Weekend Update: Peanuts & Pirates

Happy Monday Friends! We had a pretty busy weekend accomplishing some nursery tasks, attending the local Peanut Festival and hitting up Meet the Pirates!

Josh's cousin Kasey (who, as I mentioned Friday, is an amazing singer/songwriter/guitarist) performed at the Peanut Festival in the little, teeny town of Fountain, NC. She did amazing, Sawyer ate more sugar than I thought possible, and we just about sweat to death.

who doesn't love being held and hand-fed Italian ice?
...and Cotton Candy
 and you can't go to the Peanut Festival without eating some boiled peanuts.

hot and sweaty and off to Meet the Pirates
Meet the Pirates is an annual event held at our football stadium (Dowdy-Ficklen) where they have fun stuff for kids, photo and autograph opportunities with the soccer, volleyball and football players along with the cheerleaders and Coach Ruffin McNeil. The lines for the autographs get crazy long so we usually just enjoy letting Sawyer play on the field and bounce around in the inflatable stuff. It felt so good to be back in the stadium and I can hardly wait until Aug. 30 for our first home game of the season!!

"driving" Daddy's truck while waiting for the gates to open, please note how tired Josh looks haha

cotton candy, Italian ice, popcorn, someone certainly didn't go hungry.
sign him up coach, he's fast.
our friend Chris Mitchell and his sister, bro-in-law and nieces came just as we were leaving, but too late for us to get a great pic
