Strawberry Festival

Sunday May 17th Dave, Kaitlynn and I attended the Strawberry Festival at the Belleville Eckert's. We went to the kid's area first. While waiting to meet up with Emily and Ella, Kaitlynn rode her first ride all by herself! She rode on an airplane swing.

Kaitlynn wasn't too sure of the ride at first and started to protest. We told her that we would stay close by. The guy running the ride told Kaitlynn to give it a try and if she didn't like it, he would stop it and let her off. She seemed OK with that, but she wouldn't look at us at first.
She seemed to enjoy it though.
She played in the sandbox.
Sat on the turtle.
Fed the goats, which was her most favorite thing.

She also fed a pony
and pet a wallaby
and a camel.

Kaitlynn and Ella had fun running around while we ate lunch. We also enjoyed some custard. Yum!
Sadly, we weren't able to pick strawberries because the fields had been picked out the day before.
It was such a nice, warm day!
We ran into my sister Denise, her husband and kids (Johanna and Brandon). Kaitlynn loves Neece and Hanna.
Riding the airplane swing one last time.
