We had a great time at the World’s Largest Brat Fest today!
It was a great end to a nice long weekend. We started the morning out with breakfast and sitting out on the deck watching the birds and the ducks. We headed out early in the interest of getting home for nap time. Then we also had the perk of parking close! Brat Fest is never terribly crowded on Monday though. It was a nice day to ride a few rides and eat a few brats.
We went on the choo-choo train and the Berry Go-Round, each twice. There were a good number of kiddie rides, but there were some we couldn’t go on with her and she’s not quite big enough to go by herself. It didn’t seem to bother her though. She liked driving the train and turning the berry. Before we left Dada joined Mama and Allie in the Berry!
The highlight of the outing for everyone though may have been the ice cream. Its always the highlight if its from the Chocolate Shop! Allie isn’t usually a fan of ice cream. She doesn’t like it so cold. But with the heat melting the ice cream maybe it didn’t seem as cold or something because she couldn’t get enough of it. We let her eat so bad this weekend!
It got warmer as the day went on and we were all ready for a nap by the time we got back in the car. Allie slept three hours and I had to wake her up so she wouldn’t stay up too late tonight. I would have liked to take a nap but I went for a hot run instead!
It was fun but its definitely time to get back to work. Allie stayed up late every night this weekend and we’ve paid for it as Allie’s gotten more terrible two ‘tude. But she’s finally asleep and tomorrow it will be back to the old grind. It was nice to have a long weekend without traveling or other big obligations. And now a short week coming up! Bring on summer!
