Kid's Mix...



We took the boys to this outdoor event (Kid's Mix) sponsored by a local radio station last Saturday. The radio station came up with a heavy advertising campaign, bombarding the airway with Kid's Mix ADs set to an upbeat party track every 10-15 minute. We totally played into their little plan, drove all the way across town, and opened our wallet. That's right, sometimes even the Playa gets played.

$6.00/each to get in--under 3 free ($24 total).



But that included a free petting zoo...



Yeah, just the one horse. But the entry fee also included free Celeb. Photo Ops...





Yeah, just a stranger in a suit. But they also had free water games...



Yeah, those are squirt guns. They got to play with them until they squirted out all the water, then it was another kid's turn.

They also had a rock wall, mini golf, train rides, fair rides, carnival games, blow-up jumping things, food, drinks, etc, but all that you had to pay for, starting at the low low price of $4 per child...

(Oh, we don't have any other pictures.)

On the way out, we got a sweet video of a groundhog digging his hole...

I clean my house the same way the ground squirrel does. I hate it when I get "played". It is seriously hundreds of dollars to go to the Western Idaho Fair but ever year we go.

Anthony totally looks like Poncharella in those glasses. He's definitely a playa!

Looks like the groundhog was the best attraction at the event. Suckers!

I have been out of the blogging world too long. I missed a lot. You could recoup some of your expenses by selling that video. Worth $24, i checked it out for you.
