Show Low Days!
We bit the bullet and finally took the kids to the ubercrowded Show Low Days festival and car show.
Today was the last day and we JUST made it to see all the cars before the judging was over.
We got overpriced cheeseburgers and GIANT ice cream cones and kettle corn (which I hate but accidentally ate a few pieces of anyway!). I bought a bar of handmade soap and a fresh squeezed cup of lemonade from a guy inside a giant lemon. Just like on "Sixteen"!
Of course we walked around all the cars and picked out our favorites.
Dylan kept saying "I want to buy THAT one!" Sadly, we didn't have $18,000 on the spot. Dang!
There was a little petting zoo with cute animals, but they charged $5 a kid to pet some pygmy goats. No thanks! Instead our kids bounced in the bounce house for a buck a piece then took a train ride for $4 a pop. Highway robbery? Sure. But they had fun!
After we tired of walking around the booths and cars and I couldn't take smelling that kettle corn stand for one more second we took the kids up to the baseball diamond and let them run free. A GREAT way to tire them out PLUS it's all fenced and contained. Awesome!
