Our 1st Brownfield Day!

It all started with a parade, that happens to begin right at our house. It travels down Main St. to the rec center.  This was definitely a fun community event. We stood outside and watched the parade as the driver proceeded to throw candy to the kids, so much candy!!!!!

It was really awesome for the kids to see so many people from their own community coming together in one place.  We wondered what the purpose of Brownfield Day was when one man said, “If they didn’t do a day like this none of us would take the time to talk to one another”.  I think it was just a fun time to get together and celebrate the community.

My favorite thing was standing at our house and looking down Main St and feeling such a sense of community. We didn’t feel this back in CA.  It was pretty cool.


Once we went down to the rec center the fun began, at least for the boys.  They had a blast in this inflatable playground that was set up.

This face is priceless! Jaxxon loved the slide.
I love how daring these kids are. I would have been scared of hitting my nose.
And exhaustion sets in…
That second jump seemed the hardest, balancing on a wobbly ball to jump tot he next wobbly ball.
No part of this looks fun to me!

We took a break for a bit from this madness and the kids had some food. Lincoln went straight for a strawberry shortcake and Jaxxon for a hot dog. He was a bit taken back by the fact that it was pink, even though they are called red.  He had me peel off the casing, but otherwise was pretty pleased with the hot dog.  You got me happy with No by-products, NO fillers and NO artificial flavors.

We ended with a try at the dunk tank, dunk a volunteer fireman!


And he got him. Good shot Lincoln.

Looking forward to next year, it was a ton of fun!

Circus Time

Yesterday we went to the Zerbini Family Circus.  And we had a blast! It all started out with camel rides, Lincoln was having a hard time because he was falling behind the hump, but he said it was awesome to ride a camel.

This was a family first. Neither of the boys had been to a circus before, and can you believe Mike had never been either.  We all think what we do in life is hard work, and I am sure 99% of us actually do work hard. Have you seen what happens at a circus? This family sets up, performs, breaks down, packs up and drives to a new town on a daily basis! And what work it is to put on a circus, everyone has about 100 different jobs to do. The kids work too, and they are amazing! It was great for our boys to see kids their own age working stands and performing.

Juggling. I have tried to juggle for years, I simply cannot get the hang of it. These jugglers were amazing. A family of three and boy could they juggle.

The kids were most amazed with the flying trapeze. Jaxx kept asking, “how is everyone so talented?” I had the most enjoyment just watching their faces. The laughter and the awe, it was amazing.  They had their first funnel cake, first circus and first camel ride.  Summer has been loads of fun so far.

So from our family to yours, go have some fun and enjoy whatever it is you decide to do.
