The next Olympian

Roo had field day a few weeks ago and it was stupendous. Let me time travel back 20 years to when I was in third grade and what my field days look liked.
We ran 100 meter dashes, did the triple jump or long jump, some relay know...track and field stuff.

Man, was I missing out. Riley's field day consisted of water and plungers and chairs with wheels and more water....Don't get me wrong, I am pro-sports and athletes--but Roo's field day let the kids just be kids.
Not to mention, we live in Vegas. If you are gonna have a field day the end of May when it's a million degrees water HAS to be involved.

I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to jump in and play the games with her...maybe I'll have her teach me this summer.

The awesome plunger game. She had to fill up a bucket with water carried in a plunger. Let's hope they were new.

The water fight. She's preparing to do some damage.

I like the plunger game. And I agree, that is the way a field day ought to be.
