Waterslides and Weddings

Posted By on Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 10:26 AM

Any other weekend, Mike Carpenter would have won "favorite county commissioner" for officiating my friends' Robin and Bill's wedding. (Congratulations, you guys!)

But there was no way he could compete with this:

Yep, that's County Commissioner Steve Mulroy at the Mid-South Peace & Justice Center's Bands Not Bombs Saturday.

In addition to all the cute bands and the water balloon fight, there was a waterslide that the kids were just loving. Adults were allowed on "as long as they don't hurt any of the kids," said Peace & Justice Center head Jacob Flowers, but I think most of the adults were busy, you know, watching bands, chatting, drinking beer.

And then, while I was talking with Mulroy and Church Health Center public relations manager Marvin Stockwell, a challenge was issued.

And really, who can resist a challenge? Obviously, not Marvin, me, or Mulroy.
