So we finally took the baby out on her first official outing last weekend and did I remember to get a picture of her? Of course not, I forgot. Where on earth was my brain at the moment? (Please don't answer that.) So we went to the annual Hyde Park Arts and Crafts Festival and stayed for about two hours. Baby was a VERY GOOD shopper too! I could get use to this~;o) Fall is definitely here as all of the local festivals, craft fairs, and pumpkin patches are in full swing. I just LOVE this time of year! So much to look forward to and so many family friendly activities!! I absolutley LOVE these kind of festivals because they always have so many interesting activities going on, (not to mention they are free fun for the family too~;o) Some of the highlights there included: Locks of Love and The Krewe of South Shore Marauders selling many yummy goodies to help support a good cause, Pottery Barn Kids Halloween Costumes, Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, Holy Cow Kettle Corn (Very YUMMY popcorn btw, check out their site if you are interested in purchasing from them: and various vendors selling their beautiful handmade items. And finally, a word to the wise for all the new moms out there: Travel systems and vending booths just don't mix well. Save yourself the trouble on these types of outings and invest in an infant carrier. What, you already knew this?? Well why didn't you share this wonderful secret with me?? Thanks to my wonderful mom, I finally have one now. These carriers are the best thing since ziploc bags!! Thats all for now friends, until next time~;o)
