Giant Potato Day!

Once a year, the giant potato stops here on it's tour of the states, and today was the day! It weighs over 12,000 pounds! No, it is not real. Since today was the last day of school, we took two of the girls and made a day of it!



They had a craft booth where you could make your own potato head.

Then we went inside to cool off and have ice-cream.


The jukebox was free to play!


Then we went back to feed the goats.

And finally to a large thrift store, where Anne Marie found a long summer jumper and Jazz got an Easy Bake Oven. As soon as we got home, I put my feet up!


“These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.

I can imagine the fun you all had. The ice creams must be very tasty from the smile on that pretty face.

What a fun trip out for you all. Anne Marie's jumper has a real pretty design and color, and Jazz will have many happy hours enjoying her new Easy Bake Oven. I have never seen or heard of the Giant Potato what a fun sight that would be. Another great series of photos, thank you Ginny :)
