Fun weekend

Just a little picture of the yummy stuff we had this weekend!
In looking at the photos I took over the last few days, I can't help but think how glad I am to be me. I love the people in my life. I had the best time ever at the Avacodo festival with my Pops, Megan and Evan. We were blessed with a beautiful day, great company, and even some good food. I tried avacado ice cream. It was nice. Strange that I would try anything new when it comes to food but I was trying to be in the spirit of the festival and be one with the avacado. In all we had at least a bite of avacado ice cream, fire roasted corn, holy guaca moly, carne asada taco with guac, & snow cone. It was fun loooking at all of the different artisans booths. I fell in love with these handmade winchimes. Pops and Megan each bought a new hat. Evan had fun watching all of the people. Let me tell you there were a lot of people. I took lots of photos. I was trying to be polite and asking before I photographed peoples art. The best picture of the day would have been of a avacado carved from wood, with dangling legs and arms, but the lady said no. Why it is that I asked???? I guess being polite doesn't always work to my advantage. Here are some photos from the day though.

So I'm a high maintenance photographer. There was a white towel on the wheel of this wagon. I asked the guy cooking to move it for me so I could take the picture. Hmmm, maybe that's a little over the top? Megan and Pops loved their corn. I nibbled off of Megan's. So perfect and salty!

Meg is looking for great "pics". She kept on saying "hey mom,that would be a good "pic". I gave her a throw away camera to capture the days event's It was fun to watch what she wanted to take pictures of. Future scrapper in training. Actually, she's got quite an eye. The dress in the middle was a great idea. It's a dress form jewelry holder. Many styles. A bit pricey for me to take home but ooh were they pretty. The avacado windchime was Megan's idea to photograph. Told you she has an eye!

Evan watched these puppets. This was such a beautiful tree. My favorite kind in the whole world! I wanted to plant them in my yard but we decided they were too messy when they loose the flowers.

Alyssa ending up staying the WHOLE night at the wild animal park & I am soooooo proud of her. She called just a few minutes after I had posted here the other night. I could tell she was nervous in her voice but I talked up the day and she was trying hard to be positive about the camping part of the day. I can't tell you how shocked I was to wake up Sunday morning realizing that she hadn't called to come home. She had a great time and now wants to venture out and actually stay the whole night at a friend's house. Luckily she was able to see Grampie before he had to drive back up to Victorville. Here's a shot of the kids with Grampie. love them all so so much!
Well, I could add pictures all night. I took the Brownie troop for a nature hike today. I'll post some "pics" tomorrow. Have a great night.
