Dewberry festival

Today we attended our very first Dewberry festival! It is an annual event in Cameron and is highly anticipated by the locals :) We always jump at the opportunity for free local entertainment (we usually have to drive)! Our first activity was fishing. It was Emma's first time and she had a blast! She is already asking to go fishing tomorrow.

She even got this cool free t shirt to take home....

Next, we browsed through the many vendors. There were plants, jewelry, puppies for sale, crafts galore and much more! For lunch we enjoyed bbq chicken sandwiches and freshly squeezed lemonade under a shade tree.

Emma had fun on the giant inflatbale slide and kiddy train. I must admit that it was rather strange letting her ride something without a parental unit. I'm pretty sure it was a first! Strangers even buckled her seat belt! J & E also toured antique remodled cars.

I was totally expecting dewberry cobbler and a farmers market on site but was a litte disappointed not to find either :/ Nonetheless, we enjoyed some quality family time and discovered a beautiful park and fishing pond in our community! We will be back soon.
My guys both wore plaid short today. I just had to get a photo:
