There was a lot going on in Des Moines last weekend, besides hosting the USA Track & Field, Des Moines also had their annual Arts Festival! It was held at the Western Gateway Park downtown and featured the newly finished, amazing, Pappajohn Sculpture Park! We met up with the Pella VL's Saturday evening to take in all the art.
I accidentally spilled a large bucket of paint on the street...
Nathan enjoyed the kids activities, especially making his own superhero mask. Despite the 95 degree heat, he wore that thing the rest of the night!
With temps at 95 and heat index of 104, we tried to cool off by standing in the water feature by the library!
Nathan, the superhero, and I get cooled off and splashed around a little.
Having been melted in the heat, we headed up to Smokey Row to grab some ice cream in the conditioned air. I think Aaron was a little delirious from the heat, the was using this puzzle piece as his pacifier.
...but not to worry, he too got cooled off with a little ice cream!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Nathan loved his ice cream cone!
Aaron and Heather having a tickle fight...
...which spurred on Chad, Nathan and Aaron into a big tickle fight, filled with laughs and giggles!
We had a great time at the Arts Festival and hanging out with the Pella VL's. Let's do it again next year (minus the heat index)!
