More Parades & Parties

Category: Journal

Yes even more parades and festivals and b-day parties. What a weekend for the boys aside from having to suffer from mom and dad cleaning the house on Sunday morn… such is the life of a kid. This weekend proved to be a ton of fun for the boys as we attend the Fat Cat Children's festival here on Saturday. Starting with the parade which of course the boys just loved and could not wait to begin. I am thinking that some day soon we will have to take them to a really grand parade. The really cool part of this was that in a 2 week period Rhys got over his fear of mascots and wanted to hug all of them… so cute. Unfortunately I was unable to get a picture of this.

 After all this it was onto the festival itself with bouncy castles, crafts, face painting (Rhys does not like this still) and real lemonade. The boys had a great time but after 6 hours it was enough for all of us, more proof that the boys are just not ready for Disneyland. However our boys being who they are I think liked the beach the most.

 

Then it was Sunday and off to another B-day party which itself was complete with bouncy castle, face painting and you name it. Wow kids b-day parties are insane these days like it some sort of strange competion or something. I was not in attendance for this one as Naomi let me have an afternoon off down at the lake (hence the reason not many pictures) which was very much appreciated cept for Leeloo who got to swim for the first time. Turns out she is a great swimmer  :tongue:.

Hello so sorry but it would seem that I have been setting my post to local and not public so none of you could see them. Didn't notice this glitch until I was viewing our site from a computer outside of our house. Sorry now for the flood of post but oh well lots to read now…  :w00t:

Parade’s, Fair’s & Crocodiles

Category: Journal

The last month has been very interesting as it seems that every weekend or so we are off doing something new with the boys. I guess that they are at the age where they are a lot of fun to take to different events small and big. 

First it was the parade for May days here in Rutland. The parade wasn't super big or anything (nothing like Macy's) but for boys who had never been to one it was just perfect complete with tractors, clowns, tons of candy and even a rose for mom.

Then there was the Family fun day fair at the rec center here. For Tristan this was tons of fun mainly due to all the bouncy castles but he did have to learn the hard lesson of waiting in line. Tristan wasn't that thrilled of face painting but both boys loved the crafts and such. However the day did prove to us that the boys are too young for Disneyland yet as it was all very tiring for all of us and that was only after 3 hours.

Last let's not forget Croc-a-palooza!! Yes there is a crocodile rescue centre here in town and they put on an even to raise awareness and funds for what they do and a new facility. Of course I just had to take the boys. Sadly I didn't get many pictures of the crocs/alligators but the boys loved the tortoises. All in all it wasn't a huge event but can only grow year by year and it was good to support something as cool as this in town.
