Strawberry Fesitval and Walks

Busy work weeks lately have made fun weekends oh so precious. Weekends are great, but they fly by and there is never enough time to get in everything I want to do. However, this past weekend we were able to put away to the “to-do” list and just relax and enjoy the early summer.

On Saturday, we attended a local strawberry festival. Elin loved running around checking out all the happenings. She got to see firetrucks and ambulances up close for the first time and even get in them and roam around. The highlight was getting her very own fireman’s hat that she wore the entire time we were there. It was super cute but lightweight and a little too big for her so the wind kept blowing it off her head and we had to constantly chase it down.

She also was enthralled with the miniature planes they had on show and were flying. Her favorite was this huge one. I think she was plotting ways to get close enough to check out the doll they had in there.

No trip to a strawberry festival would be complete without trying the strawberry shortcake! She was not a fan. She took one bite of the strawberries and cake and decided she had enough and that she would walk around and dance while the others around her were entertained by her. She can be quite the ham.

Later that evening she went to out to eat with me, her Nanny, and a family friend.

Sunday she woke up all smiles and couldn’t get enough of playing peek-a-boo with her blankets and a plethora of stuffed animals.


The highlight of my Sunday was taking an extra long walk with Elin and the dogs. It’s amazing to me that just a few years ago the chihuahuas would run out in front of us practically pulling us along because they had so much energy. Sadly, they are pretty slow and can’t keep up as much so they took turns and sometimes simultaneously rode in Elin’s car with her. She loved having the company and petting them. I think they looked so cute all sitting in the car together.
