Children's Heart Foundation Family Fun Day

The Children's Heart Foundation Family Fun Day was held on September 18th at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds from Noon until 5pm.
It was standing room for the Jungle Bob show at Noon.
Jungle Bob brings great animals and puts on a great show.  The kids get to touch and see animals they normally wouldn't have a chance to see.
After Jungle Bob, Joe performed a wonderful magic show for all the kids...and their parents too.
Everyone had a great time on the inflatable's.  We had something for everything...even the older kids enjoyed the human foosball table!
Most kids spent the day on this bouncer and seemed to really love it.
Although...a lot of kids loved being able to race each other through the obstacle course.  We even had some older kids (adults) race each other through the course.
Inside we had a huge table filled with many wonderful donations available for raffle.  We received so many donations and are so thankful to all of the companies for their willingness to donate their wonderful products and services for a great cause.
We also had some local vendors and school systems inside to sell their stuff and to enjoy the day.  They were wonderful and I can't wait to try everything.
Dora and Elmo made an appearance and all the children had a great time.
Buzz visited as well!
The local fire departments sent some trucks up to let the kids take a look around and pose with their fire hats.
Our big surprise was LifeFlight.  We were able to get them to land on the track at the fairgrounds.  Sadly, they were able to land and then got an emergency call, so we were not able to go and check out the helicopter.  I still liked it landing (and knowing it was for the event and not a real emergency).

  5. I can't believe you didn't tell me about this. I would've tried to come. Great job. I signed up to get your posts sent to my email and I never got any, I just figured you weren't blogging and then here you are and you have tons of new posts. Ugh.

  6. Paula, I am so glad to have had the opportunity to meet you and your boys and the lovely Miss Hope. This was a wonderful event you put on and I'm looking forward to a bigger fun day next year.
