Turkey Creek Festival 2011, here we come! We have lived in our house for about six years now and this year was the first time we ventured to the Turkey Creek Festival at Antioch Park. We had to get an early start to ensure we got good seats for the parade which started right at 11. The parade wasn't the biggest or the most amazing parade we have been to but it entertained Kaden and that was the whole goal, any longer and he probably would have lost interest. We got to see the Merriam Fire dog, Sizzle from the T-Bones, and KC Wolf. His favorite part-besides the sucker-the little blue cars that buzzed around, they may have been loud but he didn't mind one bit.
After the parade we continued up Antioch and entered the park where there were lots of kid activities (most to old for Kaden), arts and crafts, and lots of food. We also got to see a few parrots, one in particularly, up close and personal. Kaden wasn't quite sure what to think about this big white bird and didn't mind saying bye-bye to the birdie. The highlight of the day for Mommy-besides being with my boys which is a given-the funnel cake! And Kaden enjoys them just as much as I do. It was approaching nap time and so it was time to start our mile walk back home, up and down the Antioch hills all while pushing the double stroller, (which wasn't that easy to maneuver unless Kaden wasn't in it)! I could talk about how great of a time we all had but really all you have to do is look at Kaden on our way home, it pretty much sums it all up.
