Kids Kingdom

How many strollers can you count?

The kids were having FUN!
It is only 10 am and the people started to roll in.....

The jail was great.
For 50 cents you could issues a warrant for an arrest of one of your friends.
The officers were more than happy to hunt you down
and arrest you for a sentence of 10 minutes.
If you were lucky enough and had a friend, they could set bail for 1 dollar.

Here is my son being arrested....
I hope this isn't a taste of the future...
