Every year, our church hosts a fall festival event called “Streetfest” which is usually held in the parking lot/streets on the church campus. This year, though, we took streetfest on the road. We partnered with a local camp and welcomed hundreds and hundreds of people at a community center.
It was a great night but we’re all worn out. Just a few short months after doing this type of thing all the time and I’m clearly not used to it anymore 🙂 The kids had so much fun, though.
They had to come with me to set up in the afternoon, so they were ready for dinner when Daddy showed up. And with their favorite, too!
The soccer player, with his coach, and the butterfly.
The little soccer player was all stuff we already had…easy, which was so great. I know we could have done something more cutesy or elaborate, but you should have seen him kicking his ball all around the place. He was having so much fun! His first two word combination was “my ball” so what better thing for him to be?
Mia asked to be a butterfly weeks and weeks ago. She still wanted to be one today when it was time to get dressed, so that was good…(you just never know how quickly these kids will change their minds). I found the wings for really cheap and it’s awesome how easy tulle and pipe cleaners are to work with! She had a blast showing people her wings and fluttering everywhere.
So excited about the candy she was winning at the games!
The highlight of the night, though? All the inflatables.
Look at that huge smile on Finn!
Yep, I think he had a good time in that bounce house.
(Not pictured, Mia’s slightly bent butterfly wing from going down the giant inflatable slide so much :)…)
Halfway through the night, even with all the games and inflatables and fun stuff still happening, the kids were both trying to get into the stroller to lay down. So, Mark took them to the car to get jammies on and go to sleep in the car seats for the ride home.
Fun times. Glad we have a stay at home day tomorrow. I think we’re going to need it.
