a county fair, carnival, boating, food and fireworks.  that pretty much sums up our weekend. a completely vanilla summer weekend.  ;o)
even if i had created a bucket list for this summer (which i usually do) i’m not even sure all of these things would have made it.  i mean, i can’t remember the last time i actually went to a county fair or a carnival! truth is doing them meant not only more firsts for carson but also a fun change of pace from most of our summer weekends.
here’s the rundown:
friday night we cruised back to our hometown after work for the county fair.  we had snow cones and watched my brother demolish his $4k hobby car.  we were able to see lots of family, baby farm animals and tractors.  cody was excited, carson was ambivalentwhat more could a grown man ask for?!  hehe.

i woke up the next day for an early morning hair appointment with my sister in law then we headed back north for an afternoon of boating.  the weather has been perfect for the water so getting out on the weekends has been priority.  we invited my mom along and some of our close friends and made an afternoon of it.  once we had sufficiently freckled we called it quits.   

that evening cody and i ventured out to the local summerfest celebration.  just the two of us.  it’s been months since we’ve been able to do that.  we walked the carnival, ate food truck fare and even rode the ferris wheel.  according to cody you haven’t lived until you‘ve had fried cheese curds with ketchup.  according to cody you also haven’t lived until you’ve nearly died on a rickety, carny ferris wheel.  afterward we met up with adam and liz for drinks and some music.  it was so. much. fun.  i just love those two! 

sunday we lounged.  NOT!  that’s what i wanted to do.  no, no, no.  but, we did have donuts!  more on sunday’s activities next week.  
our weekend ended with a fireworks show.  the best seat in the house is the one on our roof.  carson slept through it all.  
happy summer!
