date festival

a couple of weeks ago we had a playgroup at the annual date festival. it lasts about 8-10 days, various carnival rides and games, plus a lot of animals for competitions (cows and pigs mostly), a petting zoo and various bands that play each night. this year the big ones (for me anyway) were gin blossoms and loverboy! but no, i didn't go to them. i've heard that the shows just aren't worth it with the

crowds and all. cooper had a lot of fun on the rides. on the firetruck we have houston, cooper, jack, woody, jackson and gabby (houston's sister). the kids were worn out by the time we left!
