They best part of the entire day had to be Elmo. Can you believe that he came to our festival?!?! The kids were so excited when they saw him walking through the crowd. We had to stop and get a picture taken with him (Unfortunately, I hadn't brought the camera so I had to use my phone.) Drew talked about it for days. He would say, "He was big and hairy, hairy, hairy!"
While we were all excited to see Elmo, Mommy was less excited when the kids played a game and won goldfish. Excellent. We won three, but one didn't even survive the first night. The next morning we woke up and the kids wanted to check on the fish. I asked what they wanted to name them and Izzie didn't hesitate one minute. She pointed to the fish and said, "Dad and Emilio." In case you are wondering, I do not know anyone named Emilio and can't imagine where Izzie has heard that name. It cracks me up though so here are our new fish.
(I have no idea which is which)
We had a great time at St. Cecilia's festival!
