Free and Fun. That's My Kinda Party!

Our little town is growing and I really love some of the things they do. Yesterday was our 2nd Annual Town Center Festival. They had four bounce house type things, pony rides, a petting zoo, train rides, games, contests, rock climbing, sumo wrestling, pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, snow cones, chips, sodas.....plus more. And EVERYTHING was free. Oh yeah! My parents, aunt and uncle briefly came also. It was a fun evening! The kids went home dirty and exhausted.

This is Elayna at the petting zoo, petting a goat (one of my favorite animals!).

And, since I'm being wordful anyway, I'm going to give a few shout-outs.
First of all, my friend at Tiaras & Tantrums wrote an excellent post about Blog Manners.
It's a great read!
Also, I have some old friends who are new(ish) bloggers and I wanted to invite you to check out their bloggy homes. Go Deep in the Heart of Texas, bow at The Queen's New Throne (oh, how I love all that purple!!), and then you can review some Books, Bags and Bon Jovi. And of course, check out more WordFUL Wednesday posts at Seven Clown Circus!
We're trying to plan a last minute trip to St Augustine for this event this weekend. Wish me luck! It looks like a blast.
Leave me some of your words this Wednesday! ;o)

The festival sounds like a kid's dream. What fun. They have goats at one of the local parks, for a dollar you can feed them out of a paper cup. Fun if you don't mind hoof prints on your forehead. lol. Happy Wednesday.
