This weekend was jammed packed full of fun, so much to do and so little time. Friday morning Monkey and I went into town so I could snap a few pics of go carts made out of wine barrels. The big race was happening Saturday and the winner won tickets to our area's annual Wine and Balloon Festival.
An area news station was doing a promo piece so we got to see a mock run. Aren't the barrels neat? The 911 cart had a siren and light bar lit up and the tootsie roll cart had the tootsie roll song blasting with its very own dancers. There was also a cowgirl riding her horse barrel. Fun fun fun, such creative people!
I went to the Music mans gig at a local winery and took photos of some another local bands, one who will be opening up for Easton Corbin and Scotty McCreery at this wine festival in a few weeks. This year I'll be attending as a fan and a photographer and I am super excited about that!
Saturday we drove up to my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday. My mama threw him a huge party, a family reunion of sorts with food from our favorite Italian market and live music. I danced my booty off until my feet and back said no more.
We spend Sunday resting, eating left over lasagna and getting ready for another work week. The weather is warm and the balloons are flying by the dozens every morning for us to enjoy until the festival, afterwards they'll go back to flying on weekend only.
I am tired, pooped, done... It was a great weekend and I'm thankful for all we did and all saw.
Jack had me up every hour last night, I hope his tummy feels better fast and I'm already looking forward to tonight and catching up on some Z's.

Great pics! We spent our weekend watching our oldest kid graduate from college. Where did the years go? Three generations of our family ate, drank and laughed our way through the festivities. We are so lucky.ReplyDelete
