our kids' school had their carnival fund-raiser on Friday night. The weather was really quite perfect - cool, with a slight breeze. The kids had tons of fun doing the jumphouse, face-painting, trampolines, playing in giant hamster balls in a pool, auctions, food and candy.
paddle boats and trains
on Saturday, we got to go on walks, do some yard work, eat donuts and then we cleaned up. After that, we drove to the city park and rented some paddle-boats and let the kids have a bit of fun. Then we went on a little train ride around the park.
it was lots of fun for the family and quite memorable.
after that, we tried a new burger place - the food was actually really good, but the price was way too much.
after we drove home, we relaxed and enjoyed the evening.
our son B was able to go to an NBA basketball game with his friends and he had quite a bit of fun.
good bye to friends
Sunday was church and meetings and dinner with friends. Our good friends are moving, so we ate one final dinner with them and played games and had a fun time.
One of the games our two families like to play is the sofa game. Everyone puts their name on a paper and then we draw names. If you draw your name, you have to re-draw. You then "become the person" whose name you drew. Then you sit boy-girl-boy-girl. You leave one extra space. The person to the right of the empty place calls a name. The person who has that then then sits in the empty spot; they also create the next empty spot. The goal is to get 4 in a row (or however many you decide depending on how many people are playing the game).
often, when we try to wind-down for the day, we've been watching The Office all over again. We only watched the episodes once or twice when they were on TV. So, it's been fun watching them again on Netflix. We are in the Robert California season.
