Saturday we started off with the parade. The kids were lined up next to the street and armed with bags to collect their junk, oops, I mean loot. We are stocked up on suckers and tootsie rolls for the summer. Aren't you jealous?
Bruiser was STILL a little bit afraid of the sirens and some of the costumes. Sweet Pea? Not so much. This boy cracks me up! He is my wild, yet sensitive one.
Look what we spotted! Some homegrown crack!
We rode some rides. Of course, I only have a picture of Sweet Pea since I was scoping out the craft booths while all of the boys rode the rickety rides. Plus, I can't watch them ride those "portable" rides. I just have to LOOK AWAY.
We knew it was time to end the Saturday fun when the ugly cry reared it's head.
Sunday was more of the same. Dimples is seen here sporting a new 'do.
Doesn't Bruiser remind you of the Incredible Hulk? We practically had to pay him to wash his hair last night. He loved it!
Oh, and even worse, he juggled with fire. He even ATE the fire. I told you I needed prayer. Do they ever hear the part where they say, "Don't try this at home"? Yeah, I didn't think so.
We ended the weekend with dinner and a movie in our air conditioned living room. Some of you have recommended that I watch "Over the Hedge," due to my complete love of all things squirrel and possum. (You heard the sarcasm in my voice, right?!) Yeah, really enjoyed the movie, loved the jokes that went over the kids' heads, didn't think even THAT squirrel was cute, and I am now certain I am living out that movie in real life.
