Teapot Festival Block Party

The time has rolled around again for our town's annual "Teapot Festival". The festival lasts the whole week, and there are lots of fun activities all week long. Some of them we don't necessarily attend, but we have our family favorites. One of those is the Block Party. It is a lot of fun, and the kids enjoy all the "stuff". Each year, the kids at their school compete ahead of time in the Speed Stackers Cup Stack competition. The top student times in each grade take part in a demonstration at the block party. Parker finished 3rd in his grade, so he got to demonstrate. Here he is (love the tongue sticking out) concentrating very hard in front of his audience. He said he actually beat his fastest time last night!!!Kinlee enjoyed the jumpers and pony rides. Parker opted out of the hand stamp for the jumpers and rides, because he will be running in the Teapot Trot with Mark later this week - when everything costs money, you have to choose sometimes!!! Anyway, Kinlee met up with her friend from school, and they had a great time playing together. It is hard to get good pictures on those slides, but I managed to get a couple.
Later this week, Mark and Parker will run in the Teapot Trot, and Kinlee will be in the Teapot Festival parade with Girl Scouts. I am sure (if the rain holds off and it all actually takes place) that I will have lots of fun pictures to post!!!
