Last weekend we took the kids to the Bethlehem Blueberry Festival and although it was scorching hot, the kids had a lot of fun!
They rode a horse powered carousel with big bench sized swinging seats.
After the dizzinesss wore off, we made our way to the mini petting zoo where we attempted to feed the goats.
They were a little agressive and Reagan was a timid at first. Then she felt one of them lick her little hand and she giggled with delight! It was a good thing they had hand sanitizing stations. We certainly needed them by the time we were done:)
All week long, Sarah had been talking about the festival.
She remembered our trip from last year and said that she could not wait to have her face painted again and she also wanted to make another piece of sand art for her bedroom. You can click HERE to see last year's post. It is amazing how much Sarah has changed in a year!
Even though there were about 20 different options, she picked the same exact thing as last year. A purple unicorn.
We made our way to the Sand Art stand and we found out they changed things up for this year! It was now "Sandy Candy" Edible Sand Art! Sarah nearly screamed out loud when she realized that not only could she make something, she could eat it too!
Each color of sand was a different flavor.
You could pick a tube or a necklace that was shaped like an ice cream cone and then you began filling it with the Sandy Candy of your choice. Surprisingly, the girls both chose the tube instead of the necklace. Probably because it held more candy:)
Reagan needed a little help from Nick, because the bottles were almost as big as her. Sarah was EXTREMELY serious about her layering method. She definitely had a system and was not going to pick a color for her tube without doing a taste test first.
If you are at a local fair or festival, you will have to see if they have one of these Sandy Candy stands. It was definitely a hit with the kids!
After the girls were done making their sand art, we made our way to the food area and eventually back home. It was too hot to be out there any longer than we already were. You can see how flushed and sweaty the girls were getting just sitting there in the shade.
We have been super busy around here. We have done some fun day trips and activities with the kids, but I am a little backed up with photos and posts. I am hoping to get everything caught up soon. I still have beach photos to go through. I wish there were more hours in the day, I could certainly use them:)
I also wanted to say thank you for all the encouraging comments and emails in regards to Monday's post. It made me feel so much better to hear how many other families have dealt with this and have had such positive outcomes as a result of early intervention. I will keep everyone posted as we go down this path.
~Have a Wonderful Wednesday~
