This past weekend

This past weekend was a ton of fun. We took Aracely roller skating which has quickly become one of her favorite activities. During the skating fun they play a few games- well we always play. Some of the games are harder than others because she skates between 2 people holding our hands- well the game was limbo. So I knew she could do it because of her height but to stay on her feet alone was another story. Throughout the night we had worked on her skating by herself and she was doing really great. So she would hold Paul's hand and skate up to the limo stick and he would let go and she would walk her little skates underneath. Well she was successful but she also didn't have to bend down. The next round- again she made it. Woohoo she is doing great! There are about 10 or so of us playing. Ryan and I are playing (competition, I told you!!!) and so are some other little girls. So the next round- a few girls knocked out but the three of us are still in. Then they move the bar about 4 notches down. One little girl out, then 2, then 3, now Aracely's turn- and she makes it. Yippee! Now it is my turn- aghh I am too big and hit the bar. Ryan's turn- he makes it. Now it is the 2 of them. She makes it and he didn't!!!! She won a free snow cone for making it- I can't believe it, she did so great.

Then later in the weekend we take her to Way Fruit Farm for a pumpkin and a hayride. While we were there she had her face painted, she played in the bunny barn, she rode this cool tractor ride that I wanted to ride in, we went to the pumpkin patch and picked out 2 pumpkins. And on our way back to the main building we saw all these men creating a perimeter. Weird huh? Well the men were making room for Sarah Palin who was on her way through to the State College airport and her daughter wanted a pumpkin. So they get off the bus, get a pumpkin, take a few photo's and shake hands with some people and leave. She wasn't there more than 15 minutes, it was quite different for a Saturday afternoon. Aracely didn't understand what was going on so my mom just told her that she was a movie star. She was much more excited by this. =)

I promise Sarah Palin is in this photo, it's just a little bit too far for my camera on my phone.

And doesn't this ride look like fun?
