Octoberfest and Grand Openings

Lon left the Vietnamese feast early, he was exhausted.  I had to go with him. He took a little power nap and felt much better.
We had a little time to kill before church tonight so we went down to Hutchison Square in downtown Summerville.  Rotary was putting on an Octoberfest. In September.

A pumpkin patch we should check out!

The latest grocery store to come to Summerville. We got some popcorn samples, and a coupon for 5 dollars off of 35, not that we were going to need it.
Spin the wheel for candy!  What ever number you land on is the number of pieces of candy you get!  Lon landed on 6.

Face in the hole.

It was fun seeing people we knew,
 There was a contest to see who could hold up two pitchers full of water while standing on one leg. The lady who won made it look easy.
It was time to head off to church.

After Mass we went to check out the grand openings of Petco and Earth Fare.

Lon is still trying to get another cat.  Probably won't happen.

Lon found the Star Wars displays. These are dog toys.  This does not deter Lon, he wants to get the extra small dog costumes for the cats. He wants to get an R2D2 costume for Ranger and maybe a Vader costume for Scout, or maybe a Luke.   So many to chose from, but Ranger is R2.  That is not changing.

We left the store without the costumes, but we did get the cats a new scratching post.  (the liked it)

Right next door is the new Earth Fare Store. It is a small store and even at 7pm, it was crowded. Could not imagine what it was like on opening day in the morning!

First thing I saw!  The best cheese EVER!

Lon checking out the bulk food wall. He was really interested in the make your own fresh peanut butter machine.  There are dispensers for honey, agave, and maple syrup too!

The Candy Corn popcorn we tried at the Octoberfest was in this display.  I put some of that in the cart.  Lon wanted more candy. We said no.

Dragging Lon away from the baked goods display. They have French macaroons. Lon still loves those!  They will let you sample them too.

Lon informed us that we had skipped dinner and he was getting hungry.

They still had some pizza by the slice. It was huge!
It is a good little store, there are things we will shop for, but we won't be doing all our grocery shopping there.

and yes, we used that 5 dollar coupon.
