Clear Lake Heritage Days

by Megan

Last weekend was the annual Clear Lake Heritage Days festival. Since Dave had to work, I decided to take the boys and head “home” for the weekend. We spent the weekend having a blast! Lots of memories were made.

On the way to CL, I had to “force” the boys to nap (it involved me telling them to keep their eyes closed until we got to Poppa’s house). Eli fell asleep for about 30 mins. Noah did not. This is what he looks like when he’s being “forced” asleep.


We headed to town on Friday night and attempted some rides. First Eli road on a little pony, he enjoyed it but reported that horses stink.


Noah participated in the sawdust coin search. He was done after 2 minutes.


I wasn’t sure how the ride thing was going to go, the boys have never been in rides. Noah wasn’t a fan of the train ride, he cried and screamed.


We attempted another ride. It was a car ride that went really fast in circles. They loved it. They also loved the rocket ship ride – round and round and up and down. But they didn’t like the train ride…at first!




On Saturday we went to the parade a fun sat with Jodi and Connor. Jodi taught me the finer points of being a mom and going to parades. Connor was fantastic and shared the “loot” with the boys. We also saw Auntie Brianna in the parade! The boys thought that was fantastic!!



After no naps on Friday, I decided I wasn’t going to do that two days in a row. Eli went to the demo derby with Poppa while Noah and I went home and slept for a bit. It was nice! Eli loved the demo derby and has been playing demo derby with his cars here at home. :-)


We did more rides on Saturday and the boys loved it.






The boys went on some four wheeler rides before heading to bed. Eli went with Uncle Craig and Noah went with me.



We ended a fabulous weekend with the car show on Sunday. Poppa had his Road Runner entered so we went to see it. The boys had fun crawling all over it. They love Poppa’s race car!
