We might check out the street party on Saturday night July 26th starting at 6pm on Main Street. I'm also considering getting tickets to the Barter Players kids show, The Brementown Musicians. Let me know if you want to join us.

Wings and Wheels

There is an airplane and auto show at Virigina Higlands Airport here in Abingdon next Saturday, July 26th from 10am -4pm. Jacob is crazy about airplanes so we are going to go check it out for sure. I'm not sure about how much it costs, but the proceeds benefit the Kiwanis Childrens programs so it's a good cause.

Our Favorite Summertime Treat

We love to go get snocones from SnoBiz in Bristol. They are open daily from 2pm-10pm. It's a little purple hut across from Sonic on the other side of the interstate from all the other stuff at Exit 7. If you've never tried SnoBiz, the flavors I recommend are Tiger's Blood (a combo of Strawberry and Pina Colada) or the Dreamscile is Jacob's favorite. Beware of the Blue Raspberry! Jacob tried that one once and his mouth and lips were blue for the rest of the day.
