What a great time it was when we came home with some beauties like these. The strings had completely tangled by the time we got home and there was red and yellow furry stuff shedding all over everything.
As I said, it's pretty typical to find the same things there every year. The hair bows are updated or they have the very latest in scrapbooking supplies, but other than that, it's more of the same. This year I tried some food from a little Peruvian booth. It was pretty yummy. I usually go with the Navajo taco because, when else can you eat a Navajo taco? And of course I love a shaved ice. I usually get Tiger's Blood because it's good--but why is it called Tiger's Blood? I don't get it. It's kind of nice, though, these days the shaved ice places let you put on your own flavoring. I like that because it's more about the ice for me than the flavor. I want mostly ice with just a little flavor. I hate it when they soak those things! And while I'm on the subject, why don't we have any shaved ice places here in Vegas? It's so bizarre. It seems like they would do well at least 10 months of the year. I remember going to a frozen yogurt place years ago here in town. When we went in I noticed that they had shaved ice on the menu. Of course that is what I wanted to order. When I told the girl what I wanted she said, "Oh. We don't have shaved ice right now." I asked, "Why?" She replied--rather rudely, "Umm. It's like the middle of the winter. It's way too cold for shaved ice." Now, granted, it was January and might have been a chilly 50 degrees or something, but we were in a FROZEN yogurt store! I just couldn't quite follow that logic.
This year, however, my dad pointed out a new booth to us. The company is called Haven Empire and they sell t-shirts and hats and stuff. All of which say HAVEN on them. They are really cool shirts so we all got one (yeah! for once our souvenirs were nice and practical). Eric's is my favorite and he gets compliments on it every time he wears it. You can check them out here. Pictured are samples of what we bought. Haven and Bentley also got a shirt but I can't find any pictures of the children's t-shirts on their web site.
How about a picture of Eric actually modeling the shirt? And Savannah in her Larsen's Frostop t-shirt (she loves it when I take her picture).
