The old west theme turned out to be a pretty fun change. A wonderful AAC family generously supplied some country fun, including a mechanical bull. The kids had a blast with this!
There was even mini bull ridin' for the little ones. Too cute!
And it wouldn't be "old west" without roping, horse back riding, and a hayride.
This year, we had our first ever puppet act; complete with ventriloquism and a full marionette show. This was marvelous. The kids all sat attentively through the whole thing.
The activities were all wonderful, but the best part and the reason for our family gatherings is connecting and re-connecting with families who are on the same journey as you.
We would like to thank Puppets and Things on Strings for the wonderful entertainment and Brookside Gardens for a beautiful venue. And of course, thanks to all of our families for coming! It was wonderful to see you and the kiddos again.
If you weren't able to make it, please consider coming to our next family gathering, the Christmas party. Bring the kids to meet Santa. There will be great food, photo ops, cultural entertainment, and of course great fellowship. It's one of our largest events so you won't want to miss it! Make sure to mark your calenders for Saturday December 4th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. It will be at Brookside Gardens (just west of the AAC office). The cost is $20 per family with an RSVP before December 1 and $25 per family at the door.
