In Training

It's here, the best time of the year, festival season.
Beginning with Grand Old Day, a street festival here in Saint Paul, and concluding with The Minnesota State Fair it's a season jam-packed with lots of walking, parades, food and people watching.
We had perfect weather for Grand Old Day today. Blue Skies, 75 degrees and a slight breeze.

 The bouncing club threw a lady into the air,


 There were dancers and dragons




 Even a wild Eldest child handing out candy with her best friend.
I like to think of Grand Old Day as a good training ground for this season of festivals, as well as an assessment tool to see how much walking a 4, 10 and 12 year old can really accomplish in a morning.
We had a good showing from the 12 and 4, but the 10 needs some work. We need to be in top shape by the time The Fair comes around in August.
