Every year for 25 years now my hometown has a children's festival. At somewhat the last minute I decided that since Kevin was working the weekend, I would drive home to take the kids to it. We drove home Friday afternoon at naptime and were hoping to go to the talent show Friday night but there weren't enough participants so it was canceled. Bummer. So we just hung out at Grandma and Grandpa's--I'd brought the kids' bikes. Then Saturday at noon the festivities started with a parade...

the kids, waiting for the parade to start. my parents took {sleeping} Carter in the stroller and we waved at them as we walked by
since we were walking IN the parade and at the very end we still saw everything go by as they were lining up

all the kids were given a "free ice cream" for walking in the parade. a perfect time for a cool treat!

adorable little caterpillar the kids were too scared to crawl through. the crawl-through ones are a tad scary.
the bounce house! The kids actually gave it a try! Just a few months ago the kids {particularly Eli} wouldn't even try these inflatable things. He was too scared. This time around he finally gave it a go and had loads of fun! And of course he's the ring leader so whatever he does, Hannah just follows right along (except for snow and big swimming pools).
Probably the favorite of the day. Both kids went again and again! I was very impressed with Hannah's ability to get up these big things!
Eli gripped the edge almost every time.
Hannah pretty much just went right on down.
the new concept of the day...waiting in line. Grandpa was so great about taking them to each thing!
the kids were getting tired so I suggested they go on the "tractor train". Aren't these things so cute??

what Carter did most of our time there...oh, one more inflatable they'd just set up!

Then we walked home stopping halfway for an ice cream break. It was a fun day and neat to see a lot of old classmates in parent mode! =)
