveted trophy and bragging rights. Lol it was actually quite entertaining. It was also entertaining watching my daughter tell kids that they couldn’t ride in the same cars with her. Lol
Mama still got it!!
I won my first attempt then lost the second game trying to upgrade my prize then my daughter wanted to play so I sat her on my lap and guess what…WE WON. She was too excited!!
Meet our new friend Marvin the monkey.
I don’t know what was more fun for her going on the rides or winning the monkey. I know for me it was seeing the excitement on her little face and spending quality time with my family.
We ended the night a little after 8 (an hour pass the twins bedtime) jamming and dancing to oldies.
Today was a good day!
Summer, I bit you adieu, until next year. 😥
