I didn’t realize it last year either, but the strawberry festival in Plant City is a big thing. Check out the website for more information. There are tons of big music artists and events. This runs until next Sunday, so I’m hoping we can go before then.
This weekend was a busy one in Tampa, with lots of things going on. This past Saturday, the Strawberry Festival kicked off. I really want to go and get some fresh strawberry shortcake, its soooooo good! They also sell flats of fresh strawberries for a good price as well. I was going to go down to Plant city and get some yesterday afternoon, but I was pooped and ended up taking a nap. (I must be getting old, I’ve been taking naps almost every weekend lately). It rained most of Saturday evening and night, so we stayed in. Amanda brought the kids over that afternoon (on Sat) and the kids played togther and we (the adults) watched Star Trek Voyager until about 8 or 8:30.
After the kids went to bed Liz and I watched some of the episodes of Monk from Season 5 that we had missed since dropping cable. We sitll have 3 more episodes to go and we’ll be caught up. BSG was new last night, but I have to wait to watch it until it shows up in the newsgroups.
I just couldn’t resist. This is Chris and Mary at the Fall Festival last night. Love the costumes!
Last night we took the kids to the Fall Festival. I couldn’t leave work until 5, so I got home and Liz and the kids were just leaving. Jason came over and went with them as well. I ran in the house and got changed and ate something, then got in my car and met them at the festival. Sarah and Abby rode the ponies again like last year and they played games and got candy. Michael had this really cute lion costume on and Liz painted his nose black with whiskers on his cheeks, he was SOOOO Cute! I’ll try to get Liz to offload the pictures from the camera and get them uploaded to the website soon. I spent most of the night holding a fussy tired Michael, and bashful Abby, but I think they all still had fun.
