This year we had another gorgeous day for the school carnival. Riley was thrown into jail not too soon after we got there. She was a great sport about it despite finding out that the girl who put her in jail isn't often very kind to her in the hallways. Julia went on the ferris wheel with me. Every time we went around and started back up again, she'd say "We're going around again?!"
Both girls had their faces painted and their hair sprayed with neat colors. Julia chose a butterfly and Riley chose a tiger. They looked amazing!!! They jumped on the trampolines, played with friends, spent time doing a lot of games and were really happy. We asked if they wanted dinner but they didn't.
Come to 6:30pm and the line is insanely long. Girls are hungry, have spent all their energy running and playing and only want popsicles or cotton candy. Instead I shared that we could play the cake walk and try to win a cake. We went in the gym and played the game. I ended up winning so I chose a cinnamon streusel cake that I thought would be fun for the whole family to enjoy. The girls were mad. Riley just wanted cotton candy. Julia was way over-hungry and began crying and hitting. Her butterfly was streaking and itching due to the crying so we went inside the school to wash off what we could. She then cried harder that her face was completely purple. We made it home with lots of tears and screaming fits from Julia. Riley was crying from hunger and feeling bad that she had wanted the cotton candy. She had every right to want it. We just didn't want to spend $3 on it.
Once the girls had their faces washed, showers taken and eaten food, they were incredibly tired. We all crashed into bed and woke up much happier.
