If you were around for my 40x40 list (a list of things I wanted to accomplish by the time I was 40) you may remember that one of those items was to eat at the longest breakfast table in the Cereal Festival in Battle Creek, MI. Obviously, the festival only happens once a year so it just didn't work out until this summer. It was such a fun time! We got up on Saturday morning and loaded up to make the drive. We got there and found the cereal station - because we didn't get there until just before the end there were only a few options for cereal so we grabbed two bowls, got some milk and found a seat at one of the tables.
After the festival we headed to my Mother-In-Laws home for a small family reunion. I took a lot of photos but I just picked out a few to share. We spend the entire afternoon outside (they live on a lake and have a beautifully shaded yard so between the shade and the breeze off the water - it was a fabulous day)
Do you know how you know your kids played hard? When they don't wake up when you get home. Wow. I got Nate out of the truck, carried him inside, changed only his shorts out for PJ shorts (left his tank top on him) and laid him bed. He never once woke up - he just whined a little in his sleep, then when I laid him down, he rolled over and was out. I think he was tuckered out :-)
We do plan on trying to get back to the cereal festival in future years - it's such a fun experience!
