a lovely weekend


Let me start off by telling you that this little town that we currently live in has a monument... to a boll weevil! Little fun fact- it is the only city to have a monument to an insect.  Well, this weekend we had a big event named the boll weevil festival. There is not much to do in this town so this was kind of a big deal! We loaded up Shakespeare in the truck and headed to the festivities. The weather was absolutely perfect outside so it was a good day for all that was in store. So what did these festivities include? Pony rides (see picture above) , children in costumes, vendors, a man singing on stage to a CD, some food vendors and hot dogs in crock pots. We did find a couple of good vendors.. and lovely persimmons. So overall I would say it was a great Alabamian experience. Later that night we headed out for Indian BBQ and the food was DELICIOUS.  They were also playing old Bollywood videos and let me tell you... they were probably the highlight of my day. The husband and I decided we should get some copies to play at our next get together. I think they would be quite the hit ;) who doesn't want to see people dancing and singing in colorful clothing.  Sunday was also a beautiful day so we headed to the lake. We love spending days on the lake and wanted to let Shakespeare swim before it gets too cold. After the lake we headed home for a relaxing Sunday evening.. where 


I came across this video... it made me quite happy!






  Hope you all had a great weekend!
