Family Fun Day and Off to See the Wizard!

Have I mentioned how much I love our school?  Really, it’s just the best.  Always something fun going on.  Another school year is winding down, which means another Family Fun Day! 

It’s always a blast, and this year was extra fun…pony rides…

And Daddy in the dunk tank!

He was nailed with a dunk on his first time in, by one of his own sixth-graders!

Oh Liam…can I please eat your cheeks?

Chomp chomp chomp…love this boy!

We also had visits from firefighters, police officers, a ride in an antique fire truck and a ride on a city bus (major excitement!)

017

Not to mention face painting, popcorn, duck races, hotdogs, water games, and create your own hairbow!  All in 90-degree heat!  It was so much fun, but we were exhausted!

We also recently attended the performance of The Wizard of Oz, put on by the Sacred Heart Drama club.  Both Devon and my mom are involved with the drama club, so Seamus and Grace were lucky to have been able to watch many of the rehearsals during the school year.

Grace had been planning for weeks to wear her Dorothy Halloween costume to the show!

The show was just incredible, and the kids did a fantastic job, as they do every year.  Way to go, drama club!  Seamus and Grace can’t wait to join you in a few years!

You are right....your school does look amazing! Your Hubby is such a great sport for going in that dunk tank! All the activities look so much fun! So glad the show was a success!

That's a fabulous way to wrap up the school year! What fun indeed! Liam's cheeks are the yummiest....can't believe how big he has gotten! Adorable Seamus in the firefighter jacket. And I totally foresee Grace as Dorothy in a few years!!!

Your school does rock. That is serious family fun. Devon is such a good sport to get dunked. I am loving the firefighter Seamus picture. That is too cute. Can Grace be any more excited about being in her Dorothy costume? She is beaming. I am so glad you guys had a great time. I have to get the movie for Pres to watch. It was always one of my faves. Liam is as always edible!

What a fantastic day! Looks like the kids had soooo much fun.

The kids will remember that day for a long time to come. Well done.

Oh Emily--your family is just so beautiful and all the fun-filled things you do with the kids --i'm guessing that they all sleep at least 11 hours each night??? Oh i wish i could be 5 or 6 and visit all the cool places you guys do--again Emily--what a truly happy and beautiful family--say hi to your family for me

Yes, you do have the best school! Almost makes me want to move there, but I still think you guys should move here!! :)
Family Fun Day looks like such a blast! Oh my - I would stand in line to kiss on Liam's adorable cheeks!! He looks cozy in his new stroller! :) Wow - I can just imagine the excitement of riding in the antique fire truck and on the city bus . . . Simon and Jude would have been having the time of their life!
Grace is too cute wearing her Dorothy costume to the Wizard of Oz show! How awesome that her and Seamus got to see many of the rehearsals during the school year!
