I Left My Heart in San Francisco...

We had a Mommy & Daddy weekend away this past weekend...
we missed Avery, but had a great time just being grown-ups!
Napa Valley

Here we are heading back into the city {after visiting 6 or 7 wineries}
Can you tell we had a good time!?

San Francisco

{the ferry building}

full of all kinds of neat culinary shops & food
and a farmers market on Saturdays!
We had lunch at Ferry Plaza Seafood...can I just say YUM!
Shrimp quesadillas
Crab Melt
and of course...clam chowder!

{the gate to China Town}

Avery checking out her SF goodies...

a cable car shirt from the Ferry Building Farmers Market
and a kitty purse & embroidered shoes from China Town!
As Avery would say...cuuuuuute!

fall accessorizing...

...AVeRY style!
What all the fashionable toddlers on the runways
are wearing for the fall...

Parade fun...

My friend Leslie teaches 5th grade in Coppell.
So she invited us out to watch their homecoming parade...
Avery had such a fun time!!
Here she is with her friend Giffin (Griffin)
walking down to watch the parade
{I can't get over what a BIG girl she is getting to be!}

she loved collecting the candy...
even though she has NO idea what it is and is definitely not going to get to eat it!

dancing to the music...

Thanks Leslie & Griffin for inviting us to come!!!

more weekend fun...

Today we headed out to the Plano Balloon Festival...
I have to say we were pretty impressed!
There were a LOT of hot air balloons!
{trying to keep cool with a sno-cone...yum!}

{a rare picture with Mommy not behind the camera!}

{look at these wild hot air balloons...a dragon & penguin!}

and we made it home in time to catch the Cowboys Game...
so everyone was happy!

Busy weekend...

It's that time of year...

fall is just around the corner
and that means time for outdoor festivals!!

We will be hitting one almost every weekend for a while.
It started last weekend with a butterfly festival
and continued this weekend with TWO!
Today we headed out to Grapefest... It was pretty hot (and with no breeze and walking on black top it felt even hotter!) we popped into the vintage railroad museum to cool off. Avery thought the BEST part of the museum was the air vents on the floor!

On to a little dancing to a Salsa Band

and some serious play-doh concentration

She thought this Gecko fan was pretty funny!
All in all, a fun day!!
{more to come tomorrow when we check out another local festival!}

Have you tried painting outside with just water & a brush??
Avery LOVES it!!!

are little shoes SO cute!!??

more rain...

when it let up for just a little bit this morning, we got out there to burn a little energy off!
(yup, she's still in her PJ's!)

just enough time to play a little bit before the rain started up again!

this weekend has been rainy and wet...
there was a butterfly festival going on in Southlake hosted by the Kiwanis Club
luckily the rain let up just in time for us to head up there this afternoon!

We are looking forward to the Butterfly Flutterby in Grapevine in October, and the monarch butterfly release!!
{PS...How cute are those jeans? She looks like such a big kid!}
