After the game we made our way to Prospector Park where the girls were helping with the carnival for the Emery family that I posted about a couple of days ago. There were lots of people there and the kids loved playing the carnival games and jumping in the bounce houses.
Most of the kids rode the mechanical bull. Bean Dip was especially good at it, but Curly was upset when I told them to up the speed a little and he fell off.
They had a huge silent auction and I just couldn't resist putting in a couple of bids. It is such a good cause! Anyway, I won two things, a Dr. Seuss set for $15 and a birthday party from Menchies! I'm thinking that might be the perfect thing for Crafty's birthday next month. It makes my life a little easier, but her only dilemma will be which 10 friends to invite.
Even the Dog Walker found something he was interested in buying, a big indoor light set for Christmas! It was only $10 and he felt like he got a great bargain. You know how he feels about his light displays...
The high school teams gave great support to this event too, and we watched the Football team and the Baseball team in a tug-of-war. After a while the football team performed the Hauka and that was really fun to watch. We ate lunch from Texas Roadhouse and just enjoyed the feeling of being part of something good.

At least the football team is.
They won, by the way.
