Carriage Rides & Balloons

We went to the Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers' Market this morning ~ it was kind of brisk but the sun was shining ~ it was a nice day to be outside. We picked some baked goods and candy, and we found some really nice looking produce. My father-in-law liked the looks of the New York strip steaks and bought four of them for dinner next Monday. He's been talking about beef for a couple weeks ~ he's really looking forward to his steak dinner.
When we left the market and headed out to the parking lot again, we ran into a carriage being drawn by a couple of beautiful horses. The shopping center was offering free carriage rides...

...with Santa, and a balloon artist was making and passing out...

...Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer balloons! They were very cute!

The horses were beautiful!

The rest of the day was very full ~ I did some decorating, more shopping and then all my children and the two grandbabies came to visit.
This is how my day ended up! Hugs with the babies!!
