Carnival time!

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Last night was the GL carnival! It rained hard all day and we were worried about the carnival. The carnival would have been a success due to pre-sales, but really, it's all about the fun. Luckily about 2:30 it stopped raining and stayed relatively dry the whole time. The weekday worked out great and the crowd was huge. We had purchased punch cards in advance that were good for food, games and rides. Hansen and Lillie were on their own and had a great time. Dance Arts had a dancing team that did great and was undercover in case it did rain. Anyhow, to the pictures:

Lillie with a bag full of prizes!

Hansen playing a football toss into the Gator game! You can tell from this picture that it was still a bit early, wet, and not so crowded...all those factors changed as time went on.

Some how my name was drawn to win a huge prize! Yup, we're winners! A birthday basket, cool! I tried to trade it with my friend Brian (see next picture) as he somehow won the golf basket. I think it was big no on his part...and my girls would have flipped.

Here is Brian. Yes he and I worked the second shift of the Corn Hole game. We had tons of fun both making fun of the name Corn Hole, and running the show. The line was never short as the kids quickly found out that we gave out good prizes for only one punch of the punch card...and by all means, Corn Hole is a fun game. Corn Hole...hahahaha. In the distance you can see the jumpy toys, dunk tank, putting course, tattoo booth, and many other great things for kids to get crazy with.

This picture was taken at the end of the evening. I liked that they let the kids color all over this part of the school with chalk. Very fun.

See you tomorrow.

Sounds like fun - glad it didn't rain the whole time. Congrats on winning that big basket! Trading it in would definitely have been a no no - look at those smiles!
