Making Memories - Carnival Part 1

Saturday we held a carnival for our grandchildren at our house and it was a rousing success. Of course hubby and I thought of ways we blooped and that it could have been better , but thankfully most of the kids were too young to even notice.  At first the weather was pretty iffy and after setting part of it up and then putting everything back inside the tent because of rain, the sun started shining again we were able to get it set up for a fun day.

Goodies bags for the grands prizes hanging on the fence. I got this idea offline, but will have to get that link later. 

The gumball machine filled with skittles and runt candy was a HUGE hit.  

Can't have a carnival without lots of treats .

Lots of prizes... 

one of the games...this sign was printed online and I realized too late that is says,
Bottle ring toss...oh well! lol 

My oldest son brought his popcorn machine and filled fun bags with popcorn.

Is this a fun photo or what? 

My sweeties 

The kids had so much fun playing games, getting faces painted along with tattoos.  

Keira always has such a sweet smile on her face.  

We drafted our daughter-in-law Colette to do the face painting and she did a great job! 

Our son-in-law Matthew with his boys 

Pretty little Ainsley and Kanaan 

Our youngest son Nathan having fun too.

Hope you enjoyed sharing in our fun day... Part 2 installment coming soon...:)
