Celebrating the Fourth of July with Our Friends!

With the Fourth of July holiday right around the corner, we thought we'd take our friends out to celebrate! You'll probably recognize some of the locations--we played at the park near the Grimes Public Library and cooled off with a frozen treat at Heavenly Delights. 

Everybody had to hold on tight on the merry-go-round. D.W. and Buster were especially nervous!

 It was a test of weights as the friends tried to teeter-totter! Looks like the Curious George/T-Bone combination outweighs Clifford and Skippyjon Jones. Arthur, D.W., and Buster aren't enough to challenge Francine and Bad Kitty, either!

Arthur has them all beat in a race to the top of the jungle gym!

Finally, after a warm day at the park, everyone headed to Heavenly Delights for ice cream. Arthur and friends were especially hungry! Good times today!


  1. Way too funny. My characters just went on vacation to the closet for the summer.

  2. We'd seen other librarians' blog posts about the vacations their characters were taking, and we decided that even though we weren't going someplace far away and super-duper, we could hit some local, popular spots and have "mini-vacations." :) Glad you like the pictures!
