Round Rock Fall Festival

019One of the cool things about our town is it’s still small enough that it has cool festivals and events from time to time.

 

Like this chalk art festival designed to raise money for a local foster home.

Of course the down side of that one was it led to hands like this……  And very dirty clothes.

But, back to the Fall Festival.  We headed down there a little early to help set up the diaper changing station for our MOPS group.  Actually we got there later than intended and it was mostly set up.  But, the kids had fun helping me put up the signs.

It’s run by the local parks and recreation department, so you get a lot of “tough” looking guys who are in charge of the games.

 

I think it’s kind of fun to see these guys interacting with the kids, and you can tell they love doing this.

I have a lot of fun looking at the different games and thinking about how I might make it at home.

 

I know, that’s shocking, shocking I say.

The kids have fun collecting an inordinately large amount of candy and random little toys.  They spend the next few days on a sugar high as they slowly eat their way through the candy.

 

It was super duper fun, and we had a blast as you can imagine!

 

I’m linking this up to Geography/History linky over at Children Grow, Children Explore, Children Learn because in a way this is about geography, it’s about finding cool things going on at the place you live.

  1. That sounds like fun. What a neat idea for a festival. I can't wait to see the games you reinvent at home!!!

    I wish there were diaper changing stations at events in our town when I had kids in diapers. How nice!!!

  2. Fun! It is good sometimes being from a small town, especially if everyone is friendly. Since I live where I grew up it seems small. I do the same thing with the games, seeing how I can make it when we are at events. Thank you for sharing.
