Old Settlers Days
Posted on August 17 2010
Every year we go to Brimfield for Old Settlers Days. There was a parade, rides, games, lawn mower races, food...lots of food, and fun.
Slone rode on the parade float with the church.
Lexi got lots of candy and shared the "big boy candy" with my boys, since Slone couldn't catch any because he was on the float.
Max scarfed down a popsicle that were passed out at the parade.
Matt had to compete in the lawn mower races...He got third and won two bucks. Believe me, he is still talking about it and how he would've won...blah, blah, blah. I seriously have to tune him out. Does he not realize that it doesn't matter and first only won like five dollars?
We were walking back after the races and the boys wanted to ride on the ferris wheel. I'm not sure that they have ridden on a big one. We bought some tickets and got on. Bo was tense and couldn't hardly stand it at first. I have to admit, I didn't really like it either...Am I getting old? All I could think about was how rickety it was.
Here's his face during the ride.
We had to hold hands...he insisted.
The view from the top of the ferris wheel.
Since this week Slone starts school, it was a good way to say so long to summertime.
