Church Picnic

The church that we have been going to since moving into the hotel was holding their annual picnic this weekend. Josh and I took the kids before church on Saturday and Caroline got to ride some rides.

Getting ready to ride the "kiddie" swings.

On the little Ferris wheel.

Feeling the wind in her face on the spaceships.

William is thinking about calling Gene Simmons to see if there is an opening in the band!

She played the duck game and took picking a duck very seriously.

Her prize, some sort of fish.

There were horse rides. She said that she wants to take horse riding lessons.

With dad on the scrambler. You have to click on the picture to get a closer look at her face, priceless!!

Will watching Dad and Sis on the scrambler.

Caroline decided that she wanted to ride the "big" swings. I was very nervous about letting her do it, but she was pumped and said she wasn't scared.

Josh took the stroller and my camera back to the van before church started. During that time Caroline begged me to let her go on the giant slide. I wasn't so sure about it but she really wanted to do it. So I decided to let her. She climbed all of the steps, sat on her burlap sack and pushed off. Because she doesn't weigh a whole lot she got going really fast and by the second bump she got a little airborne and her eyes got the size of saucers! I so wish that I would have had my camera and that Josh could have seen it because it was so funny. When she came over to me afterwards I asked her if she had fun and she said that it was really fun. I asked her if she wanted to do it again and she said no!

What an awesome picnic! I remember the big slide from my own childhood, and the feeling of the scratchy burlap sack on my legs. Looks like you all had fun. Will's so cute in his sun hat.

Sounds like you have an adventurer on your hands - yahoo! Those big spinning swings were/are my all time favorite ride.

Wow, our church picnic just means eating donuts outside...nothing quite so fancy and carnival-ish here. Lucky!

Great pics! So funny that Lukas loves the big slide with the burlap sack, but won't get on anything like those flying swings that Caroline likes...

What fun! Caroline is quite adventurous and Will is quite silly!!!

F-U-N! For some reason I thought Will would be on the scrabbler too. He seems to have no fear! Kelly F
