Rivers & Spires Festival 2010~

This is one of my favorite festivals to go have some FREE fun!
The Rivers & Spires Festival ROCKS!
Every April I have my calendar marked way ahead and plan what
night I'm going to take my kids and enjoy the sights, sounds and
wonderful FOOD the festival has to offer.
I'm soo thankful to the city of Clarksville for putting on such a
spectacular FREE event for the public...thank-you!
Here are some of the pics we took while enjoying the night of festivities:
Hayden won a free Ice cream coupon from spinning
the ChickFilA wheel of fortune...
here he is posing with the COW mascot~
Trying to loop some steer horns~

My best friend Heather & her daughter Meara met us up later at the

festival to have some we are~ all smiles to see each other!

Hayden sliding down the titanic slide...
its really high once you get up there!

Hayden milking the pretend cow~
We got our face painted with a red snake this year~
He thought it was cool it went all around his face.
Hayden with his friend Meara modeling their face paintings~
Planting a pumpkin seed at one of the fun stations~
(we took it home and transported it to our garden so
hopefully we have have a pumpkin come October!)
Playing a reading musical cake walk type game at this station~
(Its really great how the community all comes out to participate)
They won a free book of choice from the reading association
which was really nice and something we will use!!
Decorating a crown hat at another fun station~
Modeling the completed crowns and playing another duck pond game
trying to win more prizes!!
( I love my sons crown...he is such a boy and just slapped some things
on the crown like with no theme or thought, but he was happy...
Meara his friend...really took a long time with much thought and
theme to hers and it was very pretty too!
This definitely shows the differences in the sexes at a young age...
I thought it was cute both their crowns matched their personality! )
After the funnel cakes and jumpy inflatables,
the crafts and the free candy,
After the free loot was completely
gathered and everything was mostly played on...
we all went for a late dinner over to Wendys.
It was a very fun and ALMOST totally free evening!
Thank-you to my best friend Heather for making a date with us,
(and sharing her funnel cake...well at least a bite...hee hee JK)
Thank-you also to the city for putting on another great year of FREE FUN!!
It was a BLAST!!!

Hayden was passed out after 5 mins of the car ride home!
I took this pic when we got in our driveway...
I thought it showed how hard he played that night,
but he had a ton of fun! ;-)
Thanks again Rivers & Spires Festival for another wonderful year!
