Canton was SO STINKIN' FUN ....!!

Hello, Bloggerettes....
Oh, boy..we had so much fun at Canton. It was the most AWESOME trade day sale I've ever been to in my entire life. If you ever get the chance to go, go for it. The weather was slightly cool...we wore hoodies most of the time....and it was a tad windy but SOOO much better than it will be in the summer months.
It gets MIGHTY hot in East Texas in the summer. May is the perfect time to go....

 Stacy in the pilot seat, me the co-pilot....
and DEEDS ... TAIL GUNNER  :>)

It was about 1 in the afternoon when we got started on Thursday.  Canton is a 7 hour drive from Lubbock
and we wanted to get there in time for a nice dinner and a COMFY bed....get a good nights
sleep for the MARATHON of FIRST MONDAY TRADE DAYS in CANTON, TEXAS.
WOO....HOO....!!!

 No bluebonnets around Canton right now.
Not sure what the yellow ones are called...other than BEAUTIFUL....

 At the motel, she got all settled in with her book before she was ready to sleep.

The next morning....WE WERE READY !!
Stac had her cart....
I bought one when we got inside the flea market and it's red...with a cup holder...
gonna look cute by the pool for wet towels.

 Lookin' for a signal....

Takin' a rest...










The top was cute but she said she felt like a CLOWN in in......:))

...didn't buy it.














We ate once at the MONKEY something CREPES...

and I highly recommend it.



She is absolutely one of the BRIGHTEST STARS in my whole universe.
Deeds made our GIRLS GETAWAY WEEKEND
the very best ever !!




Another great thing is that I got to visit with a couple of favorite cousins while on our trip.....



Love ya all......bj

What fun to get away with your girls and shop for goodies. I have always wanted to go, but that's a lot of walking. Anxious to see what you bought.

Jeanne said...

Hooray, you had a wonderful time. I LOVE your photos and the sharing of your wonderful trip. I WANT TO GO. I am glad you are home 'safe and sound' my sister friend.

It is shocking about those girls but a miracle they are out of the h... they were in. I can't even imagine how awful those 10 years have been. Poor things and how sad that their families have suffered so much. Your pic tells it all.
Love, Jeanne

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Debbie said...

It looks just wonderful, and the best part is that it was a girls weekend.

I am in great need of a girls weekend with our three generations in attendance.

Pondside said...

What could be more fun than a road trip with your girls?.....well, a road trip with your girls that includes shopping at a big fair like that! Thanks for taking us along with you.
