We had a great weekend last weekend. The weather was so much nicer and cooler than it has been. Saturday morning we headed to the fairgrounds to check out the Ozarks Antique Auto Club's annual swap meet.
Someday if we have a little land, we'd like an old truck like one of these at the top of our driveway. It could be a flower bed in the summer, hold pumpkins in the fall, and a Christmas tree in the winter. Yes, we're weird, but I think it would be neat. :)
I'm pretty sure that there were more people at this swap meet than there were at the fair just a few weeks ago. The people watching was well worth the price of admission...which was free. :)
Sadly, my favorite car had already sold. Would I be cute driving this boat? Wearing my Jackie O sunglasses and headscarf with a Springer Spaniel leaning out the passenger side? :)
After the swap meet, we celebrated my dad's birthday with bacon burgers and chocolate cake. Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of our birthday party. I take lots of pictures of silly stuff, but always seem to miss the important stuff! Gotta work on that.
Sunday we spent the day putting the new lettering on David's trash dumpsters. We've done 4 and have one to go!

Bonus points if you can name the movie referenced by the post title!
It is unbearably hot, so it must be time for the fair! We nearly let it get by us this year, but the day before the last day of the fair, we headed out in search of fried foods on a stick and some people watching.
There was a miniature rose competition, which was kind of neat. So many perfect little roses!
I like this guy's approach to eating. No reason to get up to eat. Too hot anyway! ;) We were there during a pig auction. I wanted to take a little video of it, but I was afraid to get my hands up that far. Didn't want to accidentally bid on a pig!
We definitely did not ride the Tilt-A-Whirl, or anything else for that matter. We did enjoy walking though the mid-way. It's a colorful place, in more ways than one!

Our little garden got a late start, and it isn't much, but it has grown two things we can actually eat!
