Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! It has been a beautiful Labor Day weekend here in Kansas. Not too hot, not too cold, bright sunny skies.... perfect weather for a fair or festival! Yesterday Hubby and I hopped over the State Line to Independence MO, they have a big festival every year called Santa-Cali-Gon Days which is always lots of fun. Huge crowds, thousands of people attending on this beautiful day, just look at that one little feather white cloud up there!

Can't go to a festival with out an artery clogging treat! This year I chose the fresh made curly potato chips and they were tasty :)

We walked through many of the arts and crafts tents, I love to see what everyone is making and found a few goodies for Christmas gifts. All the booths were crowded and people were buying which was great to see. Now this booth... I have to tell you, you couldn't help but stop. Life like new born baby dolls, everybody wanted to hold one! Not only do they look real, they felt and posed like a real baby. This vendor was nice enough to allow me to take hubbys picture with one. Awwww, I'd say he still has the touch!

We left baby behind and worked our way back to the car. On the way we passed the Truman home, also known as the Summer White House, this is the home of Harry and Bess Truman. Bess bequeathed the home to the National Park Service and you can purchase tickets to tour their home in small groups. We took the tour several years ago with friends and found it well worth the small admission price.

One last stop on the drive home. I scream, you scream, Hubby wanted Ice cream!

And now I am going to head upstairs for a little sewing time. UPS made a delivery here on Friday, the full line of Toy Box Two fat quarters. So excited, they will look darling on my Annie blocks don't you think?
