Utah has a lovely little weekend they call UEA break where you are supposed to go deer "huntin" but... we don't hunt. So we went to California instead. We miss our family out there and don't get to see them nearly enough, so a five day weekend was the perfect opportunity! Richard and Marilyn spoiled us with so may fun activities. One of the main reasons we went out was so I could get my Apple Hill fix, we went a couple of years ago and I fell in love with it. It's this beautiful orchard in the foothills of the Sierra mountains. You drive in and park between the trees and go in to the festival/farmers market full of anything and everything apple you could ever dream of. We tried it all of course. Plus there's an adorable pumpkin patch and a fishing pond and the weather is straight from heaven. Evan went back the next day to go golfing with his dad.
They also introduced me to Fairytale Town this time around and I just couldn't get enough! Its an adorable park in Sacramento with a huge playground all centered around fairy tales. Winnie the Pooh, Robinhood, Cinderella, they even have real animals for the three little pigs story and Mary's little lamb... its just precious. Winston's favorite part was the Swiss cheese tunnel, he thought it was pretty hysterical to crawl back and forth inside that thing. Evan is slowly but surely trying to convince me that Northern California is where we belong, and I have to say if he can keep producing charming details like Apple Hill and Fairytale Town, he will succeed.
I don't have pictures of the rest of the trip but we spent lots of time hanging out with family, eating good food, and enjoying no responsibilities. Of course we love going out to visit for the holidays, but there was something about being on vacation over a random weekend that was much more relaxing. Thanks for entertaining us Fox family, we'll be back soon!
