Fun at the fair...

Oh how I wish every weekend could be a three day weekend!!!! It's just enough time to have fun, be productive, and relax too.

We spent a lot of time this weekend at Matthews Alive.
It's our towns annual Labor Day festival.

The boys look forward to it every year!! They LOVE the rides---who doesn't!?!?

We spent Friday evening taking in all the festivities.

It was Sophie's first time riding a carousal.
She LOVED it!!! She pitched a little fit when it was time to get off!!!

Hudson and I got to ride on the carousal too!

A trip to the fair is not complete with out a few treats...

how about some soft served ice cream...

and a snow cone.

Saturday morning we headed back to the festival, but this time it was to participate in the parade.

Our adoption agency sponsors a float each year and they asked our family if we would like to ride on it.

We were so excited to be a part of the parade!
The boys had a blast passing out candy and waving to all the spectators.

It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time!

how cool you got to be on a float.
Looks like a great time.
We went to Bentonville to visit my parents, I'll post about it one of these days.
Have a great week, and at least its a short one.

How fun!! Did you make those adorable shirts the children are wearing?? It was a nice weekend... except for the being sick part around here. We are mostly better, though. Have a beautiful week, friend! Blessings!!!

What a PRECIOUS family! Matthews Alive (didn't it use to be called Stumptown?) is a great little festival. My niece took her children and sent me pics! Great little community!
