We live in the best town!!!

The town we live in ROCKS!!! It's a small town right in the center of wine country. There is a fantastic "town green" and during the spring/summer months there are all sorts of weekly events. Every Thursday night there is music on the green ... a different local band every week and you can bring your own picnic and ice chest ... I think that is great because most events like that require you to buy the food and drinks they sell ...that gets pricey!!! I mean 3 dollar waters ....SERIOUSLY?!?!
I was super excited to find out there was a Cinco De Mayo (is that how to spell De?) celebration this afternoon. It is awesome to get the girls out of the house ....even though when it's just one of us with both of them it can get a little stressful keeping them roped in! But with our work schedules it is almost always "just one of us" there is no choice but to brave it solo!!!

Ella Grace has been obsessed with my old cell phone lately ... WILL.NOT.PUT.IT.DOWN! That and her baby ....she carries a baby doll around ALWAYS ....(it was in the stroller when this picture was taken). As a matter of fact the baby and cell phone and bear and "yight" aka little tykes light are asleep with her NOW. So today we were walking along and I turned around to check on her and this is what I found ..... is she texting? calling da -eeeee (daddy)???? As a really funny aside ....we were walking along a man was talking on his cell phone and Ella stopped in front of him, put the phone to her ear and said .... HeyYooo!!! (fyi ... hello) ... she was imitating cute!!!
One of the great groups that performed!!! Man ... this music is so festive!! LOVE IT!!!
Edie and Ella love to drink from water bottles and big girl cups ....Edie actually sticks her tongue in the glass/bottle and lets the water/juice touch it .... and often says Ahhhhhhhh!
Little wind blown Amish haircut orangutang .....LOVE HER!!!
screwing the cap back on ....
dancing and rehydrating....
put on my my my boogy shoes .......
"what do you mean you are taking a break?"
They had beer .....for sale....outside the public California!!! I had to have one, even though I don't really love beer .....just for principle. It made me very very thirsty!!!
See .....the tongue!!! She is so sweet ..... and looks so much like her daddy!!!!
people watching!!
food covered (and a little snot) sweet face!!!
We ate pizza with knives!!!
GIANT burritos .... this thing was at least 3 pounds!!! I ate a little, Edie ate ALOT and Ella ate some .....we still tossed over half a burrito!! I know we could have saved it but with TWO 2 year olds to keep track of ....the burrito didn't make it.
Ella suckered me into buying one of these obnoxious balloon things. FIVE bucks!!! Now ask me if she has touched it since I bought it ....or has she even looked at it again??? Ummmmm NOPE!!!
VERY shortly after this picture was taken she knocked this entire display over. I think it was the wind but I think the sweet Spanish speaking man thought it was her ....or at least I think that is what he said!!!

Does it make me a fatass to feel bad that the burrito didn't make it?

Great pictures...I wish I lived somewhere fun! Damn suburbia!

That looks like so much fun. The weather alone just looks fabulous. One of these years I'll convince my husband to move to California. *sigh*
