Evening of FUN with MOM!

Last Thursday we attended our Stake's "Evening of Fun with Mom" activity. The cultural hall was set up into different stations with the majority of the stations being activities active! We divided into groups with our daughters and the first station we went to was Four Square. It was so much fun! The girls were cute trying to "school" their moms on how to play and the moms were sweet in letting the girls do so. Ü
After a few minutes we rotated to the 'not-so-active' but definitely yummy sundae station! We made ice cream sundaes with all the fixins' and sat at a table to complete a "How Well Do You Know Your Mother/Daughter" questionnaire. Sariah and I compared answers and it was obvious that we knew each other quite well. Ü
After the timer rang we headed over to the next station where we played hopscotch, marbles and jacks. Ü Sariah & Madysen stuck to hopping while I finished up my sundae. Ü
Next, we scooted on over to the hula hoops which has been a recent favorite of my girls. They love to hula hoop and Mady is surprisingly good at it!
The last station we headed over to was the jump rope station. I turned the rope with another one of the mothers and the girls took turns playing School Jump. I'm not sure what the correct name of the game is but all of the girls lined up and they had to go through each grade while we turned the ropes. For Kindergarten they had to run right through as we turned without getting tangled in the rope. For First Grade they run in and jump once and then run back out...and so on for each grade. Even though some of the girls had to "repeat" some of the grades, they all had so much fun...and the mothers did too! It was a great active activity and they definitely succeeded with an "evening of fun".
