We were invited to be a vendor at Autumn on the River, a local festival in Bethlehem, Indiana. It was a beautiful weekend. Sunny and 60’s. The children had a great time. The National Guard was there with a climbing wall. Children 8 and over were allowed to climb it for free. Colter and Emery were able to climb to the top of even the “difficult” section. The guardsman told Jim that they were only the second and third kids to make it to the top all day. The first was a very lanky teenager. (Yes, that’s pride you detect in my tone.)
Emery’s highlight of the day was during Radio Disney’s visit. He won the hula hoop hot potato game (hold hands and pass the hula hoop around each person without letting go, person with the hula hoop is out). For that he got to pick a gift; he chose Sleeping Beauty on DVD.
Fletcher was runner up in the crazy dancing contest. Mom (who was still selling soap) got to hear the announcer say, “Careful Fletcher, before you hurt yourself – Mom’s gonna love all those grass stains.” It seems part of his crazy dancing involved throwing himself onto the ground – very Fletcher. 🙂
At the end of the day, there was a balloon glow which the children unanimously decided to stay and watch. Here is the family while they were filling the balloon.
It was a great end to a great day!
