Porter Peach Festival
Saturday, July 16, 2011
Triple-digit temperatures this summer have made spending long (or even short) periods of time outdoors rather unbearable. For two people completely against having a pool, Eric and I have pretty much "warmed" up to the idea. It's no longer a matter of if, but when!
Last night we decided to brave the elements in the small town of Porter, OK for the annual Porter Peach Festival. At 5 0'clock, the heat index must have been at least 106 degrees and didn't really change much by the time we finally decided to throw in the towel 3 hours later. It was so hot, there was nary a peach to be sold, save for one small table with about 3 bags on it, and those were most likely just for show!
But we made the most of it and played a couple of carnival games, rode a few rides, and made a valiant attempt to enjoy an ice cream cone before it formed a melted puddle at our feet.
Goodness, this boy is getting so big.
Nothing about him looks like a 5-year-old.

Our final stop before seeking refuge in our air-conditioned vehicle was the face-painting booth, the one thing Wyatt's festival experience would not have been complete without. I strongly encouraged him to pick a design that was simple, one that wouldn't itch his face off. But I should've known better. Subtlety is not one of his strong suits.

Today you can bet we'll be staying inside, furthering our research on pool installation and design.
