Err. Something like that.
While we might not have exactly gone wild and crazy, we did stay up late, skip a couple naps, and busy ourselves with the excitement of Summerfest. It was a blast and worth every second of the resulting tiredness and grumpiness this week.
We started off the weekend with the kiddie parade. I have to give props to my mother-in-law here because she was the brains and creative genius behind the whole operation. Me? I just dressed the kids. All her hard work paid off and our little munchkins won 3rd place in their division. This year's theme was "Summer Fun" and our float read "Summer Fun. The 'Starr's' of Toy Story 3." Get it?!?
Lucky for us Aunt Lana walked along for moral support and the occasional lift.
After the kiddie parade we hurried off to J's baseball game, then back home for baths and bed.
The following morning was the marathon parade. We love this parade, but each year it seems to get longer and longer. This year it lasted 2 1/2 hours. The kids did awesome and their excitement was worth every last tractor, politician, and tootsie roll that came our way.
