A dose of food (and fun)...

This weekend was a hot one. Way too hot for it only being April! And where could I be found you ask? Outside...all weekend long. Call me crazy. On Saturday I celebrated my first lake day of the year. We hit Saguaro Lake and the boys did some wake boarding while I worked on my tan. Then Sunday I volunteered at The Scottsdale Culinary Festival. It's a local charity event that supports art awareness and art education. It features 50+ food trucks and breweries from around town. We worked for 10 hours running around outside in 106 degrees but definitely took advantage of the 75 dollar food and drink credit. Pretty sure I sweat out everything I ate and drank so I think I broke even.

 All access?..sign me up.
 I realize this picture is ridiculous but this proves that we should never be given walkie talkies. We only pretend to look official.

After 10 hours we left with apples and an already opened bottle of wine...those are some perks.
But seriously, even though it was hard work it was such a fun event and supports a great cause. If you live in the area you should check it out next year!
