Fall Fair 2013

If all goes as planned, I will have a Fall Fair post every year for the next 10 years!  

The school that we have chosen for Shyla for Kindergarten hosts an annual Fall Fair as their major fundraiser.  Even though she's still in Preschool, we decided to go out, have so much, support the school, and get her even more pumped about going there.

We had a blast and, although we weren't sure what to expect, we were not disappointed!

We started out with dinner at Panera.  Yumm!  Then we headed over and were shocked to see that this is a real, legit fair!

It was $2 per adult to get in, kids were free but still got a hand-stamp.  Everything else cost tickets, we spent about $40 which is a lot for us, but knowing it supports a great school makes that easier to handle.

There were two jumping castles.  As per normal, Shyla was hesitant until she got everything figured out (where did she get that trait from?) and Harper was not!  There was a cake walk but we didn't win.  The teachers from each department put on a talent show which was hilarious!  When the Kinder and 1st teachers were performing (Put a Little Love in your Heart) Shyla said, "they look like great teachers!"

Then we rode some rides.  The girls rode the train and all four of us rode in the spinning bears of death.

We must be the coolest parents ever!  We used the last of our tickets to get snow cones for the girls at 9PM!  And they got to put on their own syrup!

And they danced.  And danced.  And danced.  They danced so much they eventually scared these two little boys off the dance-floor.  (PS - I love this picture because it looks like they might be doing a choreographed dance.  They're not - but I can see them doing that within the next few years!)

We look forward to many more Fall Fairs with the new "family" we are joining next year!
