The Weekend: Good Stuff

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at musenmutter.blogspot.com

  • fireworks on Friday night. If we wouldn't have had so many trees in the backyard, we could have watched from our back balcony.
  • Pumpkin getting to make paper. Here she is, with Daddy, using a shop-vac to get some excess water out.
  • beautiful weather both days (if a tad bit hot)
  • listening to a band in the food tent (The Happy Schnapps) who sang songs like this one with the chorus (as best I remember... ) "This ain't my bathroom. I can't sleep here tonight. It's got a padded seat. The toilet paper's on the left; it should be on the right. I'm in the dark. I've got to find the light. This ain't my bathroom; I can't sleep here tonight." and another one that went "The Bears still suck. The Bears still suck. The Bears still suck. The Bears still suck." You'll note they have their own bartender on the stage.
  • Three words: triple chocolate doughnut
  • This little plastic car in the kids' area was Penguin's absolute favorite, possibly because she could (mostly) get in and out of it on her own.
  • the dream I had about Indiana Jones. (Hey, I didn't say they were ALL festival-related.)
  • our first balloon drop
  • Pumpkin getting "levitated" by a magician
  • Racing up the steep hill with the strollers. 'Course, I think the girls enjoyed that one more than Mr. Kluges and I did.
  • being close enough to walk to and from the festival, which helped to work off the fair foods we enjoyed
  • not having to make lunch Saturday or Sunday since we ate there
  • The petting zoo was a big hit with the kids. We even had to go back the second day.
All in all, a very enjoyable weekend. However, I am glad that it'll be a whole 'nother year before it comes around again. Fun, but I couldn't do it every weekend.

The Happy Schnapps sounds like my kind of band!

That sounds like a FANTASTIC weekend! Excpet maybe the running up that hill, Kate Bush aside.
