Out with a Bang

September 4, 2011

Last minute, we headed south to the Dansville Balloon Festival. We joined the locals OUTSIDE the festival and claimed a spot on the side of the road instead of going in this year. It was impressive, although Lily sorely wanted to go inside the fair to go inside the balloon they have laying on its’ side for that purpose. Next time!

Then I amazed my children by telling them I knew of a good playground in the neighborhood. They have actually been, they just didn’t remember it. A girl from Lily’s class was playing there, too. First, however, we walked a ways in the stony brook.

The balloons followed us there.

This place was created for almost-3-year-olds: Amos had the time of his life.

I always think of Dansville as being SO FAR AWAY, but it really wasn’t. I think the last time I went there I was running late for a date (not THAT kind, a play-date), and under those circumstances, it definitely would have felt far. But today it wasn’t far. And it was fun. We need to come back more often.
