10.10.10

We hit the big festival Saturday morning. Talk about crowded!! We left around 11:30am because you could hardly walk due to the masses of people. I would have taken a few pictures of the food, but we ate as we walked, which wasn't easy but we managed because we were much more interested in eating than taking pictures.

and another (I like the previous picture more than this one, but I cut off Wesley's chin because I couldn't see the screen because the sun was so bright. oops)  
a shot of the crowd around 11:00am on Saturday  
check out the crowd!
another crowd picture (these pictures really don't show the sheer number of people crowded onto a small street)

we had to stop and see the fire trucks as we headed to the car

my big purchase from the festival - for the baby sister :)

Wes headed to Doda and Pawpaw's house, and Damon and I went down to the Bengals-Buccaneers game today. Sadly the Bengals lost, but I enjoyed spending time with Damon. See...always looking for the bright side. The other bright side was that we only sat in the sun for about 15 minutes of the game, which matters a lot when you're wearing a black shirt and it is 88 degrees outside!!

Our seats are right next to the sweetest Grandma you've ever seen. Everyone around actually calls her Grandma (she's had season tickets for YEARS). She brings her grandsons to the games with her, and she asked me to pray for her grandson who is serving in Afghanistan. So please say a prayer with me that he returns to the United State safely and also soon. Just listening to her you could tell how much his family cares about him and misses him. It is times like that I remember how difficult it must be for families when one member is in harm's way overseas and how much I appreciate those who willingly give their lives and their time to keep us safe.

Here's a prayer card she gave me.

I'll post more about the game soon. I have to go through the pictures, but not tonight - I'm headed to bed!
