Really, This Is The Last Of The Summer Pictures (maybe)

On Labor Day weekend, we decided to hit one of the local festivals. We've lived in our town for over seven years and this is the first time we attended this particular festival. It was pretty entertaining.

Sarah LOVED the swing ride. In fact, she rode it twice.

Here comes Abby
Third time's a charm for the carousel. Sarah finally relaxed and had a good time.
Billy rode the spinning ride with the girls, NOT ME!! They had fun posing for pics before the ride started.
Once the ride started, I barely saw them they were spinning so fast! They all loved it!
Enjoying a smoothie before the parade started.
Abby resting in the stroller with the prize she won at one of the games... a gold fish. I am still waiting for him to die, but he has proved himself hardy. We named him "Phineas" or "Finny" for short.
Here comes the marching band in the parade!
The Festival Court of Princesses and the Queen The Melon Man... don't ask. Just bizarre!
After all the fun of the festival, we took Sarah home for her nap. Later we went for a bike ride and ended the evening by setting up a tent in the backyard... and sleeping all night in it. How fun! But, I woke up with a sore throat. Yuck.

All in all, a great way to end the summer.
