Busy, busy weekend

We had a big weekend! I was ambitious and my legs are STILL a little sore.

We ran errands most of the day on Friday, and then dropped Little Elvis off at a friend's house for a couple of hours in the evening. He had a blast with his friend, and even ate 2 hot dogs for supper! The other mom said he did a great job, and he seemed to have a big time with his friend.
On Saturday, we went two different festivals. In the morning, we went to one held by a church. They had a firetruck, two police cars, an army SUV, two bouncy houses, a playground, face painter, balloon sculptor, bands, and a little area where kids could "fish" for prizes with a fishing pole.

There also happened to be a church van parked in the area. Guess where we spent just about all of our time? The church van.

Little Elvis is really into vans these days.

He refused to go near the fire truck, even though the firefighters tried to get his attention.

He did play a little with the police cars, but one of the officers scared him.

Right before we left, he allowed himself to be put in the driver's seat of the Army vehicle.

He had fun, but that van was where he had the best time.

We headed to the other festival that afternoon -- after practically no nap. (We didn't think the lawnmower would wake him up. It did.)

This festival was for my moms group. There was a nice playground, a smaller bouncy house, fire truck and a face painter. At first, little sleepy boy only wanted to go back to the parking lot.

It took him about 30 minutes and a small bag of M&Ms to warm up to the idea of another festival. But once he did, he had a great time.

There was a firetruck at this one as well, and they let him sit in the driver's seat and examine the back portion where the other firefighters sit.

We spent quite a while at the firetruck.

He also had a great time doing some of the other events.

We were all exhausted once we got home, but it was a very fun weekend. Not so sure I'll plan so much for us in the future, though.

Unfortunately, we were only going to a funeral visitation thing. Didn't think it'd be appropriate to bring a hyper 2-year-old.

Sounds like Little E had lots of fun!

And by the way Target had some Cars shoes kind of like crocs that he might like. My son loves them because he can put them on by himself.

I'll have to look for those shoes, Lisa. Little Elvis currently sports velcro Cars sneaks from Wal-Mart, but he can only take those off, not put them on.

Looks like tons of fun! I love it that Little Elvis can have so much fun looking at vehicles in parking lots. Easy entertainment!
