I layered but I could have layered more! One of the others running the show with me brought his dog, an English Setter named Jake (sweetheart!) and he and I kept each other warm. Jake kept leaning against me and I leaned into him lol.
So I'm going to share how to make hula hoops because I think that you could totally make these at home! Warning, pics may be blurry to it being my phone and me having numbed and frozen hands :)
Step one: Get a piece of pipe!
Step 2: Fill 'er up with about a 1/2 cup of sand.
Pretty cheap and pretty fun! Even if I froze my behind off lol. It was worth it to see the smiles on the kiddos faces and laughter as they hula hooped and played with their hoops.
This website sounds like what we did pretty much: http://www.jasonunbound.com/hoops.html
Now I think I'm going to curl up in a blanket, drink some tea, and hop on to Google Reader and catch up on reading blogs :) Happy 3-day weekend everyone!
