Amerifest 2010

This morning we attended our church's annual Amerifest service and event. We went to the 8am service since Jodi was helping with the 'inflatables' starting at 9:30am. The choir was fantastic, I have to say.

We honored all our veterans with a standing ovation - quite moving.

The weather started out okay; we joined Jodi at the inflatables for a bit.
Paeton loved climbing up the big slide by herself.

And she really LOVED going down. This was a pretty steep slide but she was fearless.

The rain started to come down - and pretty hard. We took cover inside of the church for awhile and met up with some friends. We then went outside to the food tent and got some grub. Here's Paeton and Riley hanging out in their strollers.

And here's Paeton being goofy.
The girl's ate hot dogs, chips, watermelon and beans for lunch.
We met up with the Stanley family in the food tent - here's Paeton with her friends Brooke and Clayton.

Paeton started to get a little stir crazy in her stroller so we ventured back out to the inflatable area.

Paeton and Riley played for awhile in the tots area - everything was soaked from the terrible rain storm we got but they didn't mind.
We left around noon and soon after the sun came out and provided for a great rest of the day for all the people who attended Amerifest. A special thanks to our friend Mike Poelzer for organizing such a fantastic event. We can't wait to see how much money was raised and how many pounds of food everyone contributed to the Waukesha Food Pantry.
