Lapeer Days Festival

This weekend Trina & I took the kids to the Lapeer Days Festival. Something that was an annual family event during our childhood. The kids had lots of fun, especially Isaac. This was totally Isaac's environment. He loves the loud music, the hyped up atmosphere and crazy rides. The kids were able to get their faces painted by Wowie the Clown. Isaac chose a scarey monster face (after I finally convinced him not to go with a red devil face).

Bella (with my assistance) chose something extra girly- a butterfly!

We were also able to stop in and visit with Grandma and Grandpa who were working at the EMS station. The kids had fun with Andy the Ambulance and Sparky the Firehouse Dog (for those pictures you can view the Anderson Family Blog or the Mapley Family Blog).

Right now Isaac wants to be a police man when he grows up (along with a super hero and a dad). He also would like to have a police man birthday party next month. We were excited to capture this cute photo with a local law enforcement member.

Bella was excited that she could ride so many rides. Here she enjoyed the merry go round with Aunt Trina and Chloe.

Isaac on the otherhand prefers rides that go fast and are crazy. As you can see Tatum wasn't enjoying the ride near as much as Isaac. He kept smiling, laughing, and screaming with joy. He was in heaven!

Isaac & Bella rode on a little truck ride with Tatum and Chloe. Slow ride- but still fun

This was Bella's first time on a horse. At first she wasn't so sure and didn't want to get on. Once I had her pet the horse and talk to it she was okay and loved the ride so much she refused to get off at the end. Her horses name was Peanut.

Isaac was able to ride the biggest horse there. His horse was named Ginger. Overall we had a great time and look forward to going back again next year. If you'd like to see more pictures (my computer is too slow to upload lots) then you can view them at Trina's blog (Anderson Family) or the Mapley Family blog. Enjoy!

I also LOVE the facepainting. It really is the best facepainting I have ever seen.
