Peaches and Rooftops

This past weekend was packed with so much fun I had to split it into two different posts. You can read about my Friday night here if you missed it. On Saturday a little town named Porter about an hour away from where we live was having their annual Porter Peach Festival. I had been looking forward to this for a few months and my husband loves any and every kind of festival. I love small town charm and peaches so I was pretty excited. Saturday morning we drove down in time to see the parade. It was full of your normal parade entrees but with a few more tractors, wagons and well an old man selling one dollar kisses...no refunds and no samples!
I was pretty excited for the jumbo corndogs, free peaches and ice cream and picking peaches from the orchard. Well I did get my corndog along with a seriously delicious fresh peach tea.
However, the free ice cream line was ridiculously long so I opted to pay the five dollars for ice cream and cobbler to share. We shopped, ate and watched the cobbler contest and auction before heading to pick peaches.

Only to find out the line to even pick peaches at the orchard was so very long and would've taken us at least a couple hours so we decided to make a trip back just to pick soon. I was super bummed but it really was a tad ridiculous. I know I will enjoy it more when it isn't so busy. However, I think we just traded the cool weather that we had last weekend to pick in for less of a crowd. It will be for sure a much warmer day next time we go but I still can't wait. It's the small things in life that excite me...like picking peaches. The peach season ends in September so see you soon Peach Capitol of Oklahoma!
Sunday evening after chruch we topped off the weekend with dinner on the rooftop in downtown Tulsa at El' Guapos. They are known for the their great rooftop atmosphere and it is not a let down.
It was such a beautiful evening, one last cooler night before we got blasted with temps topping out at a one hundred degrees again this week. We enjoyed Mexico style street tacos and learned about dollar taco Tuesday's...we might be in trouble!
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend with lots of fun had. So much fun that I couldn't even included everything in two posts. Summer nights are my favorite...well close behind Fall days. ;)
