Saturday fun

Our town's festivities were going on last week. On Tuesday, while Emily was at church girls' camp, Matt was part of the Talent Show, singing and dancing with his dance group.

Then on Saturday there was a parade in the morning, with entertainment, food, craft shops, and face painting booths, and an antique car show going on in the park.

Waiting for the parade to start, Michael loved playing, spinning, and twirling Emily's parasol.

This is the moment we've been waiting for! Emily and Matt on their dance group's float.

Later on in the park, Emily & Matt join with their group to provide entertainment.

Emily singing "My Boyfriend's Back" with her group.

Matt sang "You're in the Army Mr. Jones" and danced with his group.

We had a great time, even though the heat was melting us all! Afterwards we went to the local museum that is only open during our town's festivities, visited an old time cabin, and played, ate, and visited in the park. Life's simple pleasures are often the best!


  1. I love that first picture!
    There is something so classic and endearing about it. :)

  2. What a fun couple of days!

    Been wondering...are you feeling better? Would love an update... :)

  3. Wish I could have seen the performance. How exciting.
    What a great day.
