Jake's end of the year picnic

I took the afternoon off to go to Jake's end-of-the-school-year picnic. It threatened rain all afternoon, and the temperature was a bit on the low side, but that did not stop the kids from having a good time. Water fun was a big part of the afternoon, with super soakers and water balloons.

One fun game was finding a piece of gum in a pile of powdered sugar. Apparently, this is a tradition for the third grade teachers. It's kind of like bobbing for apples....Here is Jake....



He can't have bubble gum due to his orthodontia, so he ended up with pop rocks....



It looked like so much fun that Belinda (Jake's best friend's mom) and I had to get into the action.....

Unfortunately, Jake missed the instructions to not inhale. So, he spent about 5 minutes coughing after breathing in a bunch of powdered sugar.

All in all, a fun time was had by all. The best part...it was the last full day of school.
