Weekend of fun

We've been meaning to post some stuff about our fun saturday, but then we have just been so busy since then. Anyways, the day started off with a carnival for the kids and families here in our housing area. Brittney made all of the signs, and so we went early to put them up. Alec got to ride a train, ride a pony, pet bunnies and chickens and goats in a petting zoo, eat hot dogs and sno-cones to his hearts content, and also go on a fire truck. He really enjoyed himself, and that means we did too.After the carnival was over, we went up to San Francisco for the opening of one of our friend's art exhibit. Amanda and Casey are in our ward and are both artists. Amanda is just finishing her MFA and this is her first solo show. It was really incredible to see what she does. It is the kind of stuff that you have to see in person. You can check out her stuff at amandamichellesmith.com, and his at caseyjexsmith.com. Here is one of Amanda's pieces that we saw.



Then we came back home for the joint first birthday party for some kids in the ward. It was fun to see so many of our ward friends and the weather was just great. Then it was home to bed for Alec, and sitting on the couch for us. What a fun-filled, exciting day.
