A Busy Sunday

Last Sunday was a very busy day for us. We were in Mountain Lake to take in the Pow Wow festivities. Sunday morning we went to a community church service in the city park. The boys both sat very well and seemed to enjoy having church outside. After the service, we went back to my parents’ house for lunch. We also gave Mike and my dad their Father’s Day gifts. After that, we headed up to the park again to watch a little bit of the 3-on-3 basketball tournament. The Pow Wow Road Race & Fitness Walk was the next event on our agenda. Both Mike and I walked a mile in the fitness walk while pushing the boys. The races were after the walk. Jonah loved watching the runners, especially the young kids in the 1/2 mile race…maybe in the next year or two Jonah will get a chance to participate! We didn’t stay for the 4 mile race as we needed to go home to prepare for the kiddie parade. We hadn’t planned to put the boys in the parade, so I did not have any costumes with us. But, we pulled together a few items from their suitcases and a few things from Grandma and Grandpa’s house and created a farmer (Jonah) and a beach baby (Silas). Jonah was really into waving at everyone during the parade. Silas started waving right at the end of the 1 block parade route. They both received a book and a yogurt for participating – both were big hits! Then, we enjoyed supper in the park. I got my favorite – Laotian egg rolls. Jonah ate one, too, and really liked it! Mike had egg rolls but then also got one of his favorites – a Pow Wow Pup (a corn dog). Jonah had never had one of those either. He loved the few bites that he got. The town’s ministerial association sponsored a concert in the park that evening. We caught the first part of it but didn’t stay long. The boys were very tired – did you notice that there was no time for an afternoon nap?!?! I think we sufficiently wore the boys out that day.

Here are some of the pictures from our busy Sunday.

It just wouldn't be Pow Wow without a Pow Wow Pup!
