Buck Creek Festival

Saturday we spent a beautiful day with family and friends at the Buck Creek Festival in downtown Helena. I was not sure how the day would go, but my plan was to get out there early and stay as late as possible. We drove to the top of our neighborhood and parked to catch the shuttle. Once we got that far we just decided to go ahead and walk the rest of the way and to my surprise it really was not all that far. We all had a great time eating, listening to music and watching the rubber duck race.

For those of you who are not familiar....you have the chance to buy one, two or a flock of ducks. Each duck has a number written on the bottom, they are all tossed in a huge container and later dumped into the Cahaba River. There is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place duck with money prizes. Needless to say we did not win anything, but we had a great time watching.

After the race Dada taught Edie how to throw rocks and she tried eating a few too. After wandering back to our spot and a few pokes to the eye we gathered out things and headed home. I could not believe how well Edie did throughout the day. We were there for a total of SIX hours with just one 5 minute nap!!! I can not tell you how much fun I had spending the day outdoors with everyone. It was a great Saturday!! { with the exception of the walk back }
