Festival Time

Saturday we headed downtown with some friends to check out Festival. For those of you not around here, every June we have Festival of the Arts. There is something like 30-40 food booths with everything from Chinese, Mexican, Greek, Ice Creams - you name it - it there. Then there are different areas with singing, dancing; all kinds of different art forms that you can watch. For the kids, there is painting, balloons and different crafts; all for FREE!!! Shaelyn had a great time doing the crafts. She also got her face painted and a balloon dog. It was warm but actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Anybody that lives near here, should really check this out if you haven't been there before. It was a fun time!



Here we were, sitting under the shade enjoying a bit
of Chinese food. It was delicious!












This gives you an idea of what it looked like downtown.













Weird girls - the heat must be getting to them!











There was a big area for kids to paint. They would
get a sheet of paper and go to work. Shaelyn always got
distracted and was busy talking to the kids next to her!












Working on making her hat at the Mad Hatter.
Look at all the cool
stuff they had to use!












Here she is with her finished hat.
