Festival time!!!

Today we went to the festival here in town. It is thousands of people, crafts, games and lots of food. It is such a fun time of the year. It was rainy but we stayed and played anyway...that is until about 4 o'clock when they got out the bullhorns and police intercoms and announce that the park was closing due to severe weather warnings! It was actually kind of scary. I have been going for about 20 years and that has never happened. There were tornado and hail warnings.
Until that point, we did have a great time though. Yummy food, lots of friends...did I mention that Dena knows EVERYONE?! I basically could just stand still while tons of people (and polititians, funny) came to chat with her. I got to meet lots of people. We rode the fun train tram, for the second day in a row. Did I forget to mention that we went yesterday too? It is definately a three day affair. I brought home some super cute monkey bows, I'm sure you will see them soon.

How fun but yes I bet that was a little scary when the alarms went off.
I'm shocked and can hardly believe that Dena knows so many people-smiles!
