Rivers and Spires Festival 2009~

Every year in April the streets of downtown fill with excitement
with FREE entertainment and fun for the whole family!
This was 'Lyza Jane's first year partaking in the fun...
and boy did we ALL have lots of fun!!
The streets were packed on this cloudy but warm day~
We got to see a FREE clown show~
Hayden got to be velcroed to a wall called the 'Spiders Web'
I know this guy got a workout having to bounce all the
kiddos on that wall though...geez!
See ya later Hayden!!
I'll be back later, hope you stick around~
It was getting hot, so we took an Italian Ice break under this pretty tree~
(I love Italian Ice...soo yummy!)
Mmmm, so refreshing!!

You have a BLUE TONGUE!!
Meeting some new friends at the festival~

Dancing with the froggy!
Riding the train .... choo choo!

Hayden made a Mr. Potato Head Face~
Standing in line for a jumpy dragon maze~
Jumpy's are soo much fun!
Yippee look at me!
Hayden climbing the SURVIVOR jumpy~
This titantic ship was awesome...mommy even got to slide down it~
(It was pretty high up there)
'Lyza in Toddler Town jumpy area~


Getting our face painted...isnt it a absolute must at a festival!
A Daisy for my Daisy-Girl!
Hayden stood in this line for over an HOUR~
(more like Mommy did)
just to get his face painted by this nice lady who did full faces!
Can you guess what he picked ?
The day went by soo fast...we could have literally spent all day and night there!
(I had previous engagements to attend the La Boheme Opera that
evening though in Nashville so I couldnt enjoy the whole hoo!)
But the kids ate hotdogs, french fries & sweet tea for lunch and
got to see a parade with Chewy Chewbacca from Star Wars too at the festival!
It was a fun-filled day and everything was absolutely FREE
except the food!! Gotta love Free FUN!!
