Bunkie Corn Fest

We had a wonderful time in Bunkie, LA for the Corn Festival.  Andre is from there and invited us to stay at his parent's house for the weekend.  What a great idea! Thanks, Dicharrys! We arrived in Bunkie on Friday and did some porch sitting, dinner eating, kid bathing, and put them down with a movie.  We went to the town square for the big band: Chee Wheez!  ha!  It was fun!

They were giving these fans out for FREE!

We LOVE Bunkie!

Saturday: The kids were up bright and early to begin the day!  We started off at Andre's uncle's funeral home for the parade.  What fun and what a HOT morning!

Twins in our custom made corn tanks! We were def best dressed,

Here's the corn crew!

I love these people.  Great idea by us: we left SK with Neil's parents.  

All the girls!

One of the throws...

This is what was inside.  Not sure.

Maddie in the corn shucking competition

Neil won 1st place in the corn shucking contest!  He won a GOLD medal and $20!

Neil, Andre, Marc, and Erin entered the 4 man team shucking race to attempt to break the Guinness book of world records.  The # to beat was 31.  They got 22.  Another team actually did beat the record with 35 ears!

The team with the corn kids!
The tired, hot, corn fest group!

Some really cute kids with their winnings!  All that blow up stuff only cost $100 in games!

We were exhausted and HOT so we went back to Andre's parent's house and his dad sent us to the hardware store for a tarp.  Their neighbor has a pool so all 15 of us went over to swim.  We came home and Andre's dad set up this slip n slide for the kids!  How sweet!  He even cooked for us!

We had a great time on our summer vacation! Yes, our vacay was to Bunkie.  Henry told me later "Mom, I love Bunkie."  I'd say it was a WIN!
