Travel-less Adventures

You ever have those weekends that are full of unexpected adventures, good times and great finds where you don’t even leave town?

We had one of those.

Saturday we went to an Italian Festival being held nearby.

We saw the most massive rice crispy treats

They are almost the size of her head!

Children stomping grapes to make into wine

young ones helping old ones

And far too many men in far too many tights twirling and throwing flags

straight from Italy. Seriously, couldn't speak English

Sunday we attended a farmer’s market and art bazaar where I met Lexis of Lexisworks and Shay picked up an adorable necklace from BarberryandLace.

Later that afternoon, after many chores had been done, laundry cleaned and the house not looking like a *total* wreck we decided we needed an adventure.  We grabbed our cameras, picked a direction (right vs. left) and found ourselves in an industrial part of town with graffiti skulls looking to start a fight.

I was trying to protect my roomie but first had to put my game face on

Preparing for Battle

We battled fiercely

On guard!

But in the end, his comrade came out of nowhere and took me out.

A kick to the face left me in disgrace

Sadly, Shay then had to run for her life from the monstrous green man (too many veggies in his childhood perhaps?  Nah.  Couldn’t be.)

Wandering on, we found some trains.  “Lay on the tracks” she tells me.  Pft.  Sure.  That doesn’t sound precarious now does it?

Trains are seriously huge

“Wouldn’t it be funny if one of the trains started moving with you on it?” She says.

Ignore the "broken" arm...

Don’t jinx things like that miss, as soon as I jumped off this train, away it rolled and the windmill blades were taken closer to their destination.  We, luckily, stayed behind.

Moving to a more colorful part of town, we stumbled upon more than we expected when a car show just so happened to be taking place in the parking lot behind.  Let me twll you, *that* was an experience.  So many hydrolics and shiny things, child-sized bikes that were decked out to the max and staged with Chuckie dolls that no one could ever possibly want to ride, old old old cars and did I mention shiny?

Blindingly shiny at some angles

I hope your weekend was just as adventurous as ours!  Can’t wait to see what the next one holds  🙂
