A Carnival of coarse!!!!!
Next you would go to the "Duck Duck Goose" booth where you paid a ticket to play the infamous game with the 3 hooligans. You even got a pillow to pad your behind while you sat.
Next you were on to Taebers creation of "Throw the Ball". This time you paid a ticket to throw a tennis ball and knock over his construction of red cups and hidden inside if you knocked it down was a gumball that you got to keep.
This is Kai's next booth where you paid a ticket to go on the "Jumpity Jump". The kids put the big bean bag in between a chair and the couch and "jumpity jumped" until there hearts content. Until Kai had a small neighbor child who was over enjoying the carnival and she was sitting on the bean bag and he "jumpity jumped" her right onto the floor and she had to leave in tears. This photo was taken before the incident and Kai is doing his favorite pose.
There was also a "Basket toss" booth in which you took my nice pillows from the couch and tossed as many as you could into a basket, which I guess I failed to get a picture of.
Addi had the best booth of the day. She was selling her Valentines Day candy, one piece for one ticket. She had them all organized into colors and kinds. Very funny, I laughed out loud!!
After this we spent the afternoon making phone calls and inviting neighbors to come and enjoy and fun. The kids hosted everyone as they came to the carnival. I failed to get pictures after the chaos started but you will just have to imagine Kai in his element bossing everyone around, Taeber giving all his Valentines gumball away and Addi selling off her candy as she stuffed most of it in her mouth.
I have to say it was one of the funnest days we have had in this house in a long time. And I still have the 3 children all in one piece!!!! Your welcome to come to the carnival anytime. They wanted me to take pictures so they could remember how they set it up and what they did at each booth so they could do it again next time they had a day off of school.
So what did you do with your day off of school???
