Sunday Afternoon with the Family

Today was one of those pleasant but unexpected Sundays...

We went to the International Church run buy some ex-pats. They are in the process of hiring a new pastor and I wanted to hear what the pastor had to say.

After church, we headed to the International School to celebrate Maifest. The towns had Maifest celebrations at the beginning of the month, but this was a school fundraiser. Essentially, a carnival of sorts with music, games, activities for the kids, food, and several booths of people selling old books, toys, etc. There was a dunk tank, face painting, and a craft table for the kids.

When we came home, we hung out in the back playing in the sandbox and on the trampoline. I also used the lid of the sandbox as a makeshift wading pool for the kids. They had fun splashing around in it. The weather was finally warm enough today to justify that sort of activity. We concluded our day with a pizza dinner and played some boardgames with the kids before bed. All in all, it was a fun day for everyone.
