Dress like a lineman

Our rural electric company puts on an appreciation day for customers and their children or grandchildren. Hubby and I took Hope and Goose. Here we are at the end.......we are dressed like lineman. They gave us hats and sunglasses......You can't see my hat, hah, as it was white and blends in. I look like a cone head. My Dad would have been so proud. He was a manager of a rural electric company but he started out as a lineman.
They gave free carriage rides. Beautiful horses. See that the carriage is wrapped in plastic. It was like a sweat house. Good thing the ride was quick.
Goose loved her face painted like a dog. Poor Hope has a young boy paint hers and he had little talent. Hers was supposed to be a white and black tiger but looked like a bunny. She thought it was funny.
They had a little petting zoo. I love donkeys. This one was sweet. They had a minature horse that was acting very strange. He acted mad. We told the girls not to pet him.
The girls are off to the beach tomorrow with their parents. They will have so much fun. They got lots of things in their free goody bags that they want to take with them. They even got t-shirts.
It was a fun day with the girlie's. They really have eyes. The sun was really bright. They needed the sunglasses that they got as we left.
Hope every one's week is starting off okay. I have been busy with my online class. Only have four squares to go I will show the sampler when I finish it. This has been so much fun.
Happy To You.

Looks like a fun day. Like Jane said, that definitely looks like Cinderella's carriage! When I first saw your headline, I thought it was going to be something about football!

What fun you all have with those kids, and what special memories you are creating. Given the events of the last few days in blogland you no doubt hug them a bit tighter. Stay cool ! E

What fun you're having and I think I will add 'riding in a Cinderella carriage' on my wish list! heehee!

Haha, look at you in your lineman hat, Deb! I love it! That carriage is beautiful, but why did they have plastic around it? They should have just left it alone. It sounds like you all had a good time. Ready for the heatwave again?

I always leave here longing for grandchildren. What a fun day!

I think I have my hands filled with the banners I will be making for my garland, but please do ask others if you would like to create your own.

Thank you so much for asking me, I'm honored! Elizabeth

What a fun day this must have been. I think the carriage looked pretty - I couldn't tell that was plastic. Phew. I bet it was hot inside.

that was a beautiful day, I wonder why the little horse was upset, your grand children are so cute, that was a wonderful event and a lovely connection to your father

Janie Fox said...

That looks like a great day. I laughed at the face painting that went wrong. At least she wasn't upset! Loved the carriage....but why was it wrapped in plastic?!!! ugh.
