This weekend we were throwing around ideas about what to do and we came across a nearby fall festival + classic car show. Ez loved the cars best. No surprise there. We even came across a real life Finn McMissile type car. But the real star of the show was this intricate mini race course where the kids could race remote control cars. Ez was fine just being a spectator, but there was definitely a meltdown when it was time to leave. I'm pretty sure he would've happily watched those cars circling that track for hours if we'd let him. Hands down the highlight for me were the tamales. Not sure how fall-themed tamales are, but they were cheesy, and that's all that really matters.
Afterward we wandered around Main Street and spent a good amount of time in a toy store where Ez played with...what else? More cars, of course. When it was time to go Ez and I had a mini stare down because he wanted to bring home a toy car exactly like one he already owns. We compromised and got a new bath toy instead. Don't worry, it was a car bath toy.
The rest of our weekend was pretty laid back. We did the farmers market on Sunday, followed by shoe shopping for Ez. If you've ever gotten shoes on a screaming toddler sprinting between clothing racks and table displays in a crowded store then all the applause and wine for you. We vowed never to go shoe shopping on a Sunday again. Live and learn.
Aside from the mall craziness it was a fun weekend spent exploring yet another new to us area.
