Friday Flower Fix & Weekend

Ok, before I get into todays (late) post...let me sit down and take a breath for a minute....................

I have been ripping and running ALL day today. I took Jayla to school this morning, came home, laid back down for about 45 minutes, then I was up and out again. Today, the kindergarten classes at Jayla's school went on a fieldtrip to the North Georgia State Fair. So, me along with about 5 other moms from our class tagged along. I've never been to the fair before and had been wanting to go. My friend, Stacey, has been several times and warned me that it might be pretty boring and stinky, lol. Well, let's put it this way, I didn't have "the time of my life", but it was fun. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a good time. None of the rides were running, as the time of day that we went is mainly for school/daycare field trips.

After waiting in line for quite a while, it was finally our turn to take a "hayride" (minus the hay) to the first attraction. The first attraction was the "stinky" part of the trip. There were several animals for the kids to look at. There were turkeys, goats, a zebra, donkey's, a giant yellow snake, ostrichs, parrotts, minature horses...OH MY!!! :-)

After that the kids had their picture made with a clown, they toured the crafts displays, then took a picture in front of a big ole green tractor, (remember, I'm the class photographer? :-D). After the photo stops, we headed into the second stinky part of the tour. This time, we saw horses, cows, ducks, emus (not sure I spelled that right), and chickens (NOTE: chickens look a LOT better when they are plucked, fried, placed between a warm hamburger bun with a slice of pickle and placed in a white bag with Chick Fil A written on it...but that's just me.) Oh, the kids also got to feed some goats...YUCK!!! Can you say "Pass the Purell hand sanitizer?!?!) Then it was on to the highlight of the entire field trip.....Mayfield icecream sandwiches and apple juice :-D.

Welp, that was about it for the field trip. The kids were exhausted and getting a little hot and hungry. So,we headed back to the entrance and onto the bus they went. After dropping off one of the moms back at the school, I was off to run my errands. Then back to the school to pick Jayla up. What a day!!

So, what have you guys got planned for the weekend? You're not gonna believe it...we've got soccer...hee hee. Jayla has a 9am game, AGAIN. Then the Stingrays have their team pictures followed by their game at noon. Other than that, I think that's all we've got going on this weekend. Well, I thank you all for your's your flower fix for the day.

Have a beautiful weekend and I'll be talkin' to ya soon!! Toodles!

AH! Did you have to mention Chick-fil-A?? I've been without for almost SIX MONTHS! Seriously...6 months w/no C-F-A leads to withdrawal{add to that no sweet tea, it's just torture}.

Anyways, thanks for the comment. I've seen you around...BEM, Jude, etc. We have similar taste in friends.

Hi Dawn! You sound so busy, but FUN busy. Drama had a soccer game in Seattle soccer weather (yes, rain). They won at the last minute, and I'm glad, because I didn't want to sit out in the elements for a tie-breaker. :)

Re: your question on minced garlic on SusieQ's blog...
I don't think you'd have to throw it out. I buy little minced squares of frozen garlic at my local grocery store. They are each one clove, and I pop them out as i need them for sautee-ing or what-have-u.
