SetonFest 2009 (Day #1)

Ben, Maggie, and Quinn Sweeny really enjoyed the rides. Unfortunately, Molly Sweeny was too scared to do some of the "big kid" rides with the other three.

Daring Ben was eager to hop on the ferris wheel. Maggie thought it would be a good time. However, she SCREAMED and clung to me the entire time we were on it!

One of the many family pictures we attempted. Since we had matching festival shirts, I really wanted to get a great family picture. The kids were less than cooperative. I'm surprised Brian remains married to me after all the times I made him pose!
Playing games and doing crafts in the kids tent.
Ending Day #1 with the fireworks display and a huge sno-cone to share.

Only Once!

Unfortunately, we had to attend a funeral Mass today.
The kids, however, behaved really well. So, I told them that we could buy lollipops.
Ben informed me that lollipops are NOT the round balls on top of sticks. He said a REAL lollipop would have to be rainbow-colored, and it must also be a flat circle, not a ball.
Brian had the ingenious idea to try Cracker Barrel, knowing that they carry all sorts of candy. And, of course, they had the lollipops!

I told the kids that these were the kind of treats you only get once in a lifetime.
(We don't want to make a practice of buying these every time they exhibit good bahavior!)
