Field trip to Lazy S Ranch

My niece had a field trip today to Lazy S Ranch here in Fluvanna county. She is in the 4 year old program at Camp Friendship. The kids got to go through a corn maze, a hay maze, climb on the hay bails and take their picture with a teddy bear made of hay. We rode a hay ride were we saw longhorn cows, a donkey and a pony. Then off we went to go pick pumpkins. Krista and her little sister, Kilee, had a ruff decision on which pumpkin to pick. After picking the perfect pumpkin it was time for lunch. We sat under the beautiful autumn trees and ate our lunches. All the kids had a blast. Thanks, Miss Pat and all the helpers for a fun day!!

Peach Jam wins 1st place

The fall season is here and so are the great fall festivals. My local area has "Old Farm Day". It is a big event for our small county. I entered my peach jam and spiced apple rings. The jam won 1st place and the apple's won 2nd place. I'm not sure on how many entries there were, but not many. It is still exciting for me to win. I have only been canning and making homemade jams for about 3 years, a long ways from being pro. I enjoy making them. I use alot of my homemade jams for Christmas presents. I have more and more requests for them each year. The date on the camera pic is wrong, haven't figured out how to change that.
