Z's Birthday Week Kick Off :)

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 the festival we checked out the river.  For those of you who have never been, Providence is a lovely city (wasn't always this nice) and the river area is quite beautiful. 

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!

Here is the giant Sunflower Garden.  The kids had a blast running through the maze of flowers.  It was hard to get them out of the maze :)
Then it was onto Z's birthday celebration.  Mimi let Z create and design his own cake out of donuts and berries!  How cool is that?!?!?  Z LOVES donuts and loves berries so it was the perfect combination and really delicious :)  It was a tasty end to a super fun day.
On Sunday we spent some time at our local Rail Trail.  The kids biked and Scott and I walked.  It was the perfect end to a wonderful fall weekend. Thanks Mimi and Grandpa for such a special time!
