So we decided to head out to one of Fort Worth’s big Annual Festivals this weekend to see what all the fuss was about and had a BLAST! Addyson and I were Duck Race Champions (pictures below), there were TONS of things for the kids to do including crafts, food, playgrounds, obstacle courses, etc. Both kids had a blast!
Here’s the official picture link from the Duck Race website: http://duckrace.smugmug.com/Other/Mayfest-Friday-Lanes-1/i-MDtsJdW/0/L/SNV10406-L.jpg
So last weekend I got to spend the weekend away from my hubby and my kiddos to head down to Houston to watch my brother-in-law, Devin, compete in the USBC (United States Barista Championships). He won his region (Northwest) a few months ago earning him the trip to the Nationals. I hadn’t seen my brother, Isaac (who lives in Houston) since last August and I hadn’t seen my sister and her hubby, Laura and Devin, since last October (the live in Portland, OR). So we all took advantage of this trip to make it a family event. So my mom flew into Fort Worth and we drove down to Houston on Thursday night. Friday morning we met my brother at his house and took the bus downtown to meet my sister at the competition. I am not a coffee drinker (Dr.Pepper all the way for me) but I learned A LOT this weekend about coffee, its origins, the different tastes it can have, etc. Devin made it to the semifinals but didn’t make it past that but we had a blast and I am SO glad we did it!!
Here are some pictures of our fun weekend and the competition.
