I took my kids for a "fun day" (in the spirit of DOING more things and being actively involved in their play) to the Watermelon Festival at Kitty Hawk Kites on Thursday. It was a free community event (although donations were being taken for a childrens' charity). They had a bounce house, watermelon-seed-spitting contests, a pie-eating contest, live music (Milepost 13 band rocks!), a dunk tank...seriously a good time. I dressed my kids and myself in matching tie-dye, which is probably geeky but effective, especially in crowd situations. (We also got tons of compliments on them.)
Here's what we did:
Katie resting on my lap listening to music.
Abbie resting on the porch.
Abbie hiding behind the pirate.
My sweet girly, being pensive.
Micah and Abbie made friends with a baby.
This is Pirate Pete (or so I was told).
"Hey, Mom!" "Yes, Abbie?" "Uhhh... I love you."
Abbie is REALLY afraid of heights, apparently.
