2007 Family Reunion-Kid's Games!

This year for the kids we had games with prizes for all. We also did face painting. That went over with young and old alike! Here are some of the pictures of the fun! April Teche (Jared's wife) painting Lily's face
Jenny Teche (Aaron's wife) painting some faces
Lily the cat

Kellen Teche (Jared and April Teche's son) showing off his face art
Paul Matthews (Patrick and Tracy Matthews' son), Marli Matthews (Shawn Matthews' daughter), Shawn Matthews (Carol and Greg Matthews' son), and Patrick Matthews (Greg and Carol Matthews' son) taking a ride in the golf cart!
Ethan Teche (Jared and April Teche's youngest son) showing off a fish on his forehead

Anthony Teche (Aaron and Jenny Teche's youngest son) showing off his painted face

Justin Teche (Aaron and Jenny Teche's oldest son) showing off his face art
Marli Matthews (Shawn Matthews' daughter) playing a kitty cat!

When Jenny asked Beth what she wanted on her face Beth had to think about it. She decided that she wanted a horse. Jenny did a better job than I would have. The one that she painted actually looked kind of like a horse.

The finished horse on Beth's cheek
Ethan Teche with his kitty whiskers and the fish on his forehead

Lynn even let Beth (her grand daughter) paint her face
Tracy Matthews with a frog on her face (I thought that it was a frog in your throat not on your face? I could be wrong though)
Karen Schumacher can see all and knows all thanks to the third eye made by Beth

Timber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beth with a tree on her head. I think that might hurt!

Lance was sitting by his parents and we asked him if we could paint his face. He said "Sure" When we asked what he wanted on his face he told us "Anything" Well, Lance gave the wrong answer and Karen Schumacher and Beth went to town on his face. Next time, Lance, say "I would like something tiny" Lance was a great sport! We had fun painting his face.

The finished "Scary" Lance! Thanks Lance, we had so much fun doing this
Shawn Matthews showing all what happens when you fall asleep and April has face paints in her hand
Lily showing off her face art. I swear every picture that I took of Lily turned out amazing. She is very photogenic
Below are some pictures of the kids playing one of the games. The object was to walk to the other side of the tent with the balloon in your legs. Once down there you sat on the balloon to pop it. This was a very popular game! Next year we will have to blow up more balloons!
Get Ready!
Get Set!

The next game we played we put plastic spoon handles in our mouths and had to balance an egg on it. We then had to walk down and break the finish line with out dropping the egg

Lookin' good there Lance!
The next and last game that we played was a clothes pin drop. I wanted to make it harder for the older kids so they had to stand on the picnic table. The younger kids wanted to stand up there too so they all did it from way up high! They all did a really good job even with the height.
