What a great week we’ve had! We went to Blandford’s story hour on Thursday and had an insect safari. The kids all got nets and learned how to catch (and release of course; this is the Nature Center…) insects and learned a little about them.
We also took a great family walk the newly completed section of the Plaster Creek Trail. Everyone went, including the dog! We can’t wait for it to be finished since we have some avid bikers in the family, as I mentioned earlier this week.
Yesterday we went to the National Baby Food Festival in Fremont. I can hardly believe it, but it is our fourth year in attendance. Among the many other activities, there is a midway with carnival rides. A.P. has been enchanted with one particular ride since he was 11 months old. I kid you not. He has been into things that ‘go’ since day one. This year he was finally tall enough to ride “The Dragon.” It’s a kiddie roller coaster. He liked it so much I let him ride it twice. I tried to get pictures, but I couldn’t time it right so I have some awesome pictures of the kids in the seat in front of him, and even better ones of the kids behind him. Oh well!
Here is a list of things going on in and around town next week. Please make sure to call ahead or check the website as things can change. Some events require pre-registration.
