An Evening at the Maple Leaf Festival in Carthage, MO

Earlier this month, our family had the opportunity to travel to Carthage, MO with a friend who was ministering in music at the Maple Leaf Festival. My husband played the drums for her and our son Michael played guitar. The rest of us {minus the other two older boys} spent some time in the city park while waiting for the music to start.

We fell in love with the Victorian era fountain and pretty scrolled metal park benches. It was a sweet place to hang out---a place I plan on visiting again soon!

Lynzie and I took a zillion photos like this, trying to get the sunbeam just right behind us. It's fun being silly with my girl.

Since Lynzie was all decked out in a Steampunk outfit, we decided she needed a photo on this Victorian-esque park bench.

The band was excellent and everyone really enjoyed the worship music. I may have done a little bit of bragging on my guys in the band. Ha!

Ok...one more sunshine photo. It was fun!

While the olders were hanging out with the adults, the littles enjoyed some inflatables. Here's Kynthia having the time of her life on an enormous inflatable slide.

There was something fun for everyone---I even took a minute to try out the ball toss. I wasn't so great at it...

I'm thankful for fun times out with family and so glad the weather has cooled enough to get outside without melting into a puddle!

Hope you're having a great week. Thanks for stopping by the Homemaking Party. I'm excited to see what you've got to share!
