Happy Monday! Our family had a fantastic weekend full of the best summer has to offer! Get ready for a photo heavy post – I couldn’t choose ;)
I’m from a small town in Iowa called Audubon. It’s just over an hour away from Omaha, so it’s perfect for quick trips back home and visits from grandpa and grandma. This weekend was Audubon’s annual T-Bone Days celebration, so we headed back to see old friends and join in the fun!
Now would probably be a good time to also mention that Audubon is home the Albert, the world’s largest bull. Yep, he’s a giant concrete bull that stands 30 feet tall and weighs 45 tons.
Eleanor met Albert last year and looked SO tiny next to him. And 1 year later? Still itty bitty, haha :)
The weekend was fast and furious! We grilled out with my good friend Jessie on Friday night, woke up for a community breakfast on Saturday, visited Albert, played at the park, ate at our favorite local restaurant (Darrell’s Place), and headed back into town for the T-Bone parade…
It was so great to catch up with my friends from high school. I love that our community brings everybody back together each year. T-Bone is definitely a beloved tradition, and in two years we’ll be celebrating our 10 year reunion (yikes!).
Saturday evening was filled with even more summer fun! My friend Hannah scored tickets to a Storm Chasers baseball game. I’ve ran races out at Werner Park, but I’d never actually been to a game. It was a blast! They played the Iowa Cubs, so I was a bit conflicted about who to cheer for. The Storm Chasers played well and won in the end!
Does your hometown have any fun traditions?
