After lots of chores here at the farm...who wouldnt enjoy a party?
The neighborhood that we moved into throws a party every summer. They have community businesses that set up tables and offer helpful tips about irrigation systems, conserving pastures, noxious weeds, etc. The tips were so interesting that even S carried on some good conversations.
They had volunteers that grilled burgers and hot dogs for lunch.
They even had little bags of chips. I heart chips. (even if they are baked)
Dont let J fool you. He really was having a good time.
The kids did some bouncing.
And some bounce falling.
Then it was time to get shoes back on.
So that they could get in line to have their faces painted.
This is what S did while we waited in line.
For as much as G doesnt enjoy bugs.....
It surprised me when he chose a spider for his face.
J went with an awesome chinese dragon.
K was in line with us, but she felt so badly for this little boy that was behind her in line...he was waiting so patiently for his turn, but you could just see him vibrating to have his turn....she let him go ahead. And then she just decided there were too many younger kids waiting...so she chose to pass on the face painting all together.
G got to take a ride around the place.
After that we decided to take a minute and hang out in the shade. G was clearly enjoying himself.
And after he was done keeping the beat(his words) he of course, had to make friends with the DJ. So, what was meant to be a little break in the shade before heading home, turned into a much longer break where he learned all about being a DJ.
Who am I to stand in the way of that?
