Crossing Festival

This weekend the kids, my Mom and I attended the Crossing Festival in Glendale, Kentucky. If you have ever been to Glendale and know the size of the area you would truly be amazed at how many people they are able to fit in this tiny city. As we walked over the train tracks, we stopped our steps and just laughed at the crows and crowds of people that had come out.

When we left home early that morning, we had the intentions of it being a pretty and warm day. Boy, were we wrong. By the time we arrived in Glendale, it was freezing due to the wind and looked almost as if it was going to rain. Thankfully, I had enough items to bundle up the kiddos but purchased Charli a hat just to help her stay warm.

We stopped in a town north of us to have breakfast at cracker barrel. If you know me, I love good country cooking and cracker barrel never fails me. But sadly, my past two experiences there have not been so pleasant. The first time my waiter was terribly rude to the kids and I. He ended up walking out after taking our order. This time I was just not a ran of their apple strusel french toast like I was last year. You win some and loose some though, right?

We were able to find so many goodies while we made our way through the crowds. My Mom purchased a ring, necklace and a watch that is made out of old type writer keys. I ordered Bryar a wooden puzzle that has his name and dinosaurs for a Christmas present. Bryar also got some great toddler bibs and Charli hairbows that were great prices!

 Charli and Bryar were such great little troopers during this event. We all may have snuggled a whole lot and pushed Charli in the stroller to get around people quicker but they were all around great. I did get asked three times that day if Bryar was a girl... really? That is never cool, especially since he had on dinosaur shoes.
 We did get to go for lunch at one of my favorite resturants called The Whistle Stop. We honestly had to wait in a line for 45 minutes, while a lady stood at the door with it locked. They were super serious about letting people in and out that day to keep crowd control down. Even though the lady was elderly, she was super intimidating to most.

But I thought I was going to sadly loose my ever loving mind when our waitress told us that they were out of banana pie. Ah! The world could have ended in that very moment and I would not have known. Bless my food loving heart, that pie is my favorite and the last two times we have made the trip there they have been out. But thankfully, their open faced roast beef made up for it.
 Hopefully, next year it will be prettier but for this year it was the perfect trip and day to spend with Nana!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
