Strawberry Festival


We have been on the go a lot lately. I was sure that things would slow down after Christmas, but it's been just as busy if not more. We have traveled down to Plant City every weekend this year but 4, and one of those we went over to Panama City. Needless to say, I'm a bit behind on the blogging.
Over Gary's spring break we went down to the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. We went on two different days and had such a good time. On Monday they had the lamb show. Amanda wanted the kids to all come up, she helps with the show. they have a pee-wee showmanship catagory where 3-5 year olds can practice showing someone else's lamb in the show. So, we carried Brystal up there to meet James and Heather. Brystal showed a black, short legged lamb, and did great. She loved it. Britt mostly just loved petting all the sheep. After the sheep we walked around and ate with James and Heather and the kids had a good time playing with each other. Then they watched our two kids while we went into the Clint Black concert. We had a great time.
We also went back on Wednesday to see the steer show. It was really interesting. I hadn't been to one before, and would have liked to have seen the auction too, but maybe next year. I could have kicked myself for failing to bring along the camera that night, because Britt was in rare form. There was a roller coaster right outside of the steer tent and as the cars would climb higher and higher and he would get more and more excited until he reached fever pitch, and then down they would plunge and he would squeal with delight. I would ask him, "Are you watching? Are you watching?" Even about the 20th time we sat there watching he was still just as delighted. It's a moment I hope I never forget.

Hope things settle down for you soon... Joshua really liked that same roller coaster too. It was so neat to watch things through his eyes, he was just amazed by the lights and sounds and rides... I am sure Britt was too!
