Saturday morning, half of our crew headed to the lake for some fishing. Max's first fishing experience and, from what I hear, he is hooked. He got so excited catching his first fish that he fell backwards in the boat, breaking off the end of his pole! The rest of us hiked down the road to the fire station for the Blue Ridge arts and crafts fair. The little ones had fun painting paper butterflies and the fire captain, dressed as a clown, entertained the kids with his balloon animals. Calvin had to dig deep for the courage to ask for green balloon dog (he hates clowns, but really hates balloons popping!).
We spent the rest of the day relaxing, riding the 4-wheeler, exploring the forest, and feeding our new squirrel.
Holiday weekend...a success.
