2009 Bertram Oatmeal Festival 5My good friend, Julie, lives out in “BFE” – and they have a yearly Oatmeal Festival there in early September (yes, I realize I’m behind on photo sharing and blogging. What else is new). I love small town festivals. I know that makes me weird, especially because I don’t like living in small towns (although I do believe that Austin is the biggest small town in the US, everyone seems to know everyone else around here or at least someone that knows someone you know). ANYWAY… my other good friend, Ellen, and I took pity on our husbands and drug ourselves out there and let the husbands have a play date.

It was SO much fun. We made it just in time for the pet parade (which is what the kids were looking forward to the most), where our friends were showing off their prize winning chicken (it had the most spots). Then the real parade and then we went over for lunch and carnival activities. That part was a little small and underwhelming, but it was still a lot of fun (and the kids didn’t notice, I just hate carnival games) ;)

The best part according to Jamie was being with his friends and Cassie said it was getting rained on by oatmeal (a little crop plane flies around and dumps oatmeal on you. Heh)

I definitely think we’ll be going back next year! Here’s some photos to share – you can always see more by visiting my flickr (badge on the right). The lighting was great out there that morning… I, on the other hand, am an idiot and forgot to charge the camera so we ran out of juice just before Mr. Oatmeal came! Darn it!
