A first for us...

My dear friend, Beth and I used to work the Vacation Bible School kitchen together at her church.  Their VBS is the biggest in the area, usually have between 150 and 200 children.  We had so much fun coming up with menus, making wagon wheels out of rice krispy treats and fellowship the entire time.  That was about 6 years ago (but we "worked" together for about 3 or 4).  Beth and I are still good friends, although we don't get to see each other as much :( 

Every year on the last day of VBS they have a little carnival for all the participants.  They have blow up slides and bounce-a-rounds, cotton candy, hot dogs, snow cones and lots of games for the kids to play (prizes are candy)...and its all FREE.  Oh almost forgot..they also have a full band that plays Christian rock music, very cool.

Well this year Beth asked me if we could bring the Camaro out because they were wanting to have a small car show to go along with the festivities...gives Dad something to look at too.  Of course, we agreed!

This was our first car show...and I have a feeling it will be the last!  Frank was extremely uncomfortable with people getting too close to his car, especially the little ones with snow cones in hand.  However, it did allow time for the guys to sit and visit, tell old hunting and racing stories...that's always a good time.

The black cherry 1967 Camaro w/ the picture in front is ours, the green Monza is Beth's husbands and the blue truck (my personal favorite) belongs to Beth's Father in Law.

Oh how cool! Thanks for posting the photos! What a great idea to put the photo of Frank at the starting line at Quaker in front of the car and the car looks awesome ... SHINY!!
Looks like you had nice weather ... what fun! I like seeing the other cars too ... cool!
Mulching is DONE and I'm headed in for ANOTHER shower before heading to Huron to have dinner with the Beelman's! It's nice to see you posting a little more often! Thanks for sharing!

How funny about your DH being uncomfortable with people getting too close to his car! Its a beautiful car! I can see why! Does he actually ever drive it if he's afraid of people getting too close to it with a snow cone, he must be terrified to take it on the road. A deer or another vehicle will do a lot more damage. LOL!

Gorgeous cars! I love the truck. I have a thing for antique cars and love going to antique car shows.
