Decorated Smiles!

Cheetah!
Summer time brings many things to do in our local community. We have parades, fairs, festivals, art shows, car shows, kite festivals and this coming weekend the first Pirate Festival! I always look forward to the spring and summers here because it gives me the opportunity to share the fun with the children. They get to see many things from local bands to handmade quilts and more!

Flower Child!This weekend they held the Southern Oregon Kite Festival here at our port, in the kite field. On Saturday we were all bummed because it was raining, so we didn’t attempt to go down and watch. Sunday clouds came out but the rain stayed away so we headed to the festival.

Green LanternPoppy took the children down to the port early and I met up with them later. The kids had a blast! There was a kite booth set up for kids to make their very own kites. Then we got the kids snow cones and sat down to watch the kite show!

Michelle Passey of www.reddingfacepainting.com painted the kids faces. She did a really wonderful job! Emily got a flower, Karmen went for the Cheetah and Anthony was the Green Lantern. Make sure to check out her blog for more face painting ideas.

The kids!
