A CareFREE weekend!


After some much needed yard work, Andrew and I decided to finally check out Niska-Day, an annual community day, right down the street from our house.  We’ve known about Niska-Day since moving into our house almost 2 years ago (stay tuned for our Two Year House-iversary post on or around June 1st), but haven’t had the chance to check it out.  I thought there would be an admission, but lucky us…it was FREE!  We like free =)

There were lots of rides to choose from. Sadly, we did not partake. If only we had a child…


Lots of yummy treats, too…


but I saved myself for the best fair/festival food of them all…


I did not feel moved to share.


FREE pony rides, but I was pretty sure there was a weight limit.


There was a rock climbing wall, food, games, rides and lots of tents full of craft vendors (I bought an olive dish from a local pottery lady), local businesses, and Niskayuna sports teams and organizations raising money.  Andrew checked out the rowing team tent…


and he decided to put a 16-year-old to shame…


This picture was taken after that kid fell off of the machine.  Andrew won a Niskayuna rowing team t-shirt.  Score!

All-in-all, it was a really nice (and FREE) afternoon.  It was great weather and we were glad to finally check out this awesome annual event.  If you have kids, definitely check this out next year!

    Awesome post, honey! I laughed myself off my chair! Somewhere, that crushed 16-year old is prepping himself for a rowing rematch next year : )
