A trip to the zoo and Harvest Festival

Last Thursday was a beautiful day so the kiddos and I took advantage of the fall weather and headed to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse.

This zoo is perfect for the preschool/toddler crowd. Five years from now it will likely seem too small, but it's just the right amount of fun for those with short legs and short attention spans! Two hours of fun walking around is about all our crew can take!

Dylan was not terribly impressed with the zoo. Hopefully next year he'll be able to enjoy it!

We made this trip last year also (post here) and had an equally good time.  Below is a comparison between the kids last year (bottom) and now (top). A lot changes in a year!

The difference a year makes =)

After our fun during the week we stopped by Ithaca's Apple Harvest Festival this weekend. Ithaca's calendar is full of festivals that offer local fun and flavor and this one was no exception.

The streets were full of caramel apples, face painting, music, games and, much to Noelle's delight, a Ferris Wheel!


Her very first ride!
I have vivid memories of my first Ferris Wheel ride when I was Noelle's age. It was with my maternal grandfather =) I hope Noelle's memories stick around too!

Unfortunately, Cora was too far below the height cutoff to squeeze in. It's tough being the little sister! Her consolation prize was playing a rubber ducky game for prizes. She 'won' twice and selected a ball as her prize each time.

Which duck should I pick?
