I LOVE that our little city does the festival at the beginning of summer. It's such a fun way to kick off summer! We had a busy week so we weren't able to do much of the festivities during the week except the dinner. Shawn was at his softball game so I took the kids to the park to eat. Of course the kids didn't like the food and hardly took any! I told them to take it all and me and the older girls would eat it.
It was a beautiful night and we just relaxed and then the kids played in the sand. It was nice.
The good 'ole parade was the next morning. My parents and JJ's family came. Love this little parade!
None of the other kids wanted to be in this great picture. Ugh.
Always lots of candy!
After the parade, we went home for lunch and a rest and then went back to the park for the carnival. We didn't want to pay for our kids to go but they were dying to go so we had them pay for 1/2 their ticket. They did and loved it! A lot of the rides were spinning rides so I had heard about people getting really sick. Luckily, none of us got sick!
We took a little break and went over to the free kids games. The kids got a bunch of little prizes and had fun with the games.
When we got back to the carnival, we found friends to ride rides with.
We also took care of my neighbors kids while we were there so my friend could get packed to move to California for a few months. Cute kids!
The fire trucks sprayed their hose after a while. It was a great way to cool off! It was perfect!!
We finished off the weekend with a fireworks show with the neighbors. So great.
