The boys were not too enthusiastic at first, but they perked up after some lunch. We found the food truck aisle, and I was able to try a taco from Lloyds, which is locally famous (and indeed, delicious). Matthew was happy because "his" hot dog truck (from the Taste of Williamsville) was there, and he and James both had hot dogs (also good, though overpriced in my opinion).
Then we found the KidsFest, which was really great. James was happy to play in the sandbox, and Matthew made an "acorn baby." Then, because he is such a sweet brother, he made one for James. The tent had an "acorn playground" for the acorn babies to play on, and James made a ninja course for his. :)
Then Mattie went to the face-painting station (and got an acorn painted on his wrist), and James went to the toy-making station. The project was a "catch the ball in the cup" game, and the kids sawed the stick, sanded it, used a drill to make the cup, and hammered it together -- pretty cool that they had a chance to use all those tools (in a well-supervised way). Mattie hadn't wanted to do it at first, and then changed his mind when he saw James's toy.
Another fun moment was running into their kindergarten teacher! I think it made their day, even though it was just a quick hello. :)

|I love the giant duck in the background.|
(And good thing we went in the late morning after ninjas -- apparently the traffic was a disaster in the late afternoon evening, with a baseball game, concert, and giant duck all happening within a few blocks of each other.)
|Matthew actually wanted me to take this picture!|

They noticed the family heirloom cow painting up on our wall, and so Matthew then painted his own version. :)
