Spring festival is always a ton of fun and a huge fundraiser for Dane's school. This year Kevin was teaching his night class so I had to go at it alone. It was pretty packed, so I was stressed that I was going to lose Jace in the crowds, because he likes to run away fast in public events. I barely saw Dane the entire evening, he met up with a few friends and they were running around together. I'd only see him if he had run out of tickets or was needing money for a snow cone or popcorn. Ha. So, I didn't get many pics of him. I did make him and his friend Chance take a quick picture when I ran into them despite their best efforts to avoid me and my camera. They are like teenagers trapped in elementary bodies. Jace was a huge handful, I hate to paint the picture in a negative way of my sweet boy. But, it's our reality right now... he is a crazy handful especially in places like this. So, it was a lot of work keeping up with him. I ran into a couple mom friends and they were lounging in chairs while their 3rd graders did their thing, relaxing and enjoying the mom conversation and their drinks. I don't think they envied me one bit as I was a sweaty mess, frazzled and on the brink of losing my mind. :) We had some good laughs about it.
But, Jace had so much fun and Dane enjoyed having the freedom to run around without me hovering. Good Times!
Whew!! Dane really needed a haircut!
Towards the end of the evening we still had a ton of tickets left, so the boys did the candy/cake walk several times to try and win a treat for the way home.
