Kids Fest 2015

Jefferson City had a Kids Festival today, lots of games, face painting, candy and even a petting zoo. My husband and I were lucky enough to spend time with our grandson. My sister and brother in law were there with their twin grand kids too.

Family vacation

My family decided to do a trip to Gulf Shores, AL Well, all but my daughter and grandson but everyone else went and we had such a wonderful time. We celebrated my sister's 50th birthday, my parents upcoming 55th wedding anniversary and my son's recent engagement to a great gal! The weather was wonderful and our week went way too fast. However, my husband and I were ready to return home to our dogs. I hope to go back in another 5 years and this time take my grandson as well.

We stayed at the Phoenix West

We spent a lot of time in the Lazy River.

We went deep sea fishing one day. 
This guy was waiting for fish to be cleaned.

And this creature! Someone put one of these in the lazy river. It tried to climb up my leg twice. They are called toe biters and you can tell by the ruler it is on, it is not small. My mom laughed as I screamed as it came after me again. Beware of these nasty bugs!

Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co

My husband and I traveled down to Mansfield, Missouri to Baker Creeks' Spring Planting Festival. It started at 10 this morning and we got there shortly after. They had peach trees for less than $20. Some as low as $13.99. Blackberry bushes for less then $7 and all kinds of vegetable plants for $2. I found some feed sack fabric for $5 a yard. It was a really neat place to visit but it was packed! Like crazy packed, hard to get around so we left about noon.

This little piggy escaped their owner but was soon caught
