Riverton Hospital Health Fair

We have been seeing a ton of marketing about the Riverton Hospital Community Health fair. So we decided it would be fun to go over with the kids and see what is going on. We figured we would go for maybe a half an hour and head home, well two and a half hours laters we finally left. There was so much free stuff there for the kids to do. They had bounce houses for the kids and then each area of the hospital had either an activity or a booth with tons of free stuff. The emergency department had a teddy bear clinic where the kids got a free bear and then learned about how the treat broken bones and stitches, the primary childrens surgical center let the kids learn about anesthesia and actual got to intibate a doll (put a breathing tube in them) and then they got to use the surgical equipment to surgically remove candy from a dummy, they had info on germs and carseat safety and then outside they had all the emergency response vehicles that the kids could tour. And best of all Abby has a picture that she painted that is hung in the hospital and she found where they had hung it. They had so much fun and it was a great day to hang out together as a family.
