Friday night we had the opportunity to hang out with some of our friends. I just cannot say enough about having good friends. It doesn't matter what we do, where we are or what we wear...we just like being together.
Saturday morning began with trip to Phipps Farm to scout out the set up for the fall festival that my Dad is in charge of. All of the grand girls,Hubby,Bab, Pappy and myself all went out and had such a good time on the farm. We picked and ate pears and figs,saw the quail and chickens, the girls took home a quail egg and Pappy took home some regular eggs. We also got to see Phipps farmhouse that he built himself, it was so cool. While we were inside he serenaded us on his guitar, he is such a sweet man.
After the farm we had worked up an appetite- for Italian food so we went to the Italian Festival downtown. We had a blast there, everyone was there from our family except for Babs boys who were camping. We had some really good gelato, Italian ice, Italian soda and Hubs raved about his sausage and pepper sandwich. Yum! We got to see a gondola, the girls got balloon hats made just for them,played on the bounce house/slide, stomped grapes and did a little shopping at the different booths that were there.
For some reason my photos uploaded backwards-
|Hubby and Lo at the festival|
|Lo loved playing with and popping her hat.|
|Munchie stomping grapes. And, Gigi in the background in Lo's stroller...her shoes were rubbing a blister.|
|Silly! Munch got attacked by ants on the farm so Hubby gave her a lift. She immediately went from crying to laughing hysterically.|
|All of the grand girls showing off their quail eggs that they named and carried around like babies.|
|Bab trying to interest Lo in looking at the chickens...I think she was more interested in her Daddy.|
|My boy scout, always prepared! The grand girls wanted to eat the pears that they picked but wanted them peeled so it was Hubby and his pocket knife to the rescue.|
|Lo enjoyed gnawing on a pear too!|
