So, this weekend we went to a cranberry festival in Wareham, Ma which is about a 45 min drive from us. We heard about it from Debi and Martin who were in town visiting last week. (We did a ton of fun things with them but unfortunately don't have much pictures to prove it) They took one day and went down to Cape Cod and the surrounding areas and heard about these festivals while they were checking out a cranberry bog.
There were a couple of cranberry festivals going on and we choose this one mainly because it was only $2 to get in. There was a bus that took you around to see some cranberry bogs and explain how they get picked etc. There was also a music circle that Andrew loved! He was so cute, banging drums and shaking maracas. It was cold, but thanks to his Nana he was suited up perfectly with his cute hat and sweater. The only way we could get him to keep his hat on was to have Nick have his hood on. It is so cute that Andrew already wants to be just like his Daddy.
For me the highlight was the food. We couldn't decide between fried dough and a fried snickers bar, so of course we got both. They were both amazing, although I think I prefer my fried dough with just cinnamon and sugar instead of the powdered sugar the dude that was making it poured on without even asking.
I came home with 6 lbs of cranberries and so I just made this yummy cranberry orange bread. I know I'm going to use some for Thanksgiving cranberry sauce but if you guys have any other yummy cranberry suggestions or recipes please throw them my way.

Scarfing down our fried dough. We didn't give this to him, he just launched at it. (who could blame him?)
Below is a video of me trying a fried snickers for the first time. It was pretty amazing.
