Tyler and I went to a blueberry festival at a Protestant Church a few weekends ago. It’s funny, you parents drag you to these things that you complain about as tweens and teens as really cheesy and then you bring your kids to the same things! We didn’t know a soul but the people there were welcoming and friendly.
Tyler immediately went for the cupcake with blue frosting while I went for the more traditional blueberry short cake. We drank lemonade and then I convinced him to try something with actual blueberries in it, blueberry pie!
They had a band and Tyler immediately began dancing. He loves to dance. I tried to get him to dance with a little girl there but they were too shy. I was his dancing partner for a while.
Looking more like a concertgoer at Woodstock, Tyler gets into the peace and love by listening to Christian folk music!
I love summer nights like this. Whenever we go to something like this, Tyler always asks, “Can we come here again next week?” and I have to explain to him that these fairs and festivals happen only once a year. Fortunately our wonderful times together are a lot more often than that!
