A few months back, Andrew and I were talking about traditions. We made a list of all the different holidays and a few things we wanted to do to celebrate each one. After our list was finished we decided that August was looking a little bare.
And that's how Baronfest was born. Next, we had to come up with a few activities. Red Baron pizza, silly string fights, and glow stick dancing seemed like obvious choices. We also had good intentions of sharing a family history story, creating our own family flag, T-shirts, "Baron Tracks" ice cream and decorating cupcakes. Not enough time in the day for all of the fun. We also decided that Baronfest is an evolving holiday. We'll just add to the fun each year.
