Tailgate party! Elementary school style.

Eliza's school hosted a back to school 'tailgate party' last night.

The activities included bounce houses, a rock wall, a dunk tank and face painting (to name a few).
(Eliza's stupid human trick,
blowing massive spit bubbles
as previously recorded here:)
"Good evening Madame."

We enjoyed dinner on the green,
(apple slices for the Queen.)

as well as cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones.
What a feast.

Parenthood looks different having entered the "elementary school phase." As Andrew and I chatted, it took us a minute to 'calculate' how many years of "this" we had ahead of us. The potential number made me happy.

Eliza's favorite stop was to the "crazy hair" station.

As for me, I liked the music. Eliza and Henry were "busting a move" from the time we let them out of the car...

and they continued to shake their groove thang back into their seat belts.

Wasn't it just yesterday I was doing the same thing? Enjoy each little moment. L
