Winterfest!!

Last Friday Ty's school had something called Winterfest. They had two big blow up things for the kids to play on....one was one they go into and jump and the other was a HUGE obstacle course that they had to climb through and then go down a slide at the end. They also had tons of games and activities for the kids. An armband was $10 (all the money they collected went back into the school) and they also sold tickets for $.50. The armband was for the blow up things and also covered all the games. The tickets were for the games (in case you didn't buy the armband), the food and for the raffle. They have two big hallways, and each hallway had fun things for the kids. Then some of the classrooms were set up for different things you could purchase/win. One was for a cake walk, and another room was set up with things called Jazzy Jars.....they were jars that the students made that were filled with things and you could purchase. The library was also set up for people to play bingo. Also, they have a sheriff that is there just about every day (not because the school needs that, I think she is mainly there to help with traffic during pick up times) and she was walking around and "arresting" people......they had a pretend jail set up and it cost 4 tickets to set someone free....it was hilarious!!! As for food, Chick-fil-a was a sponsor of Winterfest and they provided the dinner. You got a chicken sandwich, bag of chips and a drink for $5. We didn't order any because we didn't decide to go until Friday afternoon. BUT, they had some super yummy food set out.....they had popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy, nachos & cheese and fried oreos! The nachos & cheese were sooooo yummy. And the snow cones were amazing!! We didn't try the fried oreos.....the smell from them cooking was just nasty!! People said they were good, though. Ty had such a great time.....he saw 3-4 of his classmates and was playing in the gym with them (where they had the blow up things set up) and just had a blast! That made the whole night totally worth it. Chase even had fun! The only downside to it all was the siblings/older kids that were there.....they were SO rude and running through the halls and cutting in front of the smaller kids. I saw several smaller kids come close to being knocked down by the bigger kids.....just sad.

Ok, on to the pictures!! The first few are of Ty on the huge blow up obstacle course.

Up the ladder.....



The slide.....



Whee!!!!



I wish I would have gotten a better pic of this thing.....but it was so big it was hard to get back far enough for a pic! LOL I also tried to get a pic of him in the blow up castle, but it was too dark inside.

He got his hair spray painted!!







He also played a game called "Pie in the face"...they put Redi-whip on a plate and put a small candy valentine heart in it and you had to use your mouth to find it.



They also had face painting.....



And, the Chick-fil-a cow!!!



He played lots of other games, but I think his favorite was playing in those blow up things. I'm so glad we decided to go!!!!
