sometime it seems like we have a lot of big days. But then I look at our lives and they are remarkably dull!
Anyway I'll divide this into two parts: Pre-Family reunion and Family reunion and the aftermath.
We have a place that my family goes to breakfast regularly enough not to need to look at the menu. It is a mile or so from the house and it is one of those places that squeezes the orange juice to order. They also are not shy with portions! The kids always get Micky Mouse pancakes and I always get a veggie omelet. We were going to go there for breakfast yesterday as I have run out of pretty much all food and have not made it to the store- maybe tomorrow- but the kids needed to eat so off we went.
Yesterday was also the day that Miss Lori from PBS Kids was having a personal appearance at Whole Foods which was across the parking lot from the breakfast place. Miss Lori you understand is the kids version of U2 or Bon Jovi or some celebrity like that. So we stopped and played there for an hour or so in unseasonably freezing cold (seriously Mother Nature it is August) and spitting rain and wind just enough to make everyone even more freezing.
The kids were thrilled. Princess had a smile plastered on her face such that I am surprised her face did not stick like that and Stinky was vibrating seriously he trembles when he gets excited. Miss Lori was great. She was warm and kind and sweet! Totally awesome- and made me feel bad for my lack of patience that happens more than I would like. Did you know she liked Micheal Jackson? Well she does! How do I know this? Princess.
They had a great time singing and dancing and learning simple choreography to songs that were about being healthy and active they loved playing a "Jump Jump Jumping " game and were so so sad to leave. But not before a picture!
