These are not great photos. I was going to take more on the last day, but instead I was sent home with a fever of 101 degrees.

The Festival was tiring, but fun. The house was PACKED for the Willie Nelson concert! Bob and the gang LOVED it (11th row? Not bad, eh?)!

The second photo is in the front of the Armory, or Main Office Building, looking toward the "Kiddie Corral". It's a tiny version of the very large Midway on the opposite end of the grounds. I tried to capture the fact that on the day I took the pics, it was pretty crowded, but these pics don't do justice. The third photo is of the same thing, just with telephoto.

First Day

Yesterday was the first day of the Festival. The weather was very warm and sunny, and many Senior Citizens showed up.

Grace and Meghan performed at 1:00 pm in the "Show Tent" with the Eisenhower Middle School Chorus.

The first picture is of Meghan and her 6th grade chorus. Meghan is on the very end on the right hand side, second row from the front. Her hair is in a pony tail.

The second picture is of Grace in "Notes Alive!", The 7th and 8th grade show choir. See how she's front and center? That's my girl!

At around 5:00 pm Grace and a few of her friends (and the parent chaperone and the music teacher) showed up at the Festival office and serenaded us with a song. It was wonderful!

Meghan came by the office at around 5:30 pm all sweaty and flushed - she "overdid it" on the rides, if you catch my meaning.

More to come soon!
