My little boy turns 6 this week and this past weekend we kicked off the celebration with a trip to Rhode Island to see Mimi and Gpa J. We started our visit off in Providence at the Heritage Festival. It was a celebration of community and culture and there were so many different countries represented. There was food, dancing, music and tents devoted to each of the countries. The kids were given passports and so they walked around with Mimi and Gpa J getting them stamped, it was a well done event :)
After an Italian lunch out (you have to eat Italian food when in RI), we went back to Mimi and Grandpa's Farm to check out what was left of the Giant Sunflower garden (it peaked a few weeks ago), Kiki's special dahlias and have a birthday celebration for Master Z. Check out these giant gourds below....Uncle B is growing them for instruments....they are HUGE!
