Summerfest 2010

The annual Summerfest was this weekend here in town.  Despite the blistering heat, we had a good time.  Here's how it all went down this year.

We started out on main street to watch the parade.  Our whole extended family usually gathers on this corner and sits together.  The kids all get balloons to launch at the start of the parade.  Bo insisted that he was NOT going to run for candy, but as soon as it started coming and the other kids were filling their bags, he quickly followed suit.  Poor Cruz had to be contained the whole time, he would have been IN the parade if we would've let him!  All he wanted to do was run!

Jaden was riding on this float.
One of my uncles and a few of our cousins were also in the parade.

These two beauties, Kelsey and Courtney, showed up just as the parade was ending.
After the parade, we headed up to the park where all the festivities (if you can even call them that) were going on.  We went straight to the little petting zoo for the boys.

One of the main attractions of the day is the sand volleyball tournament.  The kids took advantage of the firetruck wetting down the sands.
We ate bbq beef burgers for lunch.
And Bo had a good run on the bouncy thing before we headed home for naps.
During the heat of the afternoon, Bo and I headed out to my mom's pool.  Kelly and Cruzie came out after waking from their naps.
While we were laying in the pool, my brothers pulled up in a school bus.  Yes, a school bus.  A couple of their friends (for whatever reason) went in together and bought a school bus.  So for fun, they were cruising around in it.  What else would you do on a Saturday afternoon in this town!?!  So after thinking about it for awhile, we decided we wanted a ride on this fabulous thing.  After much persuasion, we convinced them to give us a ride over to my aunt's pool.  Let's just say it was the best field trip I've ever taken ;)

Not the safest trip I've ever taken, but definitely fun.

The bus ride was very short lived, my brothers kept saying what dorks we were the whole time.  They don't understand that WE DON'T GET OUT MUCH! 
Things were pretty wild over at my aunt's pool once we got there.
The evening ended with a bbq at my uncle's shop in town. 
Cruz was sad when I took his chicken bone away from him.
He was lovin all the attention from the girls.
We were invited to a block party that evening, but the kids were just too tired to go another minute.  We headed home early and hit the hay.  We were all exhausted!
