Spring Fling 2010
The Spring Fling festival only comes to our downtown area once a year the first weekend in May. We never miss! Even when Jayce was only a few days old, we left him with Monica and took Jaina. Now *that* is dedication, right?
We got there at 2 PM and went straight for the kiddie rides.
And the inflatables....
Twenty dollars later (and no, I'm not kidding), we left the kiddie zone and walked around a bit.
If my opinion had counted, we would have brought the stroller. Yes, I know he's 5. But he doesn't have the stamina to keep up nor the stranger awareness to stay close to us. Oh well, those weren't MY shoulders that were sore :)
Hey, you want to see what grumpy tired hot kids look like?
So, we parked ourselves in some shade and got a snack.
Jayce? Not so much...
We ended our time at the festival by checking out all the vendors. Jayce bought a marshmellow shooter and Jaina picked out a stuffed dog (surprised? I didn't think so.)
Then Jayce had a complete meltdown and had to be carried to the car by Brian while Jaina and I finished up.
All in all, a success :) Now its really Spring!
That looks fun. How do you know about all these jun activities you are always doing? I need to do more research because we love that kind of stuff.ReplyDelete

When we go to Disney, we always rent the double stroller and by the end of the day, my oldest will hop in for a ride. There's just so much they can take!
