Father's Day

The kids and I took Greg to a downtown art festival to celebrate Father's Day. Before leaving church to go to the festival, Greg got teased a little about it, which concerned me a bit...until we got there. The first thing we came across was a vendor giving out free sample bowls of cereal with milk. Greg's two favorite things!! Free and cereal!

There were several other free food samples (Sophie's enjoying some yogurt below), and fun things for kids to do.

Here, Sophie's getting to do some Jackson Pollack painting (splattering) on a big white canvas on the ground. Amazingly, she did not get paint on her dress (it was washable anyway), but both she and Greg got some green freckles from a kid on the other side who was a little wild with his brush.

We brought a blanket and found a nice shady spot to have a picnic of a corndog, pork chop on a stick, roasted corn on the cob and a chicken pita.

After that we also had a chocolate malt which even Owen got to enjoy. He would get upset in between bites if Greg was a little slow to get some to him. You can see he's helping the spoon along below.

After lunch we went down to take a closer look at the river. The crowds were getting heavier by then, so Greg was carrying Sophie part of the way. She kept saying, "I'm not tired," while looking like this...

After naptime, we gave Greg his card and presents. Sophie was pointing out the "spider web" and "skunk tail" she had drawn on the card.
And after supper we gave Greg the cookie we'd made for him on Saturday and hidden in the oven until Sunday. Sophie helped to measure the ingredients, pat the cookie out on the stone and decorate it with chocolate chips. She was also to have kept it a secret, but she told Greg about it the second he came home on Saturday. Oh well, it still tasted really good!!
