School Yard Bash

It was perfect weather for the annual School Yard Bash for Emily's elementary school.  The event was actually held at the middle school.  I didn't take any good pictures, but this is one of the kids enjoying the cupcakes we donated and then won back at the cake walk, along with their giant helium balloons.  They also had a pizza meal, a giant inflatable slide, mini golf, a DJ, face painting, hair coloring, a teacher watermelon race, a race car display and much more. 

I donated stuff for the cake walk and worked the entrance table taking money while Austin took the kids around.  We also bid on one of the themed silent auction baskets put together by donations from each classroom.  Emily really got into it and was absolutely set on winning the baking basket.  I was more interested in just bidding it up. :)  We didn't end up winning, but that's okay.  The Parent Connection group raised $1,300 with the silent auction and $4,100 overall.  The money is used for things like new playground equipment and funding field trips.
