Lavender fields

Well, once again we have been off on more adventures than I can keep up with writing about! Perhaps some day I will get caught up with sharing them with you! Our next round of family, AKA Grandma, arrived and we were off again exploring!! :)

This week found us at our first soccar game (yes I'm officially a soccar mom!), the farmers market and a local lavender festival too!!

Just a short drive from the nearest town, you will find the sweetest little lavender farm Mountain Meadow. From what I understand, this is only the second year of doing this festival and it was small but not too small and not so crowded (you know how I am about those!) that you couldn't enjoy it! :)

They had an antique car show....

 Crafts for the kids to make...

And then of course... there was lavender!!! :)

It was a simple outing, nothing flashy but we so enjoyed it!! After sampling the lavender icecream and lavender lace cookies... we came home with some lavender ready to bake with and two pots ready to plant!! I see more lavender goodness in our future don't you!? :)
