Last Weekend

We started the morning with breakfast on the back deck. It was a little cool out, but overall a beautiful morning. Jeremy made us pancakes and bacon.

The kids were excited to go to the art festival - even though they didn't know what it was. This is the 30th year of the Art Festival in St. George. Nine years ago in 2000 it was held the week end that Jeremy and I were married. That was the first time I attended the art festival. It definitely was more art worthy to go when it was just the two of us, we got to see more of the art, this time around, with four kids in tow, we got to see a different side of the festival - it's not about the art, it's about the food and the face painting and the crafts for kids.
Becca and Lydia in the stroller - this didn't last for long, soon enough we were carrying both of them and the stroller was just something extra to drag along.
"This is just what I was dreaming about"

was what he said after he got his soda and corn dog. We let the kids choose what food item they wanted most - keep in mind that we had just had lunch before we went - I thought it would be cheaper to eat at home and let them get a snack type treat - but low an behold the treat they wanted most was soda and a corndog. Of course it was really just the soda that they waned. Both Tom and Charlie only ate a couple bites of their corn dog, but they drank the whole soda. Soda is a treat for them because we don't ever have it.
Charlie decorated the glasses and hat at the kids craft table.
Aunt Susan visited for the weekend and she met us at the festival after she had lunch with her friend. The kids love when aunt Susie comes to visit - and her trips are less often then they used to be. Every one wanted to ride home with Susan in her car after the festival and Becca was very sad that the boys got to go in Susan's car and she didn't.
