FRES Carnival 2016--Part I

The kids' school had their spring carnival in mid-May. We went a little early to set up the Cub Scout table. We got there as things were starting and just barely had the table set up in time.

The recruitment effort was successful--we had eight interested people give us contact information.

My son was eager to get to the fun stuff, so we headed off to buy tickets for the various games. The first thing he wanted to try was an inflatable obstacle course.

He ran the course four times. Three of the times I remembered to clock him. His fastest time was eighteen seconds (or, literally, eighteen Mississippis). These courses are always a favorite with him.

The other big hit was the rock climbing wall. Again, he tried it four times to see how high he could climb. His first ascent wasn't too high, but he improved as the day wore on.

Getting the harness on!

My daughter decided to try it as well. She didn't get as high but had a great time anyway.
