coast guard festival.


What a weekend!! Coast Guard Festival is my favorite weekend of the whole summer, if not the whole year. Let’s take a visual journey through my weekend.

Some healthy food.

Lots of ice cream. This is one of two flurries and an ice cream cone.

An walk through the arts and craft show. This sign made me smile. “I’d exercise, but it’d make me spill my drink. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.”

Lots of quality time with my beautiful mom. Love her so much!

We split a doughy, greasy, amazingly delicious Elephant Ear (also known as fried dough covered with cinnamon and sugar)

A weekend wouldn’t be complete without posting an Operation Beautiful note.

I spent lots of time sitting on the waterfront with this view.

And, the most epic fireworks display I have ever seen in my life. Awesome doesn’t even begin to describe it.

There was also some undocumented pancakes, pizza, and other assorted foods I can’t think of, and lots and lots and lots of walking, a couple naps, and time with other family members. It was an absolutely fantastic weekend and I am already looking forward to next year!
