Kidz & Baby Expo

It has been raining quite a bit for the past few days and so we decided to take our girls to the Utah Kidz & Baby Expo on Friday to get some of their wiggles out. After Sariah's Rockin' Recorder Program, we picked up our cousin Nua and her girls and headed over to the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy. It wasn't as large an expo as I thought it would be but that didn't hinder us from enjoying the different vendors they had there. The girls took pictures with a princess from the Princess Festival booth, made a flower craft at Johann's booth, visited with a few live animals, dug for fossils at a museum booth and had their faces painted. They even scored a few free t-shirts, bracelets and candy! Ü
After making our rounds we headed over to the kids play area where they had 7 different inflatables for the kids to play on for free. It didn't take long before their shoes were sprawled on the floor and they were jumping, sliding and climbing in the jumpers. There was a balloon artist there as well and of course all of the girls wanted to get something. The artist was pretty darn amazing and I was impressed by the things she could make. Madysen & Tiara requested a bow & arrow (and it actually worked. So cool!). Sariah got a snake that actually rattled (one of my favorites) and Nohiana wanted a flower bracelet. Ü
After playing for another hour, we headed over to the concessions for french fries, sandwiches, cheeseburgers and hot dogs. It was actually really good for concession quality. Ü Nua and I purchased a few things from the booths before heading back home. Not too shabby for a day that started out gloomy!
