‘Festing and tomorrow’s Flash!

Last night we hit up Rochesterfest for their family fun night.


See this innocent face? Clueless about the crowds & greasy foods about to come his way!


It wasn’t long before he had a stroller tray full of calorie packed fish & chips. It was delish!


I hesitated about putting him on this ride. Yes, it went super slow…but he has a tendency to just get down/jump off things without warning.

But, it was a rare moment of stillness…he was enthralled with the ride. He sat perfectly still the entire time, only moving his head to smile at his Daddy :)


We had to take a break from the crowds. A bit overwhelming for him…although from his viewpoint I can see why! All he could see was a bunch of butts in front of him!


Almost wish I had his fireman’s hat with us for this part. We stood in line for 15 minutes to stand with a fire fighter and put out a (pretend) fire. He was super interested in it from afar, but was scared of it once we got closer!


Have firemen always been 12 years old?

After this. All hell broke loose. Gavin had enough of the food, the people, and everything and anything about Rochesterfest. He had a total meltdown and it was time. to. leave.

Of course, in the car, he acted like nothing had been wrong and was back to his usual, happy self. And fully enjoyed playing with a balloon the entire way home.

After his tantrum downtown, I figured he’d be ready to crash by the time we got home. 

I know, I know. It was wishful thinking.

Luckily, the weather was gorgeous and we spent the last remaining hours of sunlight outside.

Did you notice his shirt? I take full responsibility for the US Soccer Team’s win yesterday. Gav’s outfit gave them good luck! :)

And for tomorrow’s Flash Me! Friday. The room where you, and whomever you live with, like to put your feet up, relax, and hang out.

Maybe it’s your living room? Your rec room? A bonus room? Your bedroom?

Whatever it is…give us a flash!
