RC Cola & Moon Pie Festival

This past Saturday the girls & I went with our friends, Jen & Emmy, to the 14th Annual RC Cola & Moon Pie Festival in Bell Buckle, TN. Can you believe there's an actual festival to celebrate the moon pie? We thought it sounded "weird southern" so we decided to check it out. To our delight, we enjoyed shopping the local vendors, eating real BBQ, & laughing at all the fried food options to choose from (fried snickers, fried moon pies). The festival was pretty crowded, & the girls were tired by the end of the day, so we missed the "cutting of the world largest moon pie ceremony," but no regrets, right? I must say, though, the highlight of the day for me was the drive to & from the festival, simply spending quality time with Jen & getting to know her at a deeper level. I'm truly blessed to have Jen as a friend (not everyone would dig a 2 hour drive with 3 girls under the age of 3... just to check out a Moon Pie Festival...you rock!).
We found a local park for the girls to wear down at & as you can see from the first picture, the girlies were wiped out.
Emmy is too adorable to let this picture slide.

Jen, sampling the delicious Lemonade.

I had a blast! Emmy & I truly enjoyed spending the day with you and the girls...getting to know you better. We'll have to do it more often. :) Anymore weird festivals coming up? Mullet festival? Catfish festival? Anything else southern? haha!
