I'm having a senior {bowl} moment.


So I am going to blame this incredibly late post on having a senior moment today. I completely forgot about blogging until now, so...oops.

However, I already knew what I was going to post about today, so that makes things a little easier. I can hear my mother nodding and muttering something about how a little organization really does pay off and how she has been trying to make me as retentive as she is for years. Well, it's not going to work, Mom. Except for maybe in my blogging.

Anyway, back to the post at hand.

There were a few things that we wanted to do before moving. Spending as much time with family was at the top of that list so when my mom invited us to an event being held at her school, we jumped at the chance. It was a children's "festival" of sorts that was sponsored by the Senior Bowl committee. There were jumpy slides and obstacle courses, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon animals, music, crafts, and food. The best part? Every single bit of it was free to the public. Yeah, we were so on that.

My brother and sister-in-law brought my niece as well so Canon got a chance to see his Bebe, Uncle Wread, Aunt Morgan, and cousin Anderson all at once. Oh, and I did too so that was nice.

As you know by now, Canon and Anderson love each other so much. They laugh and play together so well and we like to encourage that as much as possible. At this particular event, as we stood in line to get Canon's face painted, they danced to the music and had so much fun that people around them were beaming at the sight. 

Why yes, we do raise entertainers. No, it isn't on purpose.



Canon patiently waited in line for almost an hour just to get his face painted. The boy loves a painted face. During that hour, he never wavered. He wanted to be Batman from the start. Because who doesn't want to be Batman.



Don't let this face fool you. He was stoked, but he was also in character. He was Batman, after all.


After the petting zoo, a little playground action, and some craft activities, it was time for a snack. Apparently Batman was feeling a little left out of the joke.



Or maybe he was wishing he had just gotten chips instead of a hot dog.



When Batman eats, he tears up his food. Snarl and all.


My mom and her grand-babies. We couldn't get them all to smile at once, but trust me when I tell you they were all having fun.


Events like these are one thing I am going to miss about living close to family. This was an event held after school one day that we were all just able to pop in and participate together. I am so glad we got this chance, though, before we left. 



I hope you have a nice night and I'll be back tomorrow with some Wordless Wednesday fun!
