Bike, Stroll and Bounce...

Last week they shut down Main St in our little town and showed a movie for all the kids, before the movie they had fair food, bounce houses and face painting. It was exactly what I had envisioned a perfect family outing being. I have always dreamed of a cool historic downtown with brick buildings and fun trendy shops and that is exactly what our little downtown is like. SCORE!

We attached the kids trailer to the bikes and biked a few miles to Main St. We were not sure what to expect but it was perfect! There were tons of families with kids all over. They had fair food stands set up so we of course had to indulge in corn dogs, fresh cut fries, and a lemon shake up!! YUM! We did not stay for the movie since it was past the boys bedtime and let's face it a 10 month old and a 2 year old do not really sit through movies. But they had 3 screens set up which was cool so EVERYONE could be close to the screen! I cannot wait until the boys are old enough because we will be front and center with blankets and pop corn! 

Okay so the coolest thing about the Cougar 2 is that we used it as a bike carrier then we parked our bikes and unhitched it and turned it into a stroller the second we got downtown! Then when it was over we hitched it back on and went on our way! It only takes like 10 seconds to make the switch....pure genius! Plus the boys LOVE it! 
 Vincent was not too fond of this tiger...he kept his distance at all times and peeked around daddy to make sure he was safe! ha! 

 We met some puppies, the one cleaned out the graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of Cougs! 

Vincent LOVES bounce houses now, it took a few times for him to get used to it! He is such a big boy now!


 Luke enjoyed the food and scenery!





 Finally some Luke and Mommy pictures...what a doll!







I am hoping that they do this type of thing often! It was so much fun and great exercise for all of us! All they need to make the experience better is an ice cream shop downtown! I am such an ice cream lover....a few weeks ago I said how in love I was with Ben and Jerry's Late Night Snack...well I am even more in love because I got some ice cream cones last week for the boys, well I drizzled some caramel inside the cone (I used to work at an ice cream shop in high school and we experimented a lot) and then I added a scoop of Late Night Snack ice cream and it is HEAVEN!! You can also do this with hot fudge....yum yum yum yum....the good thing is that eating ice cream out of a cone vs a bowl is the serving size is smaller. I just fill the cone up and a little over the top! 

Hope you all had an amazing Father's Day weekend! We have a busy week ahead, Jordans birthday is tomorrow and we are taking the boys on a road trip to Niagara Falls and then back to my hometown for a good amish festival and fireworks! I am hoping to get a lot of good pictures! Have an amazing week! xoxo
