Weekend Fun [Carnival and a Sprinkle]

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

This past weekend our parish had its first annual festival so we decided to get the cousins together and check it out Friday night. It was a perfectly dreary day with Fall filling the air!!
After capturing our very own, real-life family photo, the camera battery died so there was that.. Thankfully there were plenty of phone cameras to take over.
Tyson kept exclaiming, 'carnival carnival' and loved checking out all the rides and lights. Needless to say there wasn't much sitting still for the boys, as you can see, with the exception of a quick milk break.
It's no secret I went for the food!! I stole a bite of the boys' corn dog (which never disappoints), shared some 'langosh' which had the most delicious garlic sauce and great flavor, then enjoyed a 'piggy grilled cheese sandwich' (bacon, cheese, onions and spinach on Texas toast) with garlic Parmesan fries. Yum.
The best part, we took our own Emmys-selfie. :) 



On Sunday, my MIL and SIL surprised us with a little 'sprinkle' at our regular, family Sunday dinner complete with a few of the most perfect girlie outfits, tiny shoes, and a cake.
It was unexpected, thoughtful and just what I needed to prepare and get excited. I don't feel like I've given myself a chance to really just enjoy and plan for this special little girl about to join our family, so I appreciated the chance to sit back, get spoiled and realize what a special time this is..!! It was a perfect occasion for an ugly-cry and that's exactly what I did.
It was a great weekend filled with family and fun!!

    1. Yes!! :) It's definitely a fun atmosphere, and seemed especially 'cozy' with the weather so Fall-ish on this particular evening.

  4. How fun!!! I love the emmy's selfie :) So cute! It looks like the boys had a fabulous time! I hope you were able to indulge in the fair food. I wished that I was pregnant during the fair so that I could indulge in the good, bad for you food but Mason decided to be born one week into the fair and we never made it!

    1. Right!! :) I didn't have a funnel cake or any sweets (which I now regret..) but the rest of what I did have covered an indulge for sure. :) I say special events are ok for that, every once in a while.
