You can tell this picture was early in the afternoon because Callie still had her bow in. Sigh. It didn't come home with us. We've lost more hair bows than we own I think. Anyways, the cotton candy was a HUGE hit (although the boys weren't happy that they only had PINK!)
The boys saw this jousting game from the parking lot and wanted to do it right away. it was hilarious - Jacob could barely hold the jousting stick it was so big! :)
The boys get a kick out of these cardboard cut-out pictures. They were serious about looking like pirates too!
This is Callie sitting on the entrance steps to a bounce house. She jumped with the boys for a bit, but then wanted her popcorn back (the girl LOVES popcorn). She REALLY wanted to bounce with it, but I wouldn't let her (obviously). So this was "her" negotiation. She sat on the steps of the bouncy with her popcorn and let the other kids' movements bounce her a bit while she continued eating!
They divided the kids up by age groups and had them search for gold coins on a treasure hunt. The kids could then redeem their "gold" for prizes. They came home with quite the loot. Most of it was dollar-store kind of stuff (a few things were broken before we got home that night), but we did get a great pool toy as one of their pickings. It's just about the fun of the hunt, right? :)
Jacob and Josiah were very good about "helping" Callie during her hunt, and not picking up coins for themselves. It was asking alot for them to be patient while the little ones went first on their hunt!
The rock climbing wall was a big hit. Made me a little nervous, but not these boys!
Little Jacob - he was hoping to make it all the way to the top! :)
I was actually surprised that Josiah wasn't more nervous - he's usually my very cautious one!
The kids had their first "ring pop" ever - how have they missed out on this joy - while we were waiting in line at the face painting table.
