Andrew's Work Party

A couple of weeks ago, Andrew's work hosted a party for all the employees.  We all had so much fun and we were really glad that we were able to go.  First up for the day was a Forklift Rodeo.  Deker and Bauer were a little nervous at first, but as soon as they realized what was going on, they LOVED watching the people drive the forklifts through the obstacle course. 
There was also a Balloon Maker guy there to make a balloon animal for each of the kids.  Keagan got this really cool fishing hat with a fish on the end.  I didn't get pictures of the others one, but Deker got a sword with a belt for the sword to go in and Bauer got a dog. 
After the forklift rodeo, we had a yummy lunch of Hamburgers, gourmet hot dogs, salads, fruit, etc.  There were also nachos, yummy drinks and ice cream.

Then there was prize drawings.  There were enough prizes that each employee got one and about 1/2 of the employees got a second prize.  We came away with a candy dispenser and a nice jacket. 

They also gave each employee a nice cooler filled with Boise State stuff (t-shirt, bobble head, 2 pairs of sunglasses, etc).  They also each a goodie bags filled with candy for each of the kids to take home.

After that was the Truck rodeo.  Each driver took a semi through an obstacle course which included doing a "jack knife" turn, cones and pallets that they had to drive between without touching, backing up to the dock and parallel parking.  You can't tell, but this is Andrew taking his turn.
There were also a couple of bounce houses for the kids to play in.  Keagan and Deker spent a lot of time playing on these.  Here is Deker climbing up one bounce house.
And Keagan sliding down another bounce house. 
That evening, the company hosted a very nice dinner at a local golf club for the adults, where they gave away the prizes for the people that got 1st and 2nd place in the truck rodeo.  Andrew got 3rd place, missing second place by just 9 points.  We all had such a fun day and we are hoping they do it again next year.
