Before Saturday, I’d not been to the Chiefland Watermelon festival in years. But, since we were in town this weekend with no plans, we decided to meet up with the crew to watch the parade.
Allie brought along her cousin, Gus. Gus and AB are really funny because when they get around each other they’re both SO shy!
We sat on the curb and watched as all the parade entries went by. One of the things I love most about being from a small county and a big family is that you can’t go anywhere without running into people you know, and usually at least a couple of cousins. Saturday didn’t disappoint and we enjoyed waving and seeing lots of people we knew and even saw a few cousins. :)
The kids had a big time watching the parade and gathering candy.
After the heat of the parade, we decided a swim at Blue Run would feel so good! Annabelle was excited that Allie Claire could come down, too!
Blue Run is c-c-c-c-cold water, but so refreshing! It always takes me a while to make myself jump in. From the look on my girl’s face, she’s going to be like her momma.
The REALLY funny thing is that I can’t handle the grass that grows on some parts of the river. It scares the daylights out of me. I don’t like the way it feels and I am terrified there’s snakes and gators and turtles and who knows what else hiding in it. I LOVE the nice clear sandy spots though. Turns out AB is isn’t a fan of the grass either. We laughed so hard when she was swimming with her Daddy and looked down and saw that they were over the grass (even though it was several feet below her and she couldn’t feel it and she started yelling, “oh no! oh no! gass, gass, no gass!” DW was cringing wondering how on earth he’ll deal with two of us at the river. :) Ha…
It was such a fun Saturday!
