Summer Fun Fest #microblogmondays

2014 Summer Fun Fest

On June 29th, we took the trio to Oglesby’s Summer Fun Fest.  The weekend of Summer Fest is always the garage sale weekend and this is the second year in a row that Laura and I have manned a garage sale at my house and followed up with a trip to the carnival to spend some of the cash we earned.  It seems to be part of my garage sale routine! As always, the kids were hot but had a great time riding the rides and seeing their friends.  Bo won his first living fish — Johnny — who promptly died a few days later (fittingly, Bo’s first stuffed fish was won at the carnival in 2012).  We’ve been through numerous fish since then and can’t seem to keep them alive.  Our latest batch, Tiger, Caramel, and Molly all died last weekend.
