We had our annual corn boil last Saturday. True, we hadn't had it in a couple years, but we're hoping to put the "annual" back into the event. Corn season snuck up on us, and so we whipped the party together in only a few days.
What started as an "adult" party has graduated to a family friendly event. We phoned up all the young families we could think of, and even with the short notice, a lot of them were able to be with us. I counted more than 70 in all...which is mucho corno.
This time we set up in the back corner of our lot. It's not super far...we only have 2 acres. After the 104th trip to fetch forgotten items, bring little kids to the potty, get the phone, etc, it was plenty far. I got my exercise!
Remember how setting up a teepee for the kids was one of my summer goals? It didn't exactly happen. I think this is much better, though. This was our reading tent. The little girls claimed it very quickly, and I could hear much giggling from inside the white curtain.
The bubble station was also a big hit. There were some massive bubbles happening here!
That was a hungry crowd, for sure. It's never happened before, but we were very close to running out of food. Of course, that might be a certain little boy's fault! LOL
