Matt and I are foodies, we love food (can't you tell), and part of this love affair is attending fun festivals that have amazing food for us to 'taste'. So, this past weekend, we celebrated the first week of school by attending the Festival of Nations, which is always a good time (Especially for the YUMMY food)! YAY. The girls had so so much fun, hearing the music, watching different performers, AND enjoying whatever yummy food they could sucker us into getting them! :) SURE, they don't necessairly NEED a stroller anymore, but in crowds, it's much easier to keep them contained AND safer to ensure they don't wander off...a.nd quite honestly it's a LONG LONG way for them to walk.

....for me, that is, was today, and since it was my last day off, Matt took the day off too! It was such a great day! We decided that we'd do it up and took the girls to the zoo for the day, which was awesome! However, apparently everyone else decided that today was a great zoo day too! It's so strange going places with the girls now, while they aren't necessairly ready to give up their stroller, they still aren't ready to walk everywhere, so we're learning how to juggle a combination of walking and 'riding'. I must say it makes me nervous, mainly because sometimes we still don't listen too well and then we end up running after them or constantly yelling at them to slow down or come back (which is no fun, at all)...and it's hard to just 'leave' your stroller places and run after them. But, we did well today, I think!
Ted Drewes was quite a hit, and a perfect way to end such a perfect day! School with kids starts on Monday....wow, did summer go fast!
Hope all is well for you and yours!
