Weekend Update - Busy Busy Busy

Some weekends, you need a weekend after your weekend because it was so busy.  Last weekend was one of them.  I'll include photos later, but I've been horrible about backing up my pictures.  For me, that means I've left my pictures on my camera for more than a week (the horror!).  On Saturday, Little Miss and I went to Truck Day at our local library.  They had a county bus, a cement mixer, police vehicles, a fire truck, cranes and other trucks I could not identify.  In the past, there have been Army vehicles, too, but nothing this year.  There was also a donut truck there, and we had the most delicious mini donuts.  I dream about them still.

After, I left her in the care of Husband so he could handle swimming class, lunch and a nap.  There was a playdate in there, but it was postponed.

Meanwhile, a friend picked me up and we went to the Gaithersburg Book Festival.  It was a lot of fun despite the overcast weather.  I was proud that I only bought two books - both of which I look forward to reading.  Then, we went to the mall to browse around before heading to a mutual friend's housewarming party. 

On Sunday, I woke up with Little Miss again.  We did brunch and left the apartment to tour the Taste of Arlington.  We met Brother-in-Law, his new fiance, his father and Nephew.  We all had a lot of fun together, and the kids were awesome.  I think the highlights were Little Miss got free chocolate-covered strawberries despite the fact that I was trying to rid myself of taste tickets.  I enjoyed paella, roasted suckling pig and risotto balls.  Little Miss enjoyed frozen yogurt, ice cream and Italian Ice.  She actually also ate pizza and went home to eat a decent dinner whereas I was too full for dinner.  I enjoyed the Buffalo Pork Belly Sliders, too, but they were a little too spicy for me.  It's one of my favorite local events.
