National Children's Day

Now that Spencer is a very good reader you can't get anything past him. He reads EVERYTHING!!!
He was looking at the calendar yesterday and noticed that today was "National Children's Day". I asked him what he thought that meant and he replied that is was a day to celebrate with your kids and do something fun. I then asked him what he would suggest we do and he immediately came up with Incredible Pizza. Seeing as the other children in our home agreed it was a fun thing to do, how could we refuse?
We started the day off with a walk by our neighbourhood. They just finished making a big overflow drainage bayou and we wanted to see what else was down there.

Well it was a kids dream.........a bunch of huge hills of dried mud that were hard and you could walk on them. They climbed and explored. The dog got stuck in the mud briefly and Sydney stepped in some thick mud and lost her shoe for a minute too. That made her really happy :(

They would climb to the top and sing "I'm the king of the castle and you're the dirty rascal." I don't know where they got that from as I certainly didn't climb up first and sing it to them. lol

They had a blast at Incredible Pizza and Spencer must have eaten 12 pieces of pizza.
We had to stop and eat three times and were only there for about 4 or 5 hours. They really enjoyed the games as usual too. Poor Caden was exhausted and fell asleep laying in his chair with his head on my knee.
I don't know how we will top this one next year.

Sounds like a great way to celebrate Children's Day with the kids. You two adults enjoyed the "Mud Thing" too, right?
Notice you won't find a Teens and Older day to celebrate on the calendar. LOL Enjoy them while they are young.
