Well things are rip-roaring around here in Springville, Utah! The first exciting moment of the day was the fact that I harvested our first bounty from our garden. I picked some of those giant spinach leaves off about half of the plants and got enough to make a delicious side salad for Chris and my dinner tonight. Yay!
Look at that fresh picked goodness!
We didn't really have many good salad ingredients, so we made due with what we had. I just threw in some red onion, mozzarella cheese and croutons, and topped it off with some poppyseed dressing. Yum yum!
I'll have to start hard boiling eggs and cooking bacon for the really yummy spinach salads.
The second exciting part of the night was the Springville Art City Days carnival we attended. Apparently this week is party time in the city. They have all sorts of activities going on such as contests, tournaments, displays, markets, food vendors, car shows, live music, a fun run, parade and much, much more. It is craziness! Who needs the Rose Festival when you have Art City Days, right?!
I must have JUST missed it by a week last year when I moved. Yes, one year in 4 days. NUTS.
Tonight was the first night of the carnival and the cheapest, so we figured we better make an appearance. That place was packed! We only got on three rides in three hours! Totally worth is though, they were actually good ones. The games weren't really that awesome and they were crazy expensive (seriously, how do normal people afford these things?), so we played just this one and managed to get a lame prize.
I was super disappointed we didn't make it on the ferris wheel for sunset...maybe when we head back for the parade on Saturday.
Also still need to sample some of the carnival treats. Chris promised me a churro and didn't deliver...he better on Saturday!!
And yes, I know I am so lame for getting excited about this carnival, but I'm a small town gal now folks, remember? Can't wait to attend my first rodeo...
