Family Festival!

Sunday, the 10th, was Boeing's Family Festival. The girls had such a great time. There was so much to do and so much to eat and in Peyton's case, so much to drink! When we got there we were all hungry so we went to all the different booths to get some food. They had Vegetarian Curry, Asian Chicken Sandwiches, Ribs, Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Caesar Salad, Corn on the cob, Watermelon, Yakisoba, Strawberry Shortcake, and Ice Cream Bars. It was ridiculous! We got a sampling of various things and then we grabbed some drinks out of a red wagon that was probably the size of two queen sized beds put together. I've never seen anything so huge! Peyton discovered soda. She REALLY likes it! Troy very generously started her out with diet Sierra Mist and then they moved on to diet Mountain Dew. Does anyone else see a problem with that???
We spent our time taking the girls on the bounce house/slides. They also had a mini-bumper boat ride, radio controlled cars that ran on a race track, Pony rides (Ryan was so excited, she got to ride Spotty. I don't know what Peyton's pony's name was), Air brushed tattoos (we even marked Peyton!), various carnival games, and way more I can't even think of. While we were standing in the VERY long line for the Pony rides, Peyton threw an enormous fit because she wanted more soda. Her fit was so ridiculous that Troy finally walked her back to the wagon and got her an orange soda. She proceeded to drink almost the entire thing by herself. Apparently we are not going to be having any more soda with her around!
The girls had a great day and we had so much fun spending time together as a family. That's been a hard thing to do lately so we'll take advantage of any opportunity we get!
(I can't find my camera charger and my camera battery died, so when I find it I'll post some pics!)
