9/30: Haiti’s Hope Festival

Our church hosted a wonderful 5k run and festival this weekend, and it was a blast!  Even the thunderstorms that were predicted stayed away (though the thermostat climbed steadily to the upper 80s!).

Hydration, of course, was vital (along with flexibility, apparently!):

Jim and our neighbor Stephen entered the corn hole tournament:

and ended up taking first place (and the $100 prize!):

Seth was just glad there was popcorn!

The heat wore Seth out enough that he was able to stand still for Miss Amy to paint a John Deere on his cheek:

We took a break from the festivities for lunch at Firehouse Subs (a first for me).  Eh.  I’d rather have something from Jersey Mike’s or Which Wich, but Erin seemed to love the dalmation tabletop and firehat!

More time in the bounce houses, and cheering on our buddy Charlie at his baseball game rounded out the day.

The little ones are fast asleep, worn out by a full day in the sun; and Jim is down the street, defending his corn hole title with Stephen.  I’m off to fix an ice cream cone, and wait for the washer cycle to finish.  (Oh, yes, indeed, I am living it up this Saturday night!)

I hope you all have had as wonderful and enjoyable a weekend as we have!
