Saline Watermelon Festival 2009
It's that time of year again. I've been 'tracking' the festivities of the week on the beloved Facebook. ;) The kids' night, the treasure hunt, the pageants, etc. Been lots of fun already, looks like...and today will be awesome (hot, but so fun). ;) We haven't been able to be there since 2006 (I was preggers with Eissa at the time). Y'all have a great time for me there, ya hear (and eat a chicken on a stick too)? And guess what...WE'LL SEE YOU THERE NEXT YEAR!! Woohoo!!
Can you believe these awesome pictures?!? Love them. I stole them off Facebook...thanks Donnie C. and James David. ;) This is from the festival in 1931.
