We had an amazing time last year with D, so we invited a bunch of other families and went back. This is a festival not to be missed... if you are a hippie, live in the bay area, like animals, circus, line dancin', smoothies, home made ice cream, ziplines, haystack forts, petting animals, swimming, etc... basically if you are sane. This year we met up with the Souzas, Smiths, Nickelsens, Mindy & Eric, D, and ran into Kara, that was great.
On the way home, we drove out of our way a bit and met up with the Hoefts at the Western Railroad Museum. The kids had a blast.
- Get on the ziplines, etc early... before the line is too long.
- Get there early... there's too much to do.
- Nikko won't need a nap! That's more time for partying!
|Setting up for campin'|
|Testing out the new hammock... it was used for about 20 min.|
|Greeting the cows on our way in|
|Kai churning ice cream!|
|Hey look... that's my acrobatics instuctor from Athletic Playground. Vik... This is while waiting in line for the zipline!|
Kai was too young last year... I think he's a bit young this year... but they let him go anyway.
|They made this thing a bit too complicated. Next year: headlights, and a watch with a 3 min timer... so that they can pop out and tell us they are ok.|
|Went back to camp to grab a few things... but check out this set up! Party outside the fest!|
|Kai on the dunk tank!|
|Nikko gettin' his groove on|
|Go Nikko Go!|
|The next morning, we met up with the Hoefts at the Western Railway Museum. It's in the middle of nowhere, but it's really cool|
|as Kool as Willie the Penguin|
|The train takes you on like a 10 min journey, stops then turns around...|
|it's quite exciting for little boys../|
|Nikko showing off his stinko face...|
|The Hoeft boys beat the Kuwabara kids on the "goofy" shot..|
