We had a fun day today up at Steve's parents house. The community in which they live had a winter carnival. The majority of people who live in the community are retired couples who are living the good life and they bring their grandchildren to share in the festivities. We went last year and had a great time. Word must have gotten out that it was so much fun because the crowd was VERY large today. Fortunately, we had stopped to eat on the way. The kids NEEDED to eat. Unfortunately, Steve's parents had hoped to eat hot dogs at the carnival and the crowd was so big, they ran out of food. Come to think of it, they never ate after we got back to their house either. (You guys must be starving)
We did have fun though.
The kids got balloon wands. The balloon guy reached over and signed Noah's cast before we knew what was happening and he signed it "ballon guy" Complete with his career likelihood MISSPELLED. Kind of funny.
Steve LOVED holding the balloons while the kids were drinking their hot chocolate.
The kids also made a snowman thermometer craft
Got their faces painted
Saw many pretty impressive snow sculptures.
We also went on a horse ride but I'm saving that picture for next Friday.
When we got back to Steve's parents' house, the kids were ready to play. I spent some time time sharing my recent blog entries and conversed with Steve's Dad about how to make movies on his digital camera while Noah played games on the new laptop.
While all this was going on, I guess none of us noticed that we hadn't heard from AA in awhile. When he was finally discovered, he had not only "flowered" in his underwear, but had also discovered some very pretty nail polish. He knew he had gotten busted BIG TIME! Don't his nails look lovely?
So now we had a shark on one cheek from the carnival and a beautiful line of nail polish on the other.
We had a fun ride on papa's tractor before we had to head home so Daddy could go sing at a restaurant.
I'd say we fit a lot in for a quick trip up North. We are getting an "arctic blast" as I write this according to the weather forecasters so I'm glad we got outside today. Tomorrow we have forecast wind chills of -10 to -20 degrees. How's that Florida heat, Dad?
Have great Sunday.
