They had so much fun doing their cute dance, and we all had so much fun watching! I just wish I would have remembered to bring my video camera. I NEVER seem to remember that!
"Mom, come here! You HAVE to see this!" Is what Joshy was yelling from outside in our front yard. So I went out, and this is what I see:
I've seen a few too many Black and Brown Widows lately -- IN OUR YARD -- and it is really starting to freak me out. My kids play outside ALL THE TIME. I think it's time to spray again!! ICK!
Some took it more seriously than others...this is my friend Tom's car, complete with propeller and remote control! It was part of the "Anything Goes" Category. It was AWESOME!
Even though my car was cute, it was slow...mainly due to aerodynamics, placement of weight and the fact that the wheels were crooked. :) Oh well, it was my 1st EVER!
I won the "Tortoise Award" -- I'm sure you can figure that out!
Jakob as "Super Why" and Joshy as "Alpha Pig"
Jakob enjoyed coloring...
...Joshy enjoyed story time...
...Joshy also played bingo and won some tattoos...
...and here they are with a huge Super Why cutout...
Even though I thought it was pretty lame, they seemed to have fun. But when it was time to go they started freaking out because we weren't buying anything. Typical! Oh well...it got them out of the house for a bit so Brad could get some work done! :)
If you haven't heard of this show, check it out. It's usually on at 8:30am on PBS.
Joshy hates his curls. I LOVE his curls. He's 4 so I should still have some say in how he has his hair cut, right? Well, I made the mistake of promising to give him a "hair-a-cut" like Jakob's (I love how he always wants to be like his big brother!) once he turned 4 and after I had gotten some cute pics of him with his curls. His dream came true last Saturday... So now he looks like a completely different and OLDER kid...and yes, I miss his curls...but I love seeing how happy it makes him. He asked me if his hair will still be curly when he's 10. I answered, "yes." To which he replied, "But it's not curly right now!" I don't think he understands that even though it's short, it's still curly! Maybe I need to read him that Shel Silverstein poem about the wavy head. Does anyone remember that?
*EDIT* Here's the poem:
I thought that I had wavy hair
Until I shaved.
Instead, I find that I have straight hair
And a very wavy head.
Written by Shel Silverstein (1930-1999)
