First stop was the bouncy castles. I am not sure at what point the kids will not love these, but I am guessing it will only be when it stops being "cool" . (Or whatever vernacular the kids will be using by that time ) I personal would still play in them if given the opportunity and the assurance I would not hurt a kids, or more likely hurt myself. But this is where we spent a good amount of time, just playing. It was great!

Next was the petting zoo. This one had really great pets, and we were able to get some carrots to feed to them. I did see one toddler eating the carrots himself, which who can blame him, carrots are great. They had of course goats, but also a donkey, small horse, lamas, and sheep. I think I ever saw a baby cow. Lauren really enjoyed feeding them carrots. The neatest animal was a large tortoise. He was really cool and moved through the bigger animals with great agility and speed you would not normally think a turtle could. Fun was had by all.

Now Lauren's turn
We walked down to Chick Fil A and had a great lunch, and played even more. Still not to be done, when we walked back to get our bikes, we discovered that Anna and Elsa were visiting from Arendelle. So of course we had to talk to them and get our face painted.
Gotta play with some chalk
Lauren's school had invited a group called Tot's Sports. They lead a small class on working with basketballs. The kids were really cute and enjoyed following the instructions.
We had a nice day and are grateful to live in a community that brings these thing in for kids. I think I will be sad when Cooper tells me he does not want to go anymore. I think that day is going to come sooner then I will be ready for.
