    Usually it don't take much to entice us to go to the park, but with CIV, the Pirate event, etc. we're having to be more conservative this year. Plus we prefer the quieter times of year to avoid the crowds and or the heat.

    We're sitting this one out, sorry.

    Have a good time and enjoy!

    Wow! That mural is beautiful!

    Such a shame that the city could not be pursuaded to wait one whole day or do it one day earlier. That so sucks :(

    The reason for the "have to do it NOW" thing..is that they are on a time crunch due to this being an Eagle Scout Project. Apparently they were told it first had to be ON the scout's 18th birthday, and now..BEFORE his 18th birthday in order to count. If they are even one day late getting it mounted and dedicated..then the boy doesn't get his Eagle Scout Badge..or rank. But his birthday is the cutoff time..and they are wanting to allow a bit for any unforseen things that could happen.

    But dang it..STILL want to be there!!! :_|

    What really is frustrating.. is the city was 3 full weeks behind schedule in getting the panels delivered here. So, work couldn't start until the panels arrived. Otherwise, it would have been finished a while ago.

    I got a sneak preview of the mural already, but I just gotta officially say here how lovely it is. I can't wait to see the whole thing.

    Sorry you both couldn't go to the event, however.

    *HUGS*

    - Kai, who also didn't go...

    Cool shot, James!!! Still upset that we had to miss it this year. But WATCH OUT NEXT YEAR!! LOL

    I have been wearing my shirt, and have gotten LOTS of complements on it. Told people that while I wasn't there physically this year, was most definitely there in "spirit." ;) Also have sent a number of people your way to purchase a shirt.

    Can hardly wait for next year!!!!

    Of course neither of my boys are really looking in the direction of the camera in that shot :rolleyes:
    It was a lot of fun, if not a bit hot. So glad it wasn't humid on top of it all.
    We knew you guys were there even if you couldn't make it [:D]

    Daniel Logan joined us for the Group Photo! :D

    You can see him sitting down in the very front, slightly to the left, in the brown shirt, giving a double thumbs up.

    Nice job, although it looks like the turnout was way down from last year. I counted about 161 in the 2006 photo, just over 100 in this year. Maybe it's a bit of burnout from CIV too.

    Still waiting for our shirts to arrive, purchased them the week before the event, hopefully they will get here soon.
