ExxonMobil Family Fun Day

The boys and I had a blast last weekend at the ExxonMobil Family Fun Day!!!  Unfortunately Ken had to work and couldn't enjoy his annual company party, but I didn't let it stop us from attending!!  I'm glad we went - it was amazing!!

The party was held on the beach at the Intercontinental Hotel.  Upon entry, the boys got pictures taken with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, a bucket of beach toys, and ExxonMobil bracelets and baseball caps.  I was given a great beach bag with sunscreen, a beach hat and a towel.

Then we proceeded to the kid zone where they boys could play carnival games (every attempt wins a prize), play on bounce houses, and have caricatures drawn. For the girls and moms, they also had stations for hair braiding, nail painting, and henna tattoos.

Nicholas' turn - yes he's wearing 2 hats.
He had so much fun at the Family Fun Day, he didn't take
the ExxonMobil hat off for 3 days! 
He even slept in the hat!!

Snakes and Ladders lawn game

Huge speakers were everywhere playing music from the DJ stand on the beach. There was a massive food tent serving breakfast from 10-11 and then lunch from noon-3. There was even an alcohol hut for adult beverages! :-)

On the water were floating volleyball nets, trampolines, and slides.

They also played games on the beach like musical chairs, potato sack races, and held a dance contest. Jaden was so excited about the dance contest and he danced his little behind off for over 30 minutes!!!  It was the LONGEST dance competition for kids ever!!!  We were all pooped by the time they selected 5 kids as winners to dance on stage.  But they chose Jaden and he was so excited to get on stage!!!  I included a very short clip so you can see some of his winning moves!!

It was insanely fun!!!  I'm so glad we went!!!  Just wish Ken could have come along... he missed a great party!
