Taste of Roselle 2014

The weekend kicked off with some errand running. Target now offers in-store pickup for online orders and last week they were offering $10 off a $40 purchase. I ordered Harry a new pair of shoes for school (size 9!!!) and a new shelving unit for our bathroom. After picking up our order Friday evening we headed over to the Taste of Roselle for dinner.

This year there were quite a few local food trucks in attendance. After looking at all the options I decided on Toasty Cheese. I've seen their truck around town a few times and have always wanted to stop by for lunch, but haven't gotten the chance yet... it seems I'm always in a rush to get somewhere when I drive by. Harry and I ordered their basic grilled cheese and a side of fries, both were very good! Ant got Toasty Cheese's sweet potato fries and two sliders from Best Truckin' BBQ, which he loved.

After eating we made our way through the craft fair to the carnival, the thing Harry had been looking forward to all week. There were only a handful of rides, and we let Harry choose 2 to go on.

Before going back home we played one round of Bingo. We wanted to play more, but Harry was getting cranky so it was clearly time to leave.

I don't think I mentioned we got a new car seat last month. The backseat in my car is surprisingly narrow and after we forward faced Harry in our MyRide 65 he just seemed so cramped. So, we moved that seat to Ant's much roomier car and got ourselves a new Evenflo Maestro. It fits so much better in my car and now Harry will be able to ride in both vehicles (once we install the MyRide- on next weekend's to-do list).

So anyways, the police department was hosting a car seat safety check on Saturday. I was confident the Maestro was properly installed, but it never hurts to get it double checked by a professional. Plus, Harry got to see all the police cars and fire trucks up close. The seat was installed correctly, the techs were impressed with how secure we managed to get it, and we were on our way in no time.

After nap time Ant dropped Harry and I off at JoAnn's while he got his haircut. I finally dropped my Woodland Sampler off to be framed. I didn't realize how expensive that is! Even with a gift card I had. But, I put a lot of work into the piece so I want it to look nice. Should be ready in about 2 weeks. While we waited for Ant to come back we looked around the store and found a cute little $1 alphabet stamp set, among a few other things. We had some fun with them when we got home :).

We didn't do a whole lot on Sunday, except for going back to the Taste for lunch. Harry ate at home, but Ant got a bacon grilled cheese from Toasty Cheese and I got a quesadilla. As a treat, we got Harry a tiny shot glass-sized portion of Dippin' Dots. And we let him ride 2 more rides before heading back home.

And this morning we have our very last music class of the summer. We've had so much fun with it! Schedule-wise the next session won't work for us, but we'll definitely be keeping it in mind for an activity next summer. 

Hope your week's off to a nice start!
