Busy Busy Busy!

Things have been really busy here lately.  We bought another house and are quickly trying to fix it up before we move in.  It's a house with great potential in a great neighborhood and I think it will be beautiful when it's done.  It's only 1 mile from our current house.  We're also taking time to enjoy summer -friends, cook-outs, the awesome weather, and longer days.  To quote the great Ferris Bueller "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Last night, I think we had the most fun as a family of 4 that we've ever had.  We traveled about 40 miles southwest of Lexington to Danville, which is a cute little town.  We parked downtown and experienced Brass and the Bayou.  They were having a New Orleans themed party and so much fun!!!  We immediately got some amazing food -I got the Jambalaya and Brian got Crawfish Etouffee and Hudson wanted a hotdog.  Our food was out of this world!  We sat and ate and listened to some great jazz music and Hudson danced a little.  Then we got gelato and snow cones.  It was such a fun little atmosphere.

Here's a video of our crazy little boy, or maybe Elaine from Seinfeld.   He did not learn these dance moves from me.  Sadly, he's probably not going to win any dance contests anytime soon.  Such a little boy.

Then, we packed up and headed about 10 minutes south of the town to the airport for the Great American Balloon Race.  We watched 20 hot air balloons take off and it was amazing!
Such a cool sight!
At first, we thought we were going to be late, so we quickly parked at a church, but found out there was a delay and packed back up and headed to the airport.  Thanks for the grimace, Hudson.
My favorite balloon was the Red, White, and Blue one.
The multicolored one in the middle was Hudson's favorite.  There was were old cars and an airplane to check out.
I had high hopes to get a cool picture with the boys and balloons in it -oh, well.
Take #2.


We ate some yummy kettle corn.
I wanted a cool shot with me and the boys with the balloons in the background, but Beckett crawled off and Hudson wouldn't look at the camera, and you can barely see the balloons.

Such an amazing sight seeing them plastered all over the sky
There was also a lot of fun for the kids - a slide and a couple of bounce houses.
The boys were up late!!!   Beckett was up until after 9 and Hudson was up until we got home and got him ready for bed a little after 10.
Such an amazing night!  I highly recommend going to see a balloon race if you get the chance.

  1. How fun! I have never seen a football hot air balloon before. Pretty neat. And the food sounds amazing. Congratulations on your new house.
