A Nice Evening Out

Saturday afternoon, I called my parents to see if they wanted to go to the Peach Festival later. Mom told me that Dad was sleeping, so they'd let me know. A couple hours later, Dad called, and asked if I still wanted to go. It ended up just being the two of us, since Mom just didn't feel like wandering around. So Dad picked me up and off we went!

Dad dropped me off so he could find a parking spot. The place was CRAZY!!! The weather was perfect, not too hot, not freezing, and no rain in sight! So of course, everyone was there! I found Dad about 15 minutes later, and we walked around trying to figure out what to eat. I ended up getting a shaved steak sandwich, pretty much like a Philly cheesesteak. It was very good! Dad got his usual bratwurst from the German tent. He likes to talk to the owners in German while waiting! Showoff!! Actually, I think it's pretty cool! :) After we ate, we decided we needed something more, so we picked fried dough. By the time we finished eating it, both of us looked like we had been snowed on!! It was very delicious, though! After that, I went to the Mexican tent and bought 2 bobblehead turtles! They posted above! So, now I have 8 turtles! Whoo hoo!

Dad and I wandered around a bit more, just watching people and seeing what was around. We got to a section with mostly rides and games, and it was so busy with teenyboppers, that we turned around and went back the other way! Dad chatted with me about some things, and I was just having a really nice time. It's not too often that I do things alone with Dad, so the time spent with him was wonderful! We decided to get funnel cake, coated almonds, and kettle corn, and made our way back to the van. It's a good thing I can walk down hills well! He dropped me off at home, and I just rested for the remainder of the night! It was a lot of fun hanging out with Dad!! :)
