Ben Wheeler Hogfest





We volunteer at the Ben Wheeler Children's Library, and we were asked to ride on the library float in the Hogfest parade. It was a ton of fun passing out candy and books to the adoring crowds.:) Then we walked around the festival, ate ice cream at Scoots n Scoops.....
Notice our lovely volunteer shirts? It was FREEZING and windy, which is why we're wearing jackets.
Then we walked over to watch people make sorghum and sugar.
It was really interesting. Christopher got to push sugarcane in the machine, as did Andrew and I.

Then it was time for our shift at the library, so we went and worked. We gave people tours, told them the history of the library, and shelved lots of books! Then it was time to go home.


The guys found an old car they liked.

A float decorated like a wagon.
