Yesterfest and more

We have always been a family that likes to get out and do stuff on the weekends.  It doesn't have to be anything fancy we just like to spend time together enjoying new adventures and making memories.  Being fairly new to the Austin area means there is still a lot to discover. Through searching online for a fun weekend outing my mom discovered that Bastrop's Yesterfest was going on this weekend.  It sounded like something we all would like.  After enjoying Jonathan's yummy breakfast burritos we headed that way this morning. There were a lot of street vendors selling anything from funnel cakes, to handmade dresses, to baby turtles. There were also activities for the kids such as a petting zoo and bounce house.

We had read online that there was going to be a petting zoo, pony rides, and train rides.  When we got there we didn't see any of these things and of course Kadynce was devastated since she woke up this morning talking about riding a train.  We finally found the "petting zoo" which consisted of about 8 goats in a small pen.  Kadynce was thrilled! 

 My sweet little girl trying to be brave in the bounce house.  She finally worked up enough nerves to stand up for about 1 second.

She might not have gotten to ride a pony, but she did manage to get a horse balloon.

 Family pic at the end of the day.  We were tired and sweaty, but we had a wonderful time!

Tata bought this beautiful handmade dress for Kadynce at Yesterfest.  This picture just doesn't even do it justice.  It's so pretty and I can't wait for her to wear it.  I just have to make a matching bow first lol.

On our way home I happened to get on Craigslist to see if there were any new postings for playhouses.  I have been checking periodically for something to put in the backyard for Kadynce to play with.  We don't typically just buy her such a big toy without it being a special occasion, but this was an amazing deal and we just couldn't pass it up.  I think she would live in the thing if we let her.  I'm planning on doing a post really soon about buying second hand.  We hardly ever pay full price for anything around here!

After everyone cleaned up and rested Nana and Tata took Kadynce for the evening and Mommy and Daddy got to enjoy a night out at the movies.  It was amazing!
