Weekend of Travel

Our weekend was supposed to consist of both Canton Trade Days AND the Texas State Fair. The weather, however, changed our plans. We did make the Canton Trade Days - made it to Canton Friday night to stay with our friends Greg and Nan. We stayed with them in their new cabin and woke up to attempt Trade Days. It. Was. HUGE. I keep saying it's like Disney World - you simply cannot see it all in one day! We found several things we would have liked to have brought home with us, but - in the end - the only purchases we made were that of food. You know the kind... greasy, fried, and all-together unhealthy yet uber tasty! We spent Saturday in Canton. Nan and I swatted at mosquitos on the back porch while the boys napped. We enjoyed the rain as it rolled in... and stayed. After a quick BBQ dinner, we headed to Plano to stay with Bill's sister and family. Our plans included going to the State Fair Sunday morning, but the very cool, rainy weather kept us indoors. I don't think the kids minded at all - they really enjoyed some play time in their pj's all morning long. It was a good time. Finally, after a quick trip to Kohl's, we headed home. It was fast and furious, but it was a good weekend... and good practice for the kids in having to be in the car for long, long periods of time! (More on THAT later!)

Just lovin' on my blue-eyed baby boy.
FUNNEL CAKE!!! *Thank goodness we got on in Canton since we were jipped on the tasty fried foods of the Texas State Fair!
Kid-sized corn dogs! Mmmmm...
And, of course, Dippin' Dots.
