The Tomato Art Festival

Yesterday we went into East Nashville, to the Tomato Art Festival. We went with David's boss Rick, his wife Gloria, and their one year old Samantha. It was a neat little festival totally centered around tomatoes.

There were people dressed as tomatoes, tomato art, areas to paint your hair red, jewelry vendors, music, magicians. It was smaller than we had hoped but the kids had a good time.

Alex talked to a police officer on a Segway and got to take a ride. Unfortunately I couldn't get around quick enough to get a picture of him on it. But Janie got on it and I got a picture of that.

They also tried out hula hooping, until Alex got hit in the mouth with Janie's hula hoop. Then he was done and we had to head on. Later we went to a park close by and walked a mile. I'm so glad it was a nice day. It only got up to about 86 degrees and there was a slight breeze so it wasn't too bad out.

Till Next Time,

Now this looks like fun. Tomatoes are my summer food. I eat enough to get sores on my mouth!
