Brian and Jeff returned from Boy Scout camp yesterday afternoon. Once they had a chance to shower up, we wanted something mellow and low-effort to do, so we decided to check out the “Celebrate Shoreline” festival.
This is our town’s annual festival celebrating . . . the existence of the town? I guess?
There was a guy blowing these enormous bubbles. You can see Eleanor and William ready to pounce at the bottom of the photo. Katie wasn’t quite fast or tall enough to pop the bubbles before the other kids, and got a little upset. All of them ended up with little bubble bits in their hair.
There was a “reptile show,” and later a juggling show, where William got to be a volunteer. It was cooler than it appears in this photo.
I think everyone’s favorite was the petting zoo. If you were able to get into one of the chairs in the back, you were allowed to cuddle with a bunny. Or bunnies, the staff workers weren’t in any hurry to get you out. “Would you like to try the black bunny now?” they’d ask, like a bunny concierge.
If I’m ever a billionaire, a bunny concierge will definitely be something I’ll look into.
