My sister-in-law told us about Kid's Day in Beinville Square which is in the middle of downtown Mobile. The central fountain. Don't you just love the bright green sign, I amaze myself with my great natural ability to take photographs!
An wider view of the Square.
They sometimes have bands playing in this gazebo for special events. I always thought there was a nice southern charm about this structure.
Miriam loved the petting zoo. They had rabbits and geese and chickens.
Tobie couldn't resist the face painting. He got a spider and Miriam got a butterfly that kind of looked like a flower with four petals.
The lady in the green dress is a friend of mine. She is in my home ward and I grew up with her daughters. She goes to events to do dancing or cooking hispanic food. Miriam heard the music from across the park and walked right over. I didn't think she would go out there, but she was more than happy to put the skirt on and Lily (our friend) came over and took her hand and guided her out there. She stood in the middle for a while, and she really loved holding her skirt up like the other dancers. When it was time to take it off she protested a bit. It sure is a nice little city.
Happy 43rd Birthday Matt!
