Labor Day Weekend, continued

Before the money dig they had a bunch of different games for the kids. One game they tied a balloon around each of the kid's ankles and they had to go around and try to pop the other team's balloons. Zack spotted the bags of balloons long before the game started and was fighting me trying to get at them. When they finally explained the game and that it would end in all the balloons popped I knew I would have one sad toddler if someone popped his balloon, so we decided to sit that game out and take his big red balloon home.

He did, however, enjoy the donut eating contest. They tied powered donuts to a string and the kids had to eat them without using their hands. Zack had no problems when his donut disappeared, unlike the balloon.

and finally...Sunday night we had a DJ. Zack had a late nap, so we decided to let him stay up for a while at the dance. He didn't want to get off the dance floor all night. He would grab someone's hand and take them out to dance and when they were ready to sit down ,he would find a new partner and drag them out. Later in the night he was getting tired and wanted held, but still wanted to be on the dance floor. He would yawn and then tell me, I'm not tired, then continue to go from person to person enjoying the music and resting his head on their shoulder, until I finally took him home. I am excited to finally have a dance partner.

Zack was even successful at getting Ryan on the dance floor, something I've tried to do for years!

Sounds like you guys had a blast.

I can't get over how big Zack looks in that last picture. He is getting to be such a big boy.

Sounds like he had a great time dancing. Devin will do the same thing and say he is not tired and be yawning like crazy!

That looks like you guys had so much fun! I'm sure Zack is just going to love that even more as he gets older - how fun! Cute pictures!
