Last weekend’s festivities

Last weekend, we had a lot going on.  Only fun things though, so that’s okay.  I’ll take a busy, fun weekend anytime!

Friday night we went to Oktoberfest in a neighboring city and met up with some friends there.  We ate good, but unhealthy (very, very unhealthy) food, drank beer, and had a great time people-watching.  Festivals are the best for people watching!  We did not, however, spot any fanny packs.  Disappointing.  We did see a few mullets, though, which just about make up for the fanny packs, hehe.

We also played a few festival games….

And, in the ball toss game, I WON…
Harrison, the goldfish!!!

Ok, ok.  I technically didn’t win him.  K may have had to pay off the scary lady with no teeth with a few extra tickets for Harrison but it was totally worth it.  He was living in a bucket with 100s of other fish.  That’s no life for a fish.  Now look how happy he is…


On Saturday, we went to the Plano Balloon Fest.  It.Was.Awesome.  Hot air balloons everywhere.  And, people everywhere.  There were 200,000 people at this event.  To put that into perspective…that’s the population of the city we’re from (Toledo, Ohio).  Crazy!  And, we were sitting up on a hill, so we could see all the people.  These pictures do not do it justice.  Or the balloons, for that matter.  After dark, the balloons lit up to music and there was a fireworks show (eep, one of my favorite things ever).  It was a good day.









Sunday we did nothing.


On Monday, we went to a Ranger’s game with friends and had a fantastic time.  (Monday is technically not the weekend, but since we didn’t do anything on Sunday I decided to lump Monday into this post).  It’s weird to go to a baseball game at the end of September while it’s 95 degrees.  But, I’ll take it over Ohio’s end of September weather any day.  The game was close and the Rangers tied it in the last inning, 4-4.  At their last at bat, bases loaded, a ground ball to center field is hit, sending a run in.  Rangers win!!  It was very exciting!  Fans crack me up.  Everyone was hugging each other.  Some crazy lady, who I didn’t know, hugged me.  (She later pinched k’s butt while we were leaving, haha).  But, it just shows how much we love our sports teams!



So, there you have it, {d&k}s weekend.  How was yours?

We have fun things planned for this weekend too.  Check back soon for details!


Enjoy your day,
