Artapalooza is always so much fun. Mark was out of town pretty much from mid September until the beginning of December so I had to try to stay busy. My good friend and her family joined with me so they could "help" me with my kids. Honestly in public I need all the help I can get. So Artapalooza is when they shut down part of the downtown area and just have tons of crafts to do, look at and buy. It is so much fun.

The kids got sooo much candy, and yet it still wasn't as much as they got the year before! It was such a bright ,windy day, it was actually kind of chilly. Which seems weird for Labor Day it's usually super hot and muggy.
Ok so on Labor Day when I lived in Davenport I almost always went to the Labor Day Parade, for awhile my mom organized it my Step Dad is always a part of it, you know I come from a Labor Driven family so it's important to them. This year Mark and I took the kids and on our walk there we say this train...Ok it is just one of those things that I think are beautiful. Something about trains is very calming for me. I love hearing them and watching them. It's weird I know but I am seriously fascinated by them.

Is this not the funniest thing you have ever seen! Really I think I peed my pants I was laughing so hard when he rolled up! It's never boring when everyone gets together I will tell you that!
My cousin brought her jeep and when the batteries ran out they both tried to fix it! That was so funny to listen to their conversation about how they were going to get it to work again.

Seriously I don't think there is anything better than having no technology and a bunch of dirt, it would be better if I could shower at camp. So we love just going and chilling out at "camp" it's just good old fashion family fun. I have to be honest my family is pretty fun to be around I lucked out for sure. Grandma always gets big hugs from everyone the minute we see her.
