We have been enjoying time outside the past couple of days. This is the coldest October I can remember, but then again, I do have a terrible memory. I HATE having to get coats and shoes and hats on the kids and trying to stuff them in their car seats every time we go out. It makes me just want to stay home.

Yesterday we went to two festivals, Mississinewa 1812 and the Riley Festival. The 1812 festival focused on the war of 1812 as fought in this area. Before we left I asked Will if he wanted to go see soldiers fight and he freaked out so I had to tell him we were going to Target. When we got there he complained a bit, but soon started to enjoy the seeing the cannons being fired at the river battle. It was very muddy out and the whole festival was on rough terrain so I didn't use the stroller. I had to carry Maggie about 2/3 of the time. The rest of the time I coaxed them along with Goldfish and other treats. After we left that festival we went to Nanny & Poppy's house for a visit and then came home. We went to Riley Days for dinner where they had the usual fair food vendors.
Have you ever kept a food journal? I find it is helpful when my weight is on the upswing. But there are some days when I just would rather not document what I ate. I will give you a sample of the foods I ate yesterday of which I am very ashamed.
1 pork chop
1 cup of apple cider
1 medium frybread with cinnamon sugar and apple butter
1/2 bag of popcorn with delicious sugar coating
1/3 of a bloomin' onion
a few bites of gyro meat
2 chocolates and 1/4 of a red velvet cupcake
So you might say I ate my way through two festivals yesterday. And how do you think I felt last night? Pretty sluggish and bloated on top of the fact that I smelled like wood smoke and carnies. But I slept well and will try to make up for my poor diet yesterday by eating better today.
