When I was young I remember wondering why we celebrated Mother's Day and Father's Day, but there was no special day for kids. Well now that has all changed!
On Sunday we took the girls to the city for the Children's Day celebration. Balloons everywhere, all kinds of free food (for the kids, not the parents...I did sample a little anyway though!), puppet shows, live music, dance performances, finger painting, pony rides--everything a kid could want!
The girls had a wonderful time. Pookie especially enjoyed getting to meet her hero...
Curious George!
And Fig very much enjoyed the "frost your own cupcake" experience...a lot!
And of course we had to get a balloon--what child doesn't love getting a balloon?!
So with all the excitement of Children's Day and also our very fun/very busy Saturday (rummage sale, kite flying, picnicing) I'm quite seriously all tuckered out. How nice it is to now have a warm lazy week to wind down and relax!
