Days of the Swiss

Do you ever find yourself saying things the way that your friends say them? I had "Swiss Days" as the post title and I thought 'hey, that's a little boring. How can I spice this up?' Automatically my friend's voice popped into my head. And thus you have it.

Anyway, that's not what this post is about, this is a post about Swiss days!

 Swiss days is one of our family traditions (which I do not know the origin of, we are in no way Swiss... that I know of). We go every year, usually on the Saturday, but this year, because of the Potter Run today, we went on Friday. We always go really early before it gets too hot and too crowded. I'm telling you, the Free Shuttle is the way to go. 

THIS is the original reason for my attending Swiss days. It never seemed worth it to me to get up that early on a Saturday and drive out to midway to walk around a bunch of booths... which I had no money to spend at. I'm telling you, if you buy nothing else, the scones are worth it. You could eat them plain and it would be worth it, but with a little cinnamon and sugar or the jam.... AMAZING. 
This year I spent more than I have ever spent at Swiss days (easily done since last year was the first year I bought anything ;) ), but guys... The clothes! There were so many cute things! If you are into clothes, or decor, or jewelry, or art, or books, or blankets... or awesomeness, I'm telling you that you need to go to Swiss days next year! 

What are your family traditions (non-holiday or holiday, either one!)? What did you do this weekend?
