I already told you Happy New Year, but now I want to know how did you spend it? I believe in doing whatever you want awake or not. #NoJudgement I am usually on the sofa sometimes I’m awake and other times I am asleep. This year we celebrated early.
On New Year’s Eve, the family and I decided to check out the Free Happy Noon Year’s Eve party at The Yards DC. This event is for the kids and they do a countdown at Noon because most of our kids are sleep before midnight. The event was 10 AM – 1 PM, and we arrived around 11 AM.
Prior to going the only thing, I knew was there would be a balloon drop at noon. I’m happy to say they had other entertainment for the children. This gentleman was from the Big Apple Circus. He did some juggling, some balancing, and a few other tricks. He was funny.
He captured our attention the entire time. Honestly, be brought out the kid in all of us. In the video, you will hear us cheering him on.
The Uncle Devin Show provided musical entertainment. They made it interactive for the kids and even the adults got in on the action. It was a party let me tell you.
In addition to the stage entertainment, they had a photo booth, craft table, and balloon animal station in the tent. They had cornhole and a few other options, but then it started pouring rain.
The line for the face painter was crazy long and not moving. So LittleCuteLips was not able to get her face painted. However, this little cutie pie did.
We even spotted some District MotherHued Moms in the crowd. #DMVMomTribe
It is almost time, they gave out festive hats and other accessories so we could ring it in right. The balloons were a colorful tease until the one-minute countdown to noon began.
And just like that H A P P Y N O O N Y E A R! The kids went crazy, OH MY GOSH!
After the balloon drop, most folks began to clear out. LittleCuteLips and I thought it was a good time to try and get her face painted. No such luck. While in the non-moving line I happened to look up and see the ManChild on stage. The gentlemen from the Big Apple Circus picked him to be his assistant. He was tossing rings and my kid had to catch them on his arms and around his neck. He caught them all, he was a great choice. I snapped pictures from the back of the tent and I caught some pretty dope action if I must say so myself. Thanks, Babe for the new camera lens he got me for Christmas.
We had a good time, rain and all. It was a Happy Noon Year for us.
This was the highlight of our day, five minutes before midnight we gathered in the living room and watched the ball drop. We gave hugs and kisses, shouted Happy New Year and I made the kids go to bed. The end!
