Girl Friday

This weekend is all about the kids, every once in awhile you have to have a weekend all about them. Tonight we are going to Forest Park for Balloon Glow, one of my favorite nights. Saturday is "The Great Forest Park Balloon Race" where hundreds of hot air balloons race from Forest Park in midtown to a field about 30 miles west of the city. Tonight, all the balloons racing, hover over Forest Park and light up. It is a beautiful sight, plus as an added bonus there will be entertainment, food and wine.
Saturday, the traveling carnival is coming to town. Yes, they still have traveling carnivals, and yes they are just as creepy and shady as you remember, but for some odd reason my kids just don't seem to care!!
Sunday night is family dinner at our house with my sister that lives in town and her family, my parents, and my in laws who are back from Michigan. I think I am going to serve something from my official go to girl for recipes, she has never let me down!!
Have a beautiful weekend!!
