I would love to be doing some of the posts I did last week about great runs and fast paces, but that was last week. This week has been different. Rather than go on and on about how junky I have felt this week, I thought I'd post some pictures from Friday evening's School Carnival. That's right, people. Before we headed out of town for our awesome weekend, I worked a booth at the kids school carnival. To say these carnivals have changed since I was a kid would be an understatement. There were inflated obstacle courses, slides, and robot animals in a pen the kids could ride. Yes, you read that last part right. Slightly scary. There were also lots and lots of game booths, a cake walk, and a stuffed animal walk. I had the golfing, hole-in-0ne booth.
Now would be a good time to thank Brazen Racing for the training on how to set up a pop up tent. I helped set up 6 tents and was one of the few who knew the easiest way to go about it (thanks to Jasmin).Then we moved them to their spots, then carried tables out to each tent, then put all the games together and got organized, then the kids came, and the parents started spending money...big time. You could buy$10 wrist bands good for unlimited bouncy houses, but not good for any booths, which took tickets....lots and lots of tickets. Then there was food, drinks, shaved ice, face painting...more tickets. I was in awe. It was a kick butt fundraiser, I can tell ya that much!! Parents were buying tickets left and right. I cut my kids off at $25 plus a bag of all the quarters in the house, which was about another $15 worth...so they at least got to do everything once, and did the face painting and had pina colada shaved ice. If you looked close at the hotel pictures, you may have noticed Myles with something on his face. Now ya know.
