There was however a 1927 steam engine and caboose to climb aboard
Pumpkins to decorate
And of course the real reason for the trip, a visit to Abigayle's Quiltery
Brian and Ivy kindly took a walk outside to buy some candied nuts (and a jar of handcream with the name Monkey Farts Hand Cream. It's made with beeswax and apricot kernel oil and it smells wonderful, nothing like monkey farts, or what I'd imagine monkey farts to smell like. I tried to get a picture but the camera conked out.) and allowed me to browse peacefully--initially Ivy had come in and while she was doing great in about five minutes she'd planned out six new projects for me, including a dragon costume as well as a stuffed dragon toy. So overall, a fun day out and the weather was fantastic--sunny and crisp, perfect fall weather. It's finally here, I need to make sure I enjoy it!
