There were three craft tables set up. They decorated their own flags and streamers (wrapping party streamers around toilet paper rolls). Here they are decorating "fans."
There was watermelon and lemon-aid to enjoy...there are more cute pictures of them on the Arkansas Democrat Gazette website. Here are a couple of links...click here or here, and there are a few others, as well.
Dash was amazing in the sack races (Tornado, bless his heart, not so much.) He took off, and there was no slowing him down.
Tornado did enjoy learning how to properly stand at attention, hold his weapon, and march in the militia. They also played in a spoon/water relay and practiced walking with stilts.
After our day at the Frontier celebration, we ate supper out, then decided to go home. We had planned on staying downtown for the fireworks celebration, but it honestly always turns into one of those things we do for the kids because we think we should - like we WANT them to enjoy it, but they don't really care either way. We decided they would have a better time picking out a few fun things at the fireworks tent and going home. Always my favorite - the black snakes. Aren't those things the coolest?
The kids loved their little race cars that zoomed across the driveway after being lit. We also had quite a good time with the little poppers.
Post fireworks treat...Raspberry flavored Natural Desserts Vegan Jel, which was full of fresh, chopped strawberries and blueberries and Soyatoo whipped cream on the side. A yummy alternative to bone/connective tissue Jello. (just sayin') :)
