Small Town Celebration

Our tiny town had it’s annual festival Saturday.

We went and had a very good time.

Wee One was showing off turtles he caught for the turtle race to his friends. He let the little boy, Nick (on the right in the photo) race the bigger turtle. Nick didnt have a racing turtle.


Son #1 stepped in and gave Wee One a hand when the turtle races started. Wee One’s turtle came in dead last but he didnt care, he had a blast racing.


Son #1 dunked our tiny town’s reserve police officer. Officer BB is a hoot.

After the parade, games, and fish fry were finished-we listened to some live music played by a group of locals who go together to share some tunes with us. Then, we came home for a nap and a swim.

The street dance went on as scheduled despite the thunderstorm that passed thru.

I think I’d better go make another pot of coffee, it’s Monday already.

  1. Hey there ! What great fun ! ( and pics) Life should be like the turtle race…you get to the end in your own good time, and enjoy yourself in the interim.
    Hell, that didn’t come out right !

  2. Aniin BG, sounds like a blast!

  3. The wholesome, nerdy fun of small town celebrations cannot be beat. Love it.
    Started our easy set up pool this weekend. It’s draining as we speak. God, I wish my man would listen to me, but no….” this is where it should go ” he says….. to be continued on my blog, when I can write without cursing….

  4. I can smell the funnel cakes from here. Please tell me you did this Infidel proud and gorged yourself on elephant ears, funnel cakes, and some sausage on a stick.

  5. That sounds like a lot of fun!

    Did he catch the turtles in your yard? If so, your yard sounds about like mine!! All kinds of critters in mine, some good and some not so good!! Wee One looks so cute with the other boys. They referred to some one as “WeeOne” on the news last night and my teen daughter is like, WeeOne, did you hear that???!! 😉

    What fun! I grew up in a town of about 400 people and we had great celebrations, parades and picnics. I never raced turtles though but it sounds like fun. Wee One is soooooo cute! That’s nice that he wasn’t upset about coming in dead last! One of my horses has laminitis as of today. I am just tearing my hair out trying to figure out what did it this time. He hurts so bad, even with the banemine so tonight we tried bute. I’ve been bawling like a baby off and on all day……sigh….
