Georgetown Music Festival

This weekend Will and I went to the Georgetown Music Festival. We met up with Antonella and Casey and some other friends there too. There was lots of music, art and other random stuff.

Some lady had her poor dogs dressed up. I felt bad for them but let Will pet them anyway. Will played a few carnival games that they had there. He won a couple normal things like a plastic bug and a little dinosaur that grows when you put it in water... and he always won a flask!?! Who gives a kid a flask! He asked what it was and I told him he could use it for juice. Uhhhh....
Casey and Will spotted a funky little spot that sold cookies, so we bought some cookies, each one about the size of Will's (very large) head.

I thought this little musical family was cute, but I hope they dont always dress like that.
We took a little rest and people watched. Can you tell from Caseys face that there was some interesting people watching? Also notice how his camera is pointed out, discreetly taking pictures of random people. lol.
Will had a great time and didn't even complain about having to walk around so much.
This is Maddie. Will has a big crush on her. She is Antonella's niece.

Ryan, Antonella's brother-in-law was preforming at the festival, which is the main reason why we went. His show was great, and we enjoyed being right up front by the stage.
Will loved it and totally danced and grooved to the music! I dont know if Will realized how cool it was since he just thinks of Ryan as Maddies dad.
Sorry the pictures are blurry, they are from my phone. Love this one though. Will's got his hands up to the music and Ryan is right above him.
We had a great time, and by the time I pulled out of the parking lot Will was already out. He was a great sport about the long day and had a blast.

Preschool Graduation

Preschool graduation didn't go quite like we hoped it would. All was wonderful... except for the weather. It was very, very rainy. The graduation was supposed to be an outside ceremony followed by a barbecue, but of course there were some last minute changes. For the ceremony we were still mostly outside. The kids were under a breeze way, but the parents were to be standing in the grass. Some canopies were set up to protect us from the rain but there wasn't enough room for everyone, so some of us were under umbrellas. It was cold and wet, but the kids didn't seem to mind. Will was so happy and proud and was constantly smiling. After the kids sang some songs and the diplomas were handed out we all headed for shelter inside the preschool where the kids played for a bit and we had some snacks. The teachers had made a great photo album as a gift for each of the kids. Each childs photo album had pictures of them from throughout the school year. Will will miss his friends over the summer break, but he'll be back to the same school next year.
