We went to a family reunion on Sunday. It was nice and the kids had a great time. This year they had more planned children's activities than ever. My kids loved everything from the pinata to the HUGE playground near by. The also loved the peanut scramble - and loved to embarass their mother after the peanut scramble!
The object of the scramble was, if you get a colored peanut shell, you won a prize! Nick was a lucky winner. He went to claim his prize from a relative who was handing out the prizes. He won one dollar. He was SOOOO excited and immediately wanted to go to Wal Mart and buy a toy! I told him he needed a little more money than $1.00 to buy the toy he suggested getting.
In his 6 year old innocence, he went and asked the same relative if he could have some more dollars so he could buy something good! Everyone got a good laugh and Nick understood that one dollar was a great prize and he can save it and add to it.
