Our Twilight and Children’s Festival Fun Weekend

This weekend I split my activities with the kids. I really wanted to see Twilight so Saturday afternoon I took my sons to see it. Can I just say it was AWESOME and I seriously think Stephanie Meyers should write another book. It was definitely left (both the book and movie) with the opportunity to do so. I have to say that I really think these movies have done a good job following the story line. I was not at all a fan of the first movie, the second was a notch above the first but not great. The third and last were AMAZING! I am so ready to watch them both again!

Sunday while my husband enjoyed a little bit of relaxation and football (that is what Sunday’s are for isn’t it?), I took Honey down to the 2012 Midtown’s Children Festival. It was a free event full of tons of crafts, chalk drawing, train rides, petting zoos and more. The boys were a little to old for this activity so it was just Honey and I.

When we were relaxing enjoying a hot dog Honey said to me, “They really have some great stuff and lots of crafts!” If you are a loyal reader you probably know by now crafts are one of Honey’s favorite activities. The weather was perfect for a day strolling down the street meeting new local vendors, eating some good food, and letting Honey do all the crafts she wanted.

Here are some photos from our day:

  1. that childrens festival looked fun!

  2. That looks like a great weekend. I’m glad you got a chance to see the movie!

  3. Your family is adorable! How fun that you got to attend the Children’s Festival. Those kinds of things are the best. There is going to be a winter fest in our town the first weekend in December, and we’re looking forward to it!

  4. I wish we had a children’s festival like that here. It looks like so much fun for the kids.

  5. I think it’s great that you did the movie with the boys and then had the next day with your daughter. I still refuse to see Twilight though. lol

  6. Hi Colleen
    I just had to come in and say your daughter looks soooo adorable in that hat. It suits her completely. I just love it. Great photo. 🙂 Looks like you had a great day filled with lots of fun.

  7. Oh that looks fun. I haven’t made it to the theater yet:( Dying to see the last and I’ve heard another book is in the talks:)

    It looks like Honey had a great time and I am sure you did too – just by watching her smile and concentrate on the crafts

    It sounds like you had a great weekend with the family. I too went to see Twilight. I went with my friend. We had a great time and I agree there is room for another movie.

    It sounds like you had a great weekend spending time with family. I too went to see Twilight with my friend and I thought it was great. I agree it does leave room for her to write another book and make another movie.

  13. You guys look like you had a great time! I think I may be the last woman alive to have not seen any of the Twilight movies.

  14. Hannah Chase says:

    I didn’t like the first one either which made me not want to watch the others, so perhaps I should watch the others and give it another try. I’ve never read the books though, so maybe I should start with those first! Cute pictures, I’m glad you and your family had a fun day!!

  15. what a fun event. My daughter would love to hold that bunny!

  16. Robin Quick says:

    I cant wait to see Breaking Dawn part 2. It looks sssooo good & is getting great reviews! My hubby & son both are also fans of the movies so Im hoping we will go see it soon! As far as festivals go, I really miss going to them! We have a few here that are annual events that we use to go to every year when our son was little. But not so much anymore. Hes 15 and thinks he has better things to do. LOL
