I was so busy last week and I didn't even realize that The Crawford Clan needed some attention. I sat down on Friday and started prepping a few posts that I planned to post Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Clearly that didn't happen. Here's the first of few posts this week of what we've been up to.
OKTOBERFEST in Frankenmuth, MI
Billy and Lauren made this trip last fall while William and stayed home. They had so much fun and talked about their little trip all year that we had to join in on the fun.
Frankenmuth is less than two hours from home and everyone was ready for a change of scenery. We camped with Grandma and Grandpa at a Yogi Bear campground. There was so much for the kids to do including an indoor pool.
Heh Boo Boo!
The festival was so much fun with activities for the adults..ie, beer and tons for the kids too!
Lauren was basically thrown onto a velcro wall and hung there for five minutes. Seems boring, but the kids were lined up for this one.
Most of the patrons seemed to be veterans. Many were wearing their lederhosen's, brought their own german beer mugs, and each time you heard the hiss of a new keg being tapped...there was cheering and drinking. As you can imagine, that happened a lot! The band was quite the scene as well...not sure why they were chopping wood, but the crowd was loving it!
Such a fun family weekend! Billy is already planning for next year. If you are interested in joining the fun...let us know:)
