It's a coming!

A definite Fall feel in the air today. Very cool, and off and on showers. Last night I was raking apples and with the wind blowing leaves out of my trees, I had the feeling Summer was long gone. I am fine with it. We had a lovely Summer but I am ready for all things Autumn. Cool days, football, baking and one pot meals. 

Catching up. A big event that my daughter and I attend in August is called Chicks and Chaps. A fundraiser for breast cancer. But they actually support all cancers. It consists of a Rodeo clinic, tasty food and drink and even tastier cowboys. We always have such a great time and this was our 9th year (last year was cancelled) Emily is known for her outfits and she did not disappoint this year. In fact, she was the hit of the day, the organizers just love her. She made that hat! And our special BFF bracelets.  😊 Not only did she look lovely but she rode the bull and did some calf roping and in high heels! We had such fun. And as you can see, (middle pic, second collage) I was pretty tired out by the end of the day. But it was so worth it.

We also took in the fair. It was lovely to see all the exhibits and the kids won ribbons! I got to wander about the animals and hold hands with my best guy. 

 Well, this day is coming to a close and it has been a good one. My Broncos won and my Angel Food cake came out yummy. Always, Kit

Kit - YAY! So happy to have you at Mosaic Monday, my fellow Montana buddy! I have always enjoyed your Chicks and Chaps posts, and this is no exception. Your Emily looks every inch the movie star! And ooh la la - smooching at the fair! You almost look like teenagers!
