Bridgeland Nature Festival

There's a big neighborhood in our area called Bridgeland that puts on a huge nature festival every year. We've never been, but we had heard it has lots of fun things to do.  So, Saturday after Dane's game we headed over there for some fun for a few hours.  It was a pretty big festival, with everything being free for the most part besides the food.  There were paddle boats, kayaking, laser tag, several bouncy houses and obstacle courses, camel riding etc etc.  We had a great time, and spent a couple hours there before heading out just in time to miss the horrible thunderstorms that Houston got yesterday.  

Dane and Kevin did some kayaking.  Dane thought this type of boat looked "cooler" than the paddle boats, so he chose this. His reasoning is just funny.  

I can't even tell you how grossed out I was when I saw the booth of armadillos.  Only in Texas.  Kids were given gloves and allowed to go in and pet them.  GAG!!! 

Thankfully, Dane wanted no part of actually touching them, and was only in the booth for about 1.5 seconds.  Ugh.  Gave me the willies.  

Dane loved the laser tag! He looked hilarious in the head piece, but this was right up his alley.  

And his pants are wet from the kayaking.

He did the inflatable obstacle course about 175 times.  

I saw a booth with fried oreos.  Um, Yes please!! SOOOOOO good! 

We had a great time.  It was pretty hot and humid though which sucked.  I guess our cool fronts are gone.  :(  We got back to our truck just in time for it to start pouring.  Then we vegged out the rest of the day.  Good Saturday.  Scroll down for pictures from game 7.
