Kids’ Day

14 07 2008

This was actually about a month ago, but I’m trying to play catch-up.
Every year, our city has a “Kids’ Day” at a local park the day after school gets out. They have lots of booths and free inflatable rides and fire engines and police cars. We haven’t gone for a couple of years, and it’s really grown.

As you can see, there are about a bi-jillion people there. (This picture doesn’t even show the half of the park over the hill that we didn’t even go to).

The park is just down from our house, so we hoofed it there instead of taking the car. Correction: I hoofed it, the girls rode their bikes, and the boys rode in the stroller.
Here are the big kids, waiting in line for an inflatable something-or-other. We waited about 20 minutes, and then didn’t go to any other ‘rides’. Not worth the wait. This day was the first really warm day we’d had that summer–which is definitely better than standing in the rain.

Eden sort of tackled the Fred Meyer bear without him (her?) being aware. She’s a hugger. (Eden, not the bear.)

Rainbow, pushing her ride.
Zack wearing his newly-made mask.
Colby, politely falling asleep in the stroller instead of screaming and wiggling while we waited for Eden to get her face painted. Thank you, Colby!
