Holiday Weekend

We had a great weekend! It's so nice to have Troy home and so we tried to do some fun family stuff this weekend.

We were able to resume our tradition of attending the Delaplane Strawberry Festival. It was super fun...if only a little hot.

We went with the Merchants and the Hobbs, and had so much fun.

There was...face painting:

hay rides:

sno cones and other assorted junk foods:

races (which Troy TOTALLY dominated...with the help? of both Emma and Josh (cause you know he has a "theory" about winning these things.):

a hay maze (and of course ticks, ticks, and more ticks. ick.):

and really, just good times for all:

I hope you had a good weekend!

Thanks for including us in all the fun. We had a great time; I only wish we had not had other obligations in the day.

Next time, I need to get Mia paired up with Troy for the field events. We had a disappointed daughter when she did not win at ANYTHING. Apparently, I need to develop a theory about all of this...

Does Katie look like Troy or what!? Glad you had a nice weekend!

Lara said...

I hate ticks more than words can say. Yuck!

I'd love to hear Troy's theory about winning carnival races, that's sure to be interesting!

What a fun Memorial Weekend!!! It's nice to have husbands back from long trips.

I've been doing it for 5 weeks now and have a lot more sympathy for you. It's the pits having to be the Mom and the Dad all rolled into one!!! I am so impressed with how well you keep yourself pulled together and still take amazing photos!!!

Okay, mine comes home for Sat. and Sun.
