Fall Carnival

Friday night I joined my Eric, Sarah, my grand boys and Lauren, a friend, at the Fall Carnival at Jared's school. It was very busy with lots of people playing games and milling around. When you first came into the gym there was a climbing wall. Jared got right on it working his way to the top. After that we made our way around the gym playing games like bowling with a pumpkin, Slinko, ball toss among many others. There was pizza, nachos and soft drinks for sale along with popcorn and candy. I ran into a former co-worker from Hefner Middle School and visited about our grandkids who happened to be friends. About that time one of Jared's friend paid money to have him taken to jail. The cowboy tied a rope around his wrist and took him into a corral where he had to stay until he was bailed out. He eventually got out on good behavior. After that we went outside on the playground where they had a cakewalk, an air bouncer and lots of other games and of course the playground equipment.
Jared and Jordyn got to decorate some mini pumpkins and later Jordyn did his own share of climbing on the monkey bars. Eric got into the act by trying to climb the wall.
Lauren and Jacob spent time hanging out with friends and seeing forme
r teachers. Lauren got her face painted and later while having dinner at Braums a little girl thought she was a kitty cat. :) Jacob tried his best to have a good time in spite of the fact that it was a kids carnival. Sarah cheesed it up in the pics and then we headed home. I had a great time just hanging with my boys and my kids.


  1. Your grandkids are beautiful and Eric looks so happy. Life is good at our age!

  2. It sure is! Eric's a great dad! It's fun watching him parent and making fun of him while he does it ;)
