Why I love My Small Town.




Since I have no new adoption news and the new Shared List doesn't come out until August something, I am sharing about "Why I Love My Small Town".

Our little town put together a Summer Celebration Downtown. It was so Americana and I loved every Southern bit of it. Here's why....



Free Watermelon ! Oh, if you could have seen how cute all the little kids were walking around with huge chunks of watermelon in their hands. And, check out the red wagon with balloons...so cute.



They let the kids screen print their own shirts ! How cool and crafty is that ?



You can hang out with your friends,

and wear your new screen printed T-Shirt.



Hula Hoops everywhere.

Small town band playing by the railroad.



Home-made ice cream.



Lots of smiles.

So Charming.

Love it !

I know what you mean. We had our little town festival last weekend. It always feels very American.

Hi there! You guys look like you had a really great time. I love watermelon in the summer. I think it is a tradition in the South, if you're going to have any kind of gathering you must have a watermelon!!

We had our annual town fair this past weekend as well. Luckily the weather was great, but we missed it due to Nathan's baseball team being in the district finals....but then again, there's nothin better than summer and baseball!! They won...woo hoo.. and are going to states this weekend.

Hope you get 'the call' soon!!soon!
