Notes from the Wasatch Fall Festival

This was my third year at the Wasatch Fall Festival. The theme was something like "Wasatch Rocks!" and there was a hard-to-miss rock-and-roll theme. Including karoke. One four grader-looking girl sang a Miley Cyrus song that impressed the heck out of me. Well, I am from Utah so really NO ONE can impress the heck out of me. Heck will probably be with me until I die.

I paid to have a little something painted on The Chief's face, but due to multiple traumatic doctor visits in the past week he didn't want any sort of instrument of any kind around his body. So I stepped in and had a star painted on my cheek. When it was over the lady running the face painting booth apologized for the "cheap paints" and promised "better face painting next year". Later, I forgot all about that star until I had to shoot a video with Mindy Gledhill and she said to me, "You still have a star on your face."

Incidently, we also ran into The Chief's doctor there, but he didn't have any instruments with him, just his kids.The Chief=relieved.

There were some tasty cupcakes which my nephew Van brought to me on a paper plate. I tried to balance them and the stroller while talking  to Mindy Gledhill. Finally she said, "You are going to lose the cupcakes" and I did. The white cinnamon cupcake fell right off the plate and on to the blacktop. I asked Chup if he wanted me to rescue it so he could eat it, but he looked at me like I was nutso. To heck with him, didn't they have the ten second rule where he grew up?

Gigs had two Capri Suns plus a snowcone. Best night of his life.

Slab pizza catered the event. That is a step up, I think.

The Chief and I were the only ones I could see dancing in front of the DJ booth. I was doing a self-conscious side stepping move and The Chief was trying to karate chop me. To each their own, right? But seriously, I am going to have to teach that boy some moves. You can't karate chop to "California Gurlz."

We lost Ollie. We found Ollie. Ollie had big tears.

Jane wanted her hair spray painted a cool color. Inexplicably she chose orange.

This was the first year Claire wanted to hang out independent of us. She floated around with her friends until all her tickets were used up. I think she had the most fun.

But it's hard to tell, I think everyone had some enjoyment.

This ends my report.

I am c jane and I am Fall Fesitval-ed out!
