Saturday evening marked Jeff's annual Harvest Moon Train Ride. This is where the volunteers at the railroad museum he belongs to get together for the first full moon of Fall and ride the train at night...no lights, just a few lanterns and the light of the moon. We usually gather the kids and go out to ride, even though it means very late bedtimes. (Connor woke up Sat. morning, came downstairs with very sleepy eyes, and asked, "Is it time for the "Night Time Train?!?!" He was VERY excited!) This year my parents watched Emma Kate. Connor and I invited some very dear friends from church to come along, and Jeff was the engineer on the steam engine. Since we had company joining us, we of course had to go to dinner first! So we met Steve, Lisa, Lydia, and Eva at Skipolini's for some PIZZA! In case you don't know me very well....I LOVE PIZZA! We had the added surprise of seeing Heidi and family there as well.
I'm not sure if Eva likes the pizza or the ranch better!
You're welcome Steve and Lisa...you only had one child to keep and eye on! We loved having you join us!
Sunday morning we forced ourselves up and out of the house early for church. After, we decided to head to downtown Martinez for their Annual Italian Street Painting Festival. This is where local artists bring their chalk and create masterpieces on the sidewalks. It is very impressive to see what they can do. There were also lots of vendors and the Farmer's Market.
(Still in progress...)
And finally...some Farmer's Market! Connor loves rasberries and I picked up some squash for dinner. Yes, he ate the whole thing before we got to the car!
