My family and I have been busy lately.  Hence my absence on the web.  With all the business, we're ready for a break.  Lucky for us, there's a TON going on Downtown this Saturday.  It's time for fun!

Get your morning started with a cup of coffee or tea from Pour Jon's before heading over to the 34th Annual Fishing Derby (begins at 7:30am).  My boys love this annual event.  Stay for Farmer's Market (opens at 8am).  It's Kids' Day this Saturday, so be sure to bring them along.  The scavenger hunt (with prizes) along with other activities begin at 10am.

You'll probably be hot, thirsty, and hungry after playing and picking out vegetables and granola at the market, so head to Cafe on Broadway next.  They've got cold drinks and yummy lunches!

Then it's rest time.  :-)  Stop by the Library and pick up a few books before heading home.

If resting isn't your thing (it's certainly not mine!), perhaps a little shopping is in order...  Amy's Closet, Four Corner Frames, AmandromedaLocal Flair Two Gals Junk, Siloam Flowers and Gifts, and more!

Time for dinner!  Fratelli's or Emelia's are both good choices!  Grab a dessert to go and head out for the evening activities...

*Creative Corner on Broadway is part of a KISS Crop 4 Joplin event.  Visit them on facebook for location and other details.
*There's a play at the Sager Creak Art CenterThe Kitchen Witches is playing this weekend.
*Second Saturday Music is in the park!  Yay for Cobb Brothers Bluegrass Band!

Bodies tired and memories full of fun, it will be time to head for home.  Rest up, though, because there's always something happening on Broadway Street!

I'll see you Downtown!
