I cannot believe it’s Monday, already! Where did the weekend go? My husband and I pride ourselves on not having a social life and so when we spend the entire weekend busy, it really throws us for a loop. I know it must sound really pathetic but we enjoy doing absolutely nothing or just doing things together! Our children, however, are completely different and if they aren’t attached to the hips of their friends the entire weekend it’s not a weekend.
This weekend was Broomfield’s annual community festival called Broomfield Days. Lucky for us, all the activities take place at the park just a short walk from our house. Last year, I didn’t walk down and look around because we had just moved and I was busy still settling in. This year I decided to take Laith down to walk with his school in the parade. Noor was running a 3 mile run for her high school and she left early in the morning. Sahare accompanied her friend to the festival.
I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great community event and it was fun to bump into people you knew. There were rides and activities for the kids, for a fee of course, and food stalls and businesses with booths selling their wares. Laith and I had a great time. We met some of his friends, he walked with his school in the parade, he did fun activities at various booths, ate funnel cake because no carnival or festival is complete without funnel cakes!
They had a little exhibition with antique and exotic cars and I saw my favourite:
All in all it was a fun and busy weekend but I sure am tired and it’s only Monday! How was your weekend? Did you all do something fun or cook something delicious?
Have a great week!
