Stick Em' Up

This last Saturday we packed up our posse and headed over to Glendale for the Wild Western Festival. Now maybe it's just because my expectations were in the dirt or maybe I've just been that bored, but, I'm happy to say it was a lot of fun.

There were a couple of shows and every time a volunteer was needed, guess who volunteered...

Dan and Ben decided to not be yellow bellies and to volunteer to stand there holding a piece of crate paper while the guy attempted to snap the paper with a whip (dentists don't really need fingers anyway). Luckily no appendages were lost but I think Rayce was inspired to volunteer for the next demonstration.

Rayce was told his job was to stand there looking cute, at which point he immediately went into his super model smile winning the crowd over. I don't know where this kid came from, but he is a little ham. The cowboy then circled him with the lasso, Rayce thought he was pretty cool and the cowboy gave him a bullet as a souvenir.

Don't worry Avie had a lot of fun also,

She was a little jumpy and irritable with the noise of the gunshots, but she loved the horses! Danielle captured this happy moment on camera.

I can easily say we would go back again, the kids had a great time and although it was still a tad hot, it felt great to get out of the house and be outside.

Oh, my word! Avie's face looks just like Jake at Disneyland! Kids these days--you just can't please them. You guys do such fun stuff-wish we lived a little closer so you could plan our social calendar :)
