Me, Hannah, and my mom went over the the Heritage Jubilee today. This is Hannah’s first year going and mom had never been before either. We got a late start and ended up parking at the far end of the softball fields…near the soccer field. From there, it was a bit of a walk to get the main area.
We wondered around the sellers tents for a while. Mom bought some wooden decorative signs, while several people stopped me to either say hi or say cute Hannah was. Hannah had a blast looking at everything. Eventually, we came across a petting zoo. We wanted to take Hannah in but it was going to be $3 per person so we didn’t bother. There was a donkey tied to a sign post, so we wheeled her over to him. We looked at him and pet him a few times. Then she leaned way out of the stroller and tried to bite him. Thankfully, the donkey was nice and very patient.
We took a break after that and sat down in the shade. Mom tried to get Hannah to eat while I went off in search of food and drink. Well…there wasn’t much searching involved since I knew where I was going; the buttered corn/sausage-on-a-stick/turkey leg stand…the same one we eat at every year. I got a buttered corn and two fresh squeezed lemonades. Later, I went back and got a sausage.
After being out there almost two hours, we decided to head back toward the car. Hannah was getting sleepy and I know mom’s hips were starting the hurt even though she didn’t say anything. When we reached the car, some idiot had parked their truck sideways, blocking me in. It wouldn’t have been much of a problem if I had a smaller vhechial…but I have a firggen huge 4Runner. I had to back out sideways to get through the narrow gap. I barely made it through.
Just as I stopped to let mom back in the car (she stood outside to let me know how much space I had), two teen boys came walking by and went straight to the truck. I ‘discreetly’ rolled the windows down and started yelling about ‘asshole boys who can’t park their trucks without blocking people in’. Mom just shook her head at me as I tried to peel out to pelt them with gravel but failed miserably. It used to be easier to do when I had my Scion xB.
Aside from the idoit teens, we had a great time. Hopefully next year Jason will be off from work and get to go with us.
