Local Peanut Festival

Today was the Local Peanut Festival in the little town where I grew up. Superman was going to take Granny Karen's car in to the shop and work on it, but he changed his mind and said that he would go with us to the festival. I am certainly glad that he went with us.
These are my 2 rock climbers. MJ almost at the top and WW getting close too.

This moring when we all finally rolled out of bed, it was raining. The boys were all excited about going to the festival and the rain kinda dampened their spirits. We let the boys know that we still may be able to ride up to the festival and if it wasn't raining then we could walk around. That gave them just enough to dry out their spirits a little. With that said and done, Superman and I disappeared to get dressed and ready to ride. Once the boys saw that we were dressed, they disappeared for about 1 minute and returned all dressed and ready to ride. I love the excitement in children.

Was it only raining at our house? 10 minutes down the road and the rain had stopped. There were 5 of us who were really glad we decided to give the weather a chance. It seemed like the closer we got the more the excitement grew.

The festival was about 10 blocks long and 1 block wide. I know - not very big. You would be amazed as to how many booths, rides and just plain fun they can pack in such a small space.

There were pony rides, boiled peanuts, fried peanuts, goats to pet, miniature ponies to pet, bean bags to throw, friends to say hello to, hand crafted everything, tractors to see and so much more. We ran into an old friend that we had not seen in several years. He knew about us wanting to adopt and we just had to introduce the boys to him. He was elated for us!

The boys were antsy because they had spotted those air rides and games. It's the ones that there is constantly air blowing them up to make them bouncy.

There was a box like thing that the boys went into, they could jump and do flips and such.
There was a huge slide like thing.
There was a distance race on a bungy cord.
And the one I liked the best was the rock climbing wall.

Of course they had to try out each and every one of them.

I love the bouncing in air shot there! Cool! The rock climbing however, makes my heart thud to a stop! How did watch that without having a heart attack?

PS. How is Tigger is he feeling better yet?
