Alex's Field Day

Alex's Field Day was Friday, May 23rd, which was the same day as Addy's. Matter of fact, Addy's Field Day ended at 9:30 & Alex's started at 9:45. Thank goodness their schools are just a couple of miles apart.

Nick took the morning off of work for a special dad event at Alex's Field Day.

That event was the Dad Dash & it was the official start of Field Day!

For the Dad Dash, the kids & their dads ran a short race, probably about 50 yards.

Looks like Alex took off without his dad though, lol!

 All the kids got medals but Alex was honestly the first one to cross the finish line!

After the run, they had a sack race & a tug of war competition. But for some reason, Alex did not want to participate in either of those events. I'm not sure what was going on. He might have just been being shy since there were parents there, or he & his best friend had gotten into a 'fight' the day before & weren't getting along, or a girl in his class had said that she won the dad race & that could have upset him. (Because he's just a little competitive, lol!) I really don't know what it was. When I asked him he said he didn't want to do those events because he's "not very good at them."

After that, the kids had snack. And then immediately following snack, they had popcorn & snow cones!

And then they got to ride this super cool train!

Alex's field day was an all day event but Nick & I couldn't stay all day long. So we left after Alex rode the train.

 When I picked him up at the end of the day, Alex said that they had also jumped in a bouncy house, played with water guns & gone on a giant blow up water slide!
