Project 365, Day 80 (3/21/09) A Family AfFAIR

Luckily everyone was healthy enough to get out of the house today. The kids and I headed down to MCC Middle School for "A Family AfFAIR". It was our first time attending, and we had a blast!

Several fire departments were on site to show off their engines, along with members of the mounted police department and even the Mason County Mobile Command Center.

Inside was a labyrinth of activities and information... each classroom being set up by a different community organization. There was plenty to keep the kids busy

while the parents learned more about these organizations. Some activities were just for fun, while others served a cause. Memorial Medical Center of Ludington provided endless art supplies for the kids to make "Get Well" cards for MMC patients.

We topped off the day with a quick horse-drawn carriage ride

and headed home to rest off the day's excitement.
