Peachy Keen

Today was a GLORIOUS day!


For our first time, we traipsed out to Hurricane (pronounced Hurr-i-kin) and attended Peach Days! I had friends who were playing in a band, a couple of friends with booths and of course, B wanted some peaches!

First, we hit up our FRAMILY- Casey & Jocelyn were working at a booth for their church, Mountain View Bible Church.

They had free otter pops!!!

Then, after purchasing some amazingly delicious tamales, we hung out and watched C Wesley and the Revenant play some super awesome music.

The keyboardist & bassist are a part of the worship team at SMCC and I'm friends with Charley, the lead vocalist. They did an amazing job!! I heard they got a couple leads out of it too!

I had an itching for some shopping, so we were off to the booths!

My #wildunicorn friend, Jen, had her booth, Nella's Cottage, full of crocheted goodies, lamps, stars and jewelry (I scored some awesome feather earrings).

My very very good friend Twila, had her booth, Twila Kellie, also full of crocheted goodies, headbands, coozies (she made our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle beanies for the girls at the new year). I was so happy to see her!

I ran into my boy, Vince, and his girlfriend, Amber- I was so happy to see them!!! Vince has been my boy for over 6 years.

And, of course, the Sackaugherty Clan had fun:

We have WAY too much fun when we hang out with framily.

It's the moooost wonderful tiiiiime of the yeaaaaar!

Well...okay, it's not THE most wonderful time of the year, but it's that time of year where wonderful things start coming in the form of cool mornings, cooler evenings, pumpkiny tasting and cinnamony smelling things, slouchy beanies and cardigans. I even have some yellowed leaves falling onto the grass in our backyard.

That's right, my is fallmer. Fall in the morning, summer in the afternoon....FALL IS ON ITS WAY!

You're welcome.

Never Ever, Ever Grow Up! NO!

Peter Pan has been a longtime favorite of mine and I was so excited that it was showing at Tuacahn this summer. B & I decided to take the girls last minute. I'm so glad we did.

Getting ready to head out, grab some churros and get our Pan on!

At this point, the girls were more excited about getting churros.

Churros, happiness and waiting for Daddy to get there.

Here we go!

The girls loved it, I loved was magical and it was even better watching the girls. Their eyes were wide with wonder, wishing they could fly like Peter and sail on a pirate ship.

They were OVER THE MOON meeting Peter. Piper got his autograph and her smile stretched a mile wide.

They also got to meet one of the Lost Boys, Curly- he complimented each of the girls on something they were wearing and you could hear the giggles across the lobby.

The magic of Neverland has always been a part of my secret heart; the intrigue of never growing up, the belief in fairies, etc. Part of it always makes me sad that childhood is so fleeting; fleeting for myself, fleeting for my children.

And part of me will always love Peter for his boyish charm, the cleverness of himself. I will cheer for him when he crows, romp with Tiger Lily and fight Hook. While I grow older, I will always be a Wendy inside. I will always be waiting for him to swoop in and fly me away to Neverland...just follow the golden arrows, second star on the right, straight on 'til morning.
