Crazy Saturday

We had the wildest Saturday.  The children were playing baseball when Palisades Patrol and Station 69 raced in to escort everyone off the play yard.  Palisades Patrol informed the children ” A helicopter is going to land in a few minutes.  You can come back to play soon.”  We were allowed the watch the emergency landing.  The kids were very excited about this.  A young child nearby was raced in on an ambulance and needed to be airlifted to Children’s Hospital.  The execution by our local station was impressive.  The kids were amazed and so were parents. 

Our day continued with a hike through Temescal.  While scootin’ through the canyon we saw Dr. Dre, the rap star.  The kids tried to catch up with him but he was too fast for them.  My sister and niece arrived and we decided to practice for next week’s YMCA Track Meet so we set the kids on the line and raced each other.  A maintenance worker was so impressed with their racing that he gave them a ride across the football field on the mow cart.  The kids loved that. 

The day didn’t end there.  The kids wanted more baseball so we headed to Rustic Canyon and met up with another friend.  We had three kids hitting simultaneously off the tees and the two little girls fielding balls.  It was a riot.  A face painting table and hot dog stand were set up which ended the day off for the kids with dinner and decor perfectly!
