Water Fight Weekend
This weekend te went down to Montrose for there annual water fight. On Friday night we went to a BBQ and a hayride. The kids played volleyball, air hockey, and just visited and then at night fall we all jumped on trailers for the hayride, which incidentally there was no hay on, so I guess it was just a trailer ride hehe. They had three trailers full of kids two with teenagers and one for kids under 13.
This is Alyssa getting ready to go. Notice she is sitting between two boys :)
Once Sean found out she was sitting between two boys, he decided that was the trailer he needed to be on, and that I should ride with with the little kids. It was a really nice hay ride, we visited and sang. However not to kind on the backside with no hay, so I stood up on the way back.
The next day was the water fight day. We all went to the park where they had large tents set up. Which were very nice to sit under during the day, because it was so HOT!! They had a bump and jump set up for the little kids as well as a little wading pool that they all thoroughly enjoyed!
Here is a picture of Shelbi and Hayden in the bump and jump
Here is a picture of Hayden enjoying the cool clean water, however by the end of the day...not so clean :)
The young kids played a variety of different games. They played dodge ball with water balls and different relay races. Alyssa was in a race where here and another girl had to sit on a platform, and be carried by four guys who had to race down to the other end of the field, drop them off, and then race back.
Here is a picture of Alyssa and Lucinda getting ready to be carried away
Here they are carrying the girls...Hand on sweetie!
After this they all headed over to a water slide where they all had to race down and run to the finish line. After the youngkids were done with the race they let everyone try it out. And boy was it fun!! Here are pictures of Shelbi and Maria on the water slide.
All in all it was a really fun day. We came home Saturday night, but Alyssa got to stay the night with her new friend Lucinda, and go to church there on Sunday. It was a good meeting, and an uplifting weekend.
