Our village had its annual luau last week. The kids look forward to it all year.
They gave us leis, sunglasses, and hair flowers. I love that Chris chose a pink lei.
Even though I don't love this picture (it looks like I'm about to fall and squish Josh), I had to include it. I'm almost never in pictures, since I'm usually taking them. But I want my kids to remember that I was there, too!
For every activity the kids do, they get one prize ticket. Then they get to trade them in for a cool prize, anything from a tiny toy to an alarm clock.
The kids especially had fun watching the guys blow up these bouncy buildings earlier in the day. They kept running back into the apartment to get a drink of water, and to tell me they were helping set everything up. And they even "helped" to test out the bouncy slides. Such useful children.
The luau almost always gets lightninged-out, but that's kind of expected here in the summer, in The Swamp.
