Steak - It's what's for dinner!

Scott's parents had decorative concrete put in their garage - GO hogs!

Thursday night my parents were in town and took Scott and I out for (what else?) - steak! They are leaving tomorrow to go to Romania for 10 days on a mission trip. This is my dad's second trip and my mom's first. I know they will have a wonderful time. My dad is going to try and update a trip blog so go here to read about what they are doing. He said he wouldn't update it until around Wednesday though.
This weekend we went to Magnolia to see my in-laws. After seven years together with Scott - I finally made it to the famous "Blossom Festival"! Magnolia has this great festival on the square that includes a steak cook-off. It's been a one hour special on the food network twice! They had 52 teams this year competing. They each cook 80 steaks and there is a big contest and then you can go and eat the steaks. They have a big parade on Main Street in the morning that all the teams ride in and pull their cookers behind them. Some teams just hang a sign on their cars and some go all out. My 2 favorite were the hawaiian float and the LSU/Arkansas float. There is just nothing better than a small town southern festival. We walked around the square and looked at all the crafts and little stores.
Scott's aunt, uncle and little cousin were also in town visiting. We had a good time spending time with family.

Sounds like you had a great time! We watched the steak cook off on TV the other night.
