Saturday was a beautiful day, and we had lots of activities planned outside. Lincoln was super surprised that his sweet Kindergarten teacher came to his soccer game. He loves Mrs. Bailey so much, and he couldn't believe she was there to cheer him on! All of the boys on our team recognized her right away, and she was like a celebrity! Best Kindergarten Teacher EVER!!!!
The Bowie Fall Festival was in the afternoon, and we were ready! Mommy worked a shift (or two) as a carnie at the duck pond game, then we all met up to have fun! The boys loved the big inflated slide. Coach Wes was in charge of the slide, and he might have let them have a few extra slides. He commented that he was so amazed at what a good big brother Lincoln was being. Linc always made sure to help Beau with the big step and made sure Beau was keeping up on the ladder. He never left his little brother behind. So much sliding fun!
Of course the boys wanted to go in the crazy blown up ball thingy . . . the line was long, but they waited it out with the entire Ninjas soccer team. Seriously Lincoln, Canon, Nick and the rest of the team were all in line for the super popular "ride". The boys were all super nice to include Beau while they waited. Lincoln worked hard to power his way down and back. That looked hard!
When it was Beau's turn, he didn't have as much strength to go as fast. Lincoln ran to help push, and his soccer and school friend Nick ran to help too. Such sweet guys! Nick had to leave to take his turn, so Pops assisted as well. Beau loved that he got to be like the big boys!
Off to the next thing, holding hands like sweet brothers do.
Straight back to the inflatable slide . . . that was definitely the favorite. Again Coach Wes might have given them a million extra slides. Mommy had fun talking with Mrs. Coach Wes (importantly also know as Natalie!), and the boys loved the slide again.
We took a silly picture with a happy scarecrow and a mean pumpkin man. Beau made me take the picture three times to make sure he was making his meanest face . . . sigh!
When the boys learned that there was a Haunted House, they were sure we needed to check it out. Ummm, Mommy doesn't really like Haunted Houses, ok? The mom in charge of the Haunted House took one look at our little group and said we should announce, "No scary stuff" as we went through. As soon as the "scarers" heard that, they happily took off their masks and gave us high fives and silly faces. Such nice older Bowie kids to give us a break . . . the boys loved their first Haunted House experience! But we all held hands with a death grip!!!!
We headed back to the carnival part of the Festival, and it was just a great set up, great fun, great weather, and great event. Bowie is the best!
Our last game was the strong man, and Lincoln did his best to hit the hammer super hard.
Of course, Beau had to be super strong too.
Best Bowie Fall Festival EVER! We have been for the last couple of years even though we weren't at Bowie yet, and this one was the most fun. Thanks to all of the coordinators and my fellow volunteers for making this event so great! Also thanks to Nana and Pops for helping take pictures when my phone wasn't cooperating!
