Children's Day was a huge success. We had about 140 people come by and share with us, including several new people.
This is Antony and Helen. Antony is in a wheel chair and rarely even comes to eat but made it down for Children's Day. He seemed to have a great time and even helped me keep the peace a couple of times during the movie.
Thanks to Kathy Elliott and the spring break group's inspiration, we did a cake walk. It was a HUGE success. They absolutely loved it but didn't really understand why the couldn't all have a cake. It provoked a lot of laughing from all of us.
Mural and Suyapa a couple of my favorite ladies
Jasmine decided to dress up as a clown and do some juggling for us. She cracks me up.
The bounce house was a hit as always.
Going over "the rules" before turning them lose on the carnival games. All of our games were leftover from a carnival Park Plaza did a few years ago and they were a huge hit.
Winning tickets at the game stations
Turning in their tickets for prizes.
This picture cracks me up because I sat their and refereed prize choices for a good hour.
It was hectic but everyone got their prize :)
David and Jenn brought their popcorn machine and everyone enjoyed their snack during the movie.
We ended the day with Daddy Day Camp (we tried a couple of options but that was the one that worked in the machine :) ). Everyone seemed to really enjoy it. They loved the concept of a movie, for sure, and we're going to try and do a movie night about once a month.
It was a huge success and a great blessing to watch everyone enjoying themselves and not having to worry about anything for at least a few hours.
