I'm no longer the PTO president this year (hallelujah!!), but I did agree to still be in charge of the school carnival.
I had most of the stuff from the past 4 years, just a little bit of tweaking here and there and a few new things, and then it's showtime!
The PTO provided a yummy dinner (so nice not to have to cook on a busy night like this), and then the carnival opened.
The kids all had to come get their (free) ticket from my ticket booth (it's cardboard - isn't it adorable?) to take around to all the games.
They got (free) cotton candy & snow cones, and we even had a big bounce house.
It was a great night, and I'm happy to say it's done until next year!
|Landon was a big help at the fish pond!|
|I roped my whole family into helping - Tanner & Dave did cotton candy, Akayla & Corina did the fishing pond, Adriana was babysitting but she helped set everything up, and Anna & Mariah watched the youngest 3|
It was really fun, and we got to know many of them a lot better.
I made bbq beef sandwiches for everyone, brought drinks & cookies, and we brought the paper products.
Everyone else brought a couple of side dishes.
We have some really great neighbors!
We were only missing 2 of our kids:
Anna was at a birthday party waiting for us to come get her..... and unfortunately with the busy-ness of the day she was kind of forgotten, and didn't get picked up until 3 hours later!!!
Akayla had the chance to go to Lagoon with her great group of friends, so we let her miss our block party!!
