Lehman’s held their Summer Celebration this weekend. It was perfect timing because Jeremy was out of town on Saturday, and we needed something to do. The girls had a great time, as always.
We began with riding horses. Madison went first on Hank. Madison rode again. I think, by the time we headed home, they had each had four free rides!
Ellie went second – yep, you heard me right… Ellie rode a horse! (Last year, she adamantly refused.) She rode both Olaf and Hank.
We headed inside for face painting. While we waited, we made flower dolls, sample homemade ice cream and toppings, and locally made granola. We discussed what each one wanted on her face as well. Madison said flowers in the end (we had to narrow down her selection quite a bit).
Ellie said rainbows and butterflies.
The artists did a great job! I am always so impressed with their creativity and their kindness when listening to what the kids want.
We also rolled pretzels (well, play-doh), listened to Honeytown, munched on samples of jam, crunched on popcorn, indulged in cotton candy (pink and blue), and hung out with the animals… again. Madison tried to get near a pig, but they were a little jumpy. They both (yes, Ellie, too) petted the bunnies that a worker held. And Madison enjoyed petting this donkey.
I think we were there for two hours. It was great. We had lunch, naps, and then went to Chuck and Patti’s house for some swimming before supper. It was a good day.
We have two more fun, free days coming up this week. It is almost like we live in a big city with all the action around here!
