Bikes, Blues BBQ & Babies.

If you live anywhere near Northwest Arkansas, then you probably don't need an explanation for BBBBQ. For those that don't, basically, Fayetteville boasts one of the biggest bike rallies in the country. Like, I think it's 4th in the nation or something crazy like that. A lot of people locally hate it. While it does bother me that traffic is out of control and the roads are taken over by bikers, I kind of tend to lean on the side of optimism and realize that it brings in A LOT of money to our local economy. So if we can't beat 'em, we join 'em right? It has been true HEAVEN for my little boy who is obsessed with all things that have an engine... motorcycles are no exception. Last Thursday night was the first night of the rally, so Drew and I packed the boys up after dinner, and headed down to stroll around. Brayden was MESMERIZED. Seriously you guys, he is normally a chatty Kathy, and never takes a break between words. But that night he was literally so mesmerized he barely said anything. He just soaked it all in. The great part was that since we went on the first night it wasn't really that crowded, which is perfect if you are having to maneuver the crowds with a double stroller.  The boys also had a first that night: funnel cake! It was a hit with both of them... they take after their momma :) Brayden also enjoyed dancing on the patio to the live band.... what can I say, the boy likes to party ;) It was such a fun night, and I hope to make it a tradition with the boys... like I said, if you can't beat 'em, you might as well join 'em :)

Drew asked Brayden if he would share...
and he did! Such a sweet heart.
