It was chilly that morning, but by the time field day started for my three, it had turned into a beautiful day.
I kept walking back and forth across the field so I could take pictures of the twins, and then of Pierce.
It was fun having all three of them participate. Although I have to say, the school was nice enough to let the twins participate previously even before they were students.
Plunger race. I missed the leaking hat race that they had last year. I hope it makes a reappearance for next year.
Rolling a tire isn't so simple when it weighs more than you do.
Poor Reid. His shirt, as you can see, was quite roomy on him. I had put on sunscreen before he left for school, but that was when he was in regular clothes. They gave out the shirts at school, and his sagged off his shoulder on one side, leaving him with a sunburn on his shoulder.
Don't they just look like they get along? Like they'd never bicker over silly things like who put whose shoes in the wrong place?
The Homestead Creamery ice cream truck was there giving free ice cream to everyone. I had the blueberry cheesecake. Divine.
Pierce refused to get wet all day. He wouldn't even do the big waterslide. A 5th grader (who had his field day in the morning, before it had warmed up) told him the water was the coldest water in the world. No amount of begging on my part could get Pierce to do the waterslide.
Somehow, I think he still had a fun day.
Readers, did you like field day when you were a kid?
