2013 Blueberry Festival

Every year we have a tradition of going to the Marshall County Blueberry Festival over Labor Day weekend. The first one we spent together was 12 years ago when we worked a booth for my place of employment way back when. And we have yet to miss one in 12 years! This year was a hot one!!!!  We like to spread our time out over the entire weekend, so none of us get too hot and tired. The first night was Saturday, the kids were able to use a giant hand crank to make their own jump rope, although they are looking forward to the day they can use it as a rope ladder in a tree house.

We also discovered these cool guys walking around, and L insisted on having his picture taken with them.

We capped off the first night with Blueberry shakes and listening to a great folk rock band.

The next day we enjoyed free samples from Chobani...

found Waldo...

rode some of the fun rides...

and watched a fun firework display with family and friends complete with glow in the dark necklaces, glasses, and pendants!

Monday morning is the parade, and sadly this year Adam had to work. So the kids and I packed some snacks and headed down to watch it.

Overall it was a fantastic weekend, and we are already looking forward to next year!
