What a fun past 24 hours we've had! Let me share it with you. Saturday evening we went to Denton for the Arts & Jazz Festival. Things that are awesome about this Festival: live music, Denton, food, interesting people and things to look at, friends. Ryan and I both love Denton so much. I hope Eva decides to go to UNT and follow in our footsteps. She should get a full scholarship based on all of our alumni donations, right? (Haha....we've never given any alumni money....sorry UNT). Back to the Festival. We got there around 5pm and it was a cool 90 degrees outside. I was thankful that I packed Eva's sweater and leggings in case she got cold.
While we were sitting and enjoying our corny dogs I decided to call one of my good friends to see if she was there. She was! I love that I could call her with good certainty that she would be walking around somewhere and want to hang out for a bit. After listening to music together, walking around more, and eating some more food we decided to call it a night and get Eva home. I guess we stayed a bit too long because she was very upset in the car and screamed the entire way home. Oh, well, I'm still glad we went.
Today after church we were sitting around the apartment trying to think of something fun and free to go do and Ryan suggested that we go to Cabela's. When we were making our game plan Ryan said, "I think Eva would like it because they have lots of stuffed animals." I was interpreting that as it being a place with a bunch of toy, stuffed animals that Eva would play with. I was wrong.... he meant actual animals that had been hunted, stuffed, and put out on display. It was so cool to walk around and see all of the areas they have set up. If you've never been before I'd definitely recommend it. It was like the zoo, except the animals were dead and we were inside enjoying the air conditioning. And they sell hunting and outdoors stuff too if you're into that.
One exhibit had a talking pioneer robot. Eva was very interested in staring at him while he gave his talk about hunting elk.
Too little for camping.
They have a restaurant there that smelled amazing, but we went between lunch and dinner times and somebody needed to get home for a nap. I hope we can go back again soon! I never thought I'd say that about a store that sells boats and guns. Happy Weekend!
