Apple Fest~Long Grove, IL

While we were visiting Jennifer and family near Chicago the last week in September, we went to the Apple Fest in Long Grove on Friday and again on Sunday.  Jennifer and part of her band, JENNERATOR, performed both days.  It was a fun time for us!  Here are some of the pictures:


Jackson, enjoying an apple





Jackson is studying the bee that is on his apple.


Jennifer and her Ukulele, getting ready to sing.


Jackson and his new best friends chased around and around the shrubs.



This guy not only walked around on "Tom-Walkers", but juggled while doing so!



What a ham!


This is one of the teachers from Kristina's Studio of Dance.


He did a little of several things!


Traffic was blocked off and people, food and entertainment filled the streets!


Looks like Jackson is eating a corn-dog as he gets a ride on Dad's shoulders.


Jackson, Bryan and Jennifer

Jeff, Jennifer and Tom, cutting up a bit.

These people really turn out for the 4 or 5 different "Fests" held at Long Grove each year!



Jennifer will be singing and playing at Cafe Aromas in Columbus, MS on Friday, November 23rd. at 7:30 P.M.   The address is 404 Main Street, down-town Columbus.  
 
Come out and enjoy!
