The Duck Derby Festival

On Saturday, it was time for the actual Duck Derby Festival.  We headed back over to check everything out in the morning.  It was very fun - there were lots of sponsors, vendors, and things for kids to do - but it was sooo hot and humid.  We stayed about an hour, checking things out and letting Katie Anne do some activities.  She loved the princess bouncy house, pony ride, and her balloon duck the best!  We left a little after 12:00 to go get some lunch at Moe's (they had lots of food vendors at the Duck Derby, but it was so hot that I couldn't eat out there), so we didn't get to see the actual release of the ducks down the river at 2:30 pm.  We still had a lot of fun at the Duck Derby!

Showing off her balloon duck - she chose this color herself, much to the surprise of the clown making the animals!  He said kids rarely choose the brown balloons, but I guess KA was trying to stick to more natural duck colors.  :)
Pony ride time!
We need to go into the bouncy house business - this five minutes of fun costs $4!

WOW! Great pictures. I especially liked the ones of KA with you and Saunders.

Looks like fun. Maybe they needed a mist tent for the adults. I hate when hot days force us to miss out on fun stuff.

We must have just missed y'all on Saturday - we got there around 12:30 or so. Bear loved the pony rides too! Glad you had a fun weekend!
