We went to the annual Town and Country Days down in Kettle Falls today for the parade and some rides. All of the kids handle rides better than I do, and Ethan and Sam even went on The Zipper and acted like it was no big deal. I admit I thought they’d chicken out before they got on, but I’ve been proven wrong. There was so much candy thrown by the folks in the parade that the boys stopped bothering to pick it up — also a surprise to Mommy. It was awfully fun seeing our friend Cherry riding the church bus!
