Field Day








The camera's battery died and so I didn't get a picture of either the bouncy house, cake walk (BR won a cake!), or one summer game that I made a mental note to re-use at some point: all you need is a kiddie pool with a bit of water in it, some marbles and some large plastic cups.  You dump the marbles out in the water and the kids stand in the pool and have to figure out a way to pick them up with their toes or feet and drop them into a cup they are holding.  It's easy, it can keep five or six kids occupied for a good long time, it's relatively quiet (as compared to the donut wrestling--yikes), safe (or at least I never saw anyone lose their balance, anyway) AND it keeps you nice and cool!

I think we should get some inflatable donuts for the family reunion and then sit back and watch the kids go nuts.

It was a school field day.

The marble pool was supposed to also have soap bubble in it - makes it even trickier!!
