Last year was fun but considering that Lauren was 3, Caleb was 19 months old and spent most of the time in a stroller, and I was pregnant, this year was so much more fun. I even made a cake for the cake wheel. The kids started off in the bouncy houses. It was early so they got to jump without a time limit.Lauren got her face painted and it was on to some games.
Lauren takes a turn at T-ball.
After several attempts, Caleb decides the rules were not made for him and he figures out his own way to get the ball in! That's my problem solver.
And this is how he finished off the milk jugs when all his balls were used up.
Lauren is definitely getting the hang of carnival games.
The coolest obstacle course.
Lauren and Caleb did great.
Last year Lauren would not ride this train. Caleb was too little. This year Lauren still would not ride but Caleb couldn't wait. When the ride was over he wanted to go again. We told him we would after we ate. He cried and refused to eat. He pouted the whole time the rest of us ate.
When we went back, we asked Lauren if she was sure she didn't want to ride. She was SURE! Until her friends Caleb, Kyle, and Ann Marie came along. She said she would ride if they did. We had a playdate with them over the summer and Caleb is in her Sunday School class. Their mom is one of the teachers too. It was a beautiful day and so much fun running into some of the moms in the mom's group.
