This year I believe was the 39 year that the asparagus festival has taken plave. It's a tradition in this city to attend. Eat a lot of fried asparagus and bask in the sun. This was our second year attending and it was pretty fun. After all the grubbing, we headed over to the kiddie area. They had a huge slide, ponies, games, bounce houses and a park. It was a little much for Max I think, but he held his own. I do think his favorite thing was the juice we bought him in the grape container. "Purple drink" as we called it. Max never gets juice, and certainly never a whole one. Perhaps that sounds harsh. But if you witnessed the sugar high this boy gets, you'd be hiding the juice too.
