Fall Festival

What says "welcome fall" like a good ol'small town parade and festival? Well, Bushnell did not disappoint. The parade was well attended and participated in. The girls rode on the 4-H float and threw out candy to the spectators. They are both Cloverbuds in 4-H this year. It was a early morning rise, which we were late for, but who's counting. We all went slick headed and a little wrinkly. We spent our budget on carni-food...cotton candy, snowcones, funnel cakes,gyros and bottled water. Yeehaw!

We do love this small town life. Booths that hold the latest knitted tissue holder and harvested local honey. More independent small businesses represented than the big companies. It is nice to know more people than you realized, and wish I had woke up that 20 minutes earlier to do my hair. Friends and locals. Every church and allegiance flew their flag, and it was nice. Politics did not leave us alone, but we can make it a few more days.

We drove through Bushnell yesterday and I was amazed at how many people were at that festival! It looked like everyone that lives in Bushnell came out! I wish we could've stopped for the parade and seen the girls on the float!

We must have missed each other. I had to work the inflatables yesterday afternoon for our school. It was really packed.
