Then I did chores, like budgeting (grrr) and dishes, laundry and feeding kids, and wondered what to do next. There's a great little street fair in our town after the 4th of July, so I called a friend and we took our kids to wear them out and see what there was to see. The end goal was free ice cream with gift certificates, so anything free was gold. Some treasures the kids found for free at booths were: bubbles, York peppermint patties, antibacterial spray (ouch in the eyes!), toothpaste and toothbrushes, Froot Loop necklaces and rocks to paint, and even a bouncy house. I love our town!

We had enjoyed our time at the street fair with all of our free things when we came upon this creation... Urban Crochet! Our city is apparently very trendy and cosmopolitan now, because urban crochet is all the rage in the city. Well, I think it is. I see other people's blog photos of it!Someone had decided to crochet a cozy for the bike rack. The kids thought it was comfy.

Then we made our way on the trail back to the ice cream place and the day was complete.... that is until we got home!
Levi had to try out his new bubble wand.

Then he noticed our dog, Koa, playing with a little woodpecker. Oh dear! We saved him from Koa, but he was pretty wet and missing most of his tail feathers. His little foot was bruised. I'm not sure if he made it, but we tried our best and I got some photos to boot. Then of course, we washed our hands well. Now the day was complete.
