Faith quickly headed over to the snack bar and spent $.25 on a pack of fruit snacks. I think it was a good choice.
If you thought diving for dollars was an interesting use of tax dollars, this one really got me. We'd never participated in the afternoon "Haystack Dive" over at the city park. The kids got quite a bit of loot at the city's Easter egg hunt, so we decided to give this a go.
Here's how it works. Once again, by age group, the kids get a chance to run at top speed onto a giant tarp covered in hay to search for candy and trinkets and such. This is Bethany's (bottom right) age group right as the siren went off signally the start of the feeding frenzy.
I wish I could walk away from this post right now and not make the next comment I'm about to make. But I can't.
To the parents of the 3-6 year old group: You should give your kids a little more credit. They are more than capable of picking candy out of straw by themselves. They don't need your help and you're probably already damaging their self-esteem by not letting them do things for themselves. Oh, and if they are too young to pick candy out of straw by themselves, then they don't really care about the activity so why bother.
My apologies. See, I should have left well enough alone.
