Robin Hood Festival

Sherwood holds an annual Robin Hood Festival, which we have gone to in past years.  This year, we decided to go to a different place in the parade, closer to the front.  It was a pretty classic small-town parade, with fire trucks

and Star Wars characters ... wearing Robin Hood hats (the kids were pretty excited about this!).

Being at the front of the parade meant we got lots and lots of candy!  Kate became quite adept at sending others out into the street for her pink candy.  She even had the family sitting next to us giving her their pink candy!

At the festival, we played a few little games and watched a magician and sword fighting shows.  Liam liked the "fightin' guys!"

At the parade, a girl from a martial arts school brought a board for Jacob to break.  He was pretty excited when he broke it.  He wound up breaking the pieces again and again into even smaller boards!

At the festival, Liam got to have a turn breaking a board too.  I bet he could've broken it with his hand, too!

The best part, of course, was the food.  Actually, the entire reason we go to the festival is for the Sweet Apple Pie Fries, which are about the yummiest things I have ever had!  Wow!
