Chris, Little Man and I went to meet Mom, my sister and her son on Sunday after church to spend a relaxing afternoon at Oktoberfest. We has a blast hanging out with my family and enjoyed the wonderful Fredericksburg atmosphere. Every time I am down in that area, it makes me more and more homesick....
Our first stop before entering the Oktoberfest area, was the Fire Station right next door to the festival. The boys had a blast looking at the fire trucks.
We walked around everywhere and then Little Man found the Kinder Park and wanted to show off his "Big Boy" talents.
He was bound and determined to show the older boys and Mommy that he could climb the Jacob's Ladder without help. To my surprise, he actually did it! I was so proud of my Big Boy!!! Since he got to the top by himself and rang the bell, he was given two gold coins as a prize to trade in for toys before we left. I forgot about the video recorder on my phone, so here are the first couple of pics of his climb.
We couldn't help but take a few snapshots on the pretty decor before we left and headed back home.
