EIU has an art celebration every spring. They have fair food, craft vendors, music and even a kids craft tent. We haven't been in a few years and a good friend of a Mikes was coming down with his family so we decided to go meet up. Of course we saw a billion other people we (Mike) knew...
I didn't take any pics at the fair for some reason but the kids had a lot of fun. Eli played with Mikes friends 2.5 yr old. They got along great. It's kinda funny how well Eli played with a 2 yr old haha! Rowan said that I never let him do anything alone so he wanted to walk down the row of vendors by himself. He came back after the first one and said I could go with him ;) he did stay in the craft tent by himself painting.
We ate some good food- corn dogs and red velvet funnel cake! Yum
Afterwards we went to Mikes parents for a bit. Mike really wanted to go look for mushrooms in the ravine so rowan and I went with him. The hike back was going down a really steep hillside. Apparently it used to be a regular hill but a lot of the side got washed down in tge heavy rain a few years ago. Rowan had a blast! I really wish we had land like that for him to explore more but I'm glad we can at least go there so they can explore.
The kids ran around playing soccer and we ate supper before we headed home and went to bed. That hike was exhausting!
