Family Fun Day

Amanda's school offers a funfilled day at the school for the entire family to enjoy in the middle of the summer session. We spent the better part of a sunday doing art projects, making jewelry, applying tatoos, and seeing all our friends from the spring.

They had the Penguins penguin there to meet and greet the kids, wouldn't oyu know Amanda was so scared she was shaking, and wanted nothing to do with him. If you look closely in the background of the picture you can see baby head in the stroller looking curiously at the silly bird. He enjoyed it, not amanda.

The school set up a food booth with cotton candy, ice creams and lots of cool drinks. James certianly enjoyed himself.

Hey look, at the left of James you can see baby avi sitting in his stroller, I think he is eyeing that Cotton candy, better watch out James, he's gonna get you!

THere were therapy dogs, caricatures and pony rides, they had a train running on the street in front of the school (they closed off the street), they had a concert with Mr Joe Negry from Mister Rogers Neighborhood and the Purple Panda...did I mention the picnic food buffet complete with hot dogs, and all the appropriate sides...including watermelon!...it was so much fun we are all waiting (ok, not so patiently) for next year...Wonder if they will find a way to do something else...if not, hey it was a blast, and we are totally going to show up.

Ok, I really was there, I know there are no pictures of me, but I guess that's the fate of the photographer. Baby Avi was there too...I swear!

I totally understand that. My pictures never have me either. I think I am just gonna have to program myself to give the camera to my hubby every now and then.

i agree...perhaps I need a new memory card that will automatically insert me into each photo I take...pnly problem is people might think I never change my clothes...;)
