Overcoming Fear...A sure sign she's turning 4 soon!

Aside from the wind, the Arvada Kite Festival was awesome!  I know, I know, it's hard to have a kite festival without wind, but a little LESS wind would have been nice!  This was a free kite festival put on by the city of Arvada.  In the coming years, the kids will be excited about the enormous display of kites that covered the sky.  But at 2 and 3 years old, all they cared about was the free bouncy house slide available for endless trips up and down.  Mike and I were bored to tears practically as the kids enjoyed the time of their lives!  Finally, I heard someone call, "Courtney!".  Lillian's friend Sophia was at the festival too with her mom, Allison and sister, Alivia.  Thank goodness, they were "veteran" kite festival attendees.  They introduced the kids to the tents handing out free lollipops and other schwag.  And convinced Lillian to ride in a giant ball.  I waited in line for about 30-40 minutes for Lillian to have a chance to ride in a big ol' plastic ball.  When it was finally her turn, she chickened out.  Thank god the lady working the event had some experience dealing with fearful 3 year olds.  She patiently asked Lillian if she just wanted to sit in the ball and not move,  Lillian shook her head, "No".  Then the lady said, how about if mom holds the ball still and you just get in. Aha!  We had a winner, Lillian climbed right in that big gerbil wheel!  It only took her a second to realize this was gonna be fun, and away we went!

 A Little Help from her Friends...

Yup, she's turning into an adventurous 4 year old!
