Yeah. I didn’t have to do the dunk tank!

The word on the street.. was wrong! It was actually a joke. I take everything pretty seriously though!  Even though I was NOT dunked.. it was a ton of fun!  However.. field days have changed GREATLY since I was in school (and I am sure many of will agree with me…)

I got up nice and early today and did a 3.5 mile run.. first fueling myself with these..

Had a good 30 min run

Felt great.. nice, hot and sweaty!

And refueled with some overnight oats!

Then.. it was time to get ready for the Picnic.  Best part about field days.. is that I get to go to work looking like this!

As for the rest of the day.. well, the pictures tell it all!!

Bouncy House

Face Painting!

How COOL is that?@!


Relay Races


Please -take a look at that water. EW. It was black. I am so thankful that my coworker went up for our grade. She is heaven sent (and she just got massive donations from my BAKE SALE 🙂 )

A Few Eats for the Kids…)

Cotton Candy & Popcorn..

Definitely a great day. No one ran away. We had a few upset tummys.. but nothing some water and the shade of a tree couldn’t fix!!

I am currently home with the fam – and want to value my time with them. I’ve had a great time with  them so far.. and will recap on that tomorrow!

Have a fabulous night?!

What were your field days like as a kid?! Did you have this sort of craziness?!

I legit just played field games!

  1. Aw looks like a BLAST! I used to love field days! We had a bunch of games and yummy foods!

  2. It looks like you had a really fun day! I’m glad you didn’t have to be dunked 😉

  3. Wow! Field day is a lot different then when I was in school. When we had field day the whole school didn’t go. Several kids from each grade were selected and we were bused to a different school and did various events. I can’t remember what all we did. I remember running around the track doing relays and stuff like that.

    Glad you had a good day!

    • Oh wow. that is super interesting that you were bussed to other schools and only some kids participated! Our whole school participated and we did relays and stff on the fields out behind our school!

  4. So much fun!! I LOVED field day back in elementary school! We’d look forward to them for weeks. 🙂

    Awesome post-run face, too. Runs that makes me want to make silly faces (as opposed to looking like I ran into a tree) are the best. 🙂

  5. Sounds like SO much FUN!!

  6. Hi there – just stumbled upon your blog – will look around more now!
    Yum overnight oats! I just ate some before bed oats, haha 🙂

  7. Aww looks like you had such a fun day!! I can’t remember the last time I did anything like that, in fact I don’t think I ever have except for birthday parties – very jealous! Our ‘field day’ at elementary school was just a sports day where we did different races and stuff but it wasn’t all that fun compared to that kind of field day!

  8. What fun! I’m so glad it all went well and I don’t blame you for not wanting to go in that water!

    Hope you have a wonderful time with your fam! 🙂

  9. Oh my gosh I LOVED field day as a kid but they definitely weren’t this great!! If I recall correctly we just went out back to our field behind our school and had different stations set up out there. Haha – pretty lame compared to the one for your kids!!

  10. Looks like a fun field day! That water is disgusting! Where did they get it from??

    • The fire truck filled it up.. but where it came from, I am not sure. It could have been from a pond.. or even the long island sound which is less then a mile down the road.
