Have I ever mentioned how in love I am with our town? We are so lucky with the beauty around us like this....
There is a university in our town that brings in tons of great shows, concerts, and activities for adults and kids. Our new house is now in a small town on the edge of the bigger town. It has quickly found a warm place in my heart. There are local coffee shops, yummy wine cafes, parks, peach orchards and just amazing stuff in our itty bitty town. I mean really come by, but don't blink because you will miss it!
Last weekend we had a celebration for the itty bitty small town fire department. Families gathered on the streets, of course next to the local mexican restaurant
to celebrate 100 years of the fire department, which Bradley thought was amazing. Ellie was a fan in her star headband, but then the fire trucks decided to have a siren competition and she thought that just wasn't cool.
husbands checked their phones for scores of the game, while still participating in family stuff (gotta love them!!)
then the tractors rolled out
and the fireman blew their horns
little boys were in awe
and little girls smiled...
OK, so it isn't really a smile, but she still looks adorable!!
and babies took it all in with pacies
and sweet toes
and daddies bonded with their boys, over big trucks, loud noises, and American heroes
and the flying candy was overflowing
I love finding out new and fun things about this little community. Like the town store that has live music on Saturday night and the most insane brownies I have ever tasted. Or our new Friday night tradition of dinner at the burger (and veggie sandwich-for me) place with homemade ice cream to wash it all down.
Each week we try a new place to eat, or a new running path. Making this little itty bitty town, our town too.
