Bubbles, yo-yo's, hoops and a Marching Band...

Sam and some "Sticky bubbles
New Hoop with Will and the Juggling Festival in the background

Whew! Been a tad neglectful of my blog. There has been so much going on and i haven't taken the time to write anything down! Not that my life is exciting to anyone else but me! I have a great life filled with fun and adventure. I try to make that fun and adventure for my family and this weekend was no exception. It really sounded as if it wouldn't be that big of a deal---another yo-yo contest, another juggling festival. However, when juggling is involved, there is ALWAYS a show--intended or not. Here is a video of Will's 2nd place performance in Atlanta. Attached to the beginning is his casting information. More on that later...

Sam performed as well and did a GREAT job. I would post that as well but it's the previous routine that I have posted in an earlier blog!
So between the yo-yo contest and the juggling performances, there was the Seed and Feed Marching Abominable Band of Atlanta, GA Will described it as a marching geriatric transvestite band. Wow, it was pretty crazy and really fun!! My kids really seemed mildly effected. Not such a crazy scene for them apparently.


They were great performers and fun music! Organizations hire them to perform!
Will learned some new Diabolo tricks and Sam learned some new juggling moves. I hula hooped all afternoon and ended up with a bruise on my hip and sore shoulders! Curt tried out a Trikke
and decided it wasn't for him! It looked really fun! We missed the fire hooping, fire poi and fire juggling though. Rats. We got lost trying to find the venue. Note to self: BUY A GPS!!!!
Atlanta is 8 hours from here---a long 8 hours, but it was an adventure and definitely better than staying home and mowing the grass!
