The girlie & I went to Pie Palooza on Sunday, which is an annual event that we've been attending for years. There are many sweet & savory pies that have been donated & made by area chefs using local ingredients. The proceeds support REAP Food Group programs, which promote the inclusion of healthy, local, sustainably grown foods in schools, restaurants, food stores, & home kitchens. Both of us care about those things, but...PIE! 
Between the 2 of us, we had: Tomato & Winter Squash Pie (the galette looking piece on the left) from Deb's Lunch; Honey Lavender Pie from Mermaid Cafe (on the right); Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, & Montrachet Pie from Lilliana's; Chocolate Vanilla Custard Pie from Harvest; & 2 mini quiches that we shared from Water House in Leek, Potato, Rosemary & Pumpkin Wild Rice. All the pie was delicious. Duh. In looking at the list of pie's from that day, I wonder...WHY?! did we not have Smoked Duck Confit & Fruit Pie available during our seating?! Tragic. 

After Pie! we took pictures in the park next to Kate's house. I LOVED the color of this dress from Igigi, but did not love the shelf under the neckline created by the lining underneath. The sun was shining so brightly, so high in the sky, that it made it difficult to take photos. But...Girlies Riding A Hippo!
As we were getting to the park, a man & his son were walking away with a rake. He had raked a pile of leaves for his son to play in which Kate flopped down into to bask in the sun. 
Kate is wearing a dress by NY Collection via Gwynnie Bee, which has another printed panel in the back of the dress. 
In the evening, the girlie & I drove to Spring Green to see our last play of the season at American Players Theatre, Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The necklace I originally picked out to wear to pie did not work out because of its length, so at night I chose to double this long necklace & attach a ribbon to tie it together & pinned this brooch onto the chain.
