After a tenderloin sandwich for me and Pepos street tacos for Kim we walked around checking out the many interesting vendors. Also was a small children carnival. The music tent was alive with talent and the crowd was fairly large for mid day.

We then took in our usual funnel cake topped with strawberries & whip cream. then off to home we went.  Looking forward to the coming of South Fall Festival around the 22nd. This festival normally happens in the first of September,however due to the heavy rain fall over the several day period this annual event takes place, it was postponed and rescheduled to October. 

We hope your weekend is just as special and eventful where ever you are,that you enjoying as well.

Fall has arrived

The air after last nights rain has a crisp clean smell. the leaves have yet to change,but sure to begin soon. time to prepare the fire pit so as to entertain roasting of hotdogs and smores in the coming evenings. I hear many state that they like fall season. I can relate with that as so do I except I am sadden the lose of my warmer days. Plus deplore the thought of snow and ice sure to come  in the near future. Missouri most certain has four seasons. If you don’t like the weather,wait 10 minutes as it will change.
