I love the small town festivals around here. Ours is the Garlic Festival, a reflection of the gradual shift in this area from orchards, which have fallen on hard times, to organic farming, garlic being the mainstay of that burgeoning business.
The festival is in the city park, the same park that has the pool in it, so Isaiah swam with his friends for awhile. Kim helped at the Band Boosters booth. Lidia hung out with friends. Jeremiah was at a birthday party. I wandered around and enjoyed the tamales and cinnamon rolls and the great local music.
A wonderful August day. It's one way we build memories to help warm us during the long, cold nights to come.
