End of Summer Hoedown

About a month ago (actually, it was more than a month ago... and I'm JUST getting around to downloading pictures), John's parents invited us to come over to their community for the End of Summer Hoedown. It was an event mainly for families with children and advertised a bounce house, pony rides, petting zoo, country music, dancing and bar-be-que. Now, being a good Texas girl, OF COURSE I wanted to go (El Paso is totally part of Texas). That, and it sounded like fun for the boys. Pony rides? Uh, yeah!

We got there a little early, so we had to play on the really cool play structure that was down the street a little ways.

Too busy climbing to give me a smile.

Daddy, helping the boys through tires, up poles and down slides.
 And then the rest of the evening was just as fun as advertised. Minus the ponies because neither boy was interested in taking the wild beast for a stroll. By "wild beast" I mean "completely sedate gentle creature". The food was a hit (they had a buffet for adults and another for kids... but the adults of our group didn't realize there was an adult one until we had stocked up on mac and cheese and tater tots), the bounce house was a blast, and the petting zoo/farm was a delight for both kids.

It's so much easier to get shots like this of Hank than Johnny because Hank doesn't seem to move as quickly. That, and he's usually closer to me than Johnny. Who had already sprinted across a large field when I started taking these shots.

Thanks for the fun time, Grandpa and Grandma Durso!
