134. Potwin Watermelon Festival

We headed to Potwin to see Prairie Pride, a local cheese factory.  Well, we arrived to find the gentleman who ran had passed away a few years previous and the cheese factory was no longer open.  However, we were excited to discover that we accidentally stumbled upon the local Watermelon Festival.  So, we joined the fun and enjoyed the day.  Our daughter decided she likes accidental adventures best of all.

Getting to practice lassoing once again.
There were all kinds of fun activities for the kiddos--booths, games, a petting zoo, and face painting.  They had a great time and even got to ride an inflatable, mechanical bull.  Unfortunately, we did not get a picture of our son because the camera batteries were dead and he did not stay on long enough for us to change them. 
One of the kiddos favorite parts of the day was picking up coins in the street while being drenched by a fire hose.  Good thing the weather is HOT!!!  Good thing we had a change of clothes in the car for the ride home.  I think all the kiddos liked "dancing in the rain" even better than looking for coins.  It was sure fun to watch them all get wet.  Angel asked where a safe, dry spot would be before the fun began.  It's not always fun to get a wheelchair drenched.  :)
