Good Morning Week!!!
(that was me saying hi to the upcoming days here.)
this past weekend was a busy one for the Smiths, since the STL Smiths were in town.
Milo is in LOVE with his cousins. They went to see Sleeping Beauty at the Marriot Lincolnshire and apparently Milo is not a big fan of the theatre. Too realistic, I'm guessing. I couldn't go, since I was working, but I have a distinct fondness for that theatre. I've been lucky enough to see quite a few shows there, and it truly founded a love for live performances in my heart. There's just something about watching it happen in front of you. SUPERCOOL.
For those who don't know, the Marriot is a theater in the round. The players run past you to get to the stage, and sometimes there's stuff happening through the entire place...behind the seats and everything. Pretty impressive to a little kid.
Except my little kid.
But I guess he wasn't the only one.
On Saturday, we went to an Easter egg hunt in Bloomingdale with the Smiths. It was supposed to be outside on a football field, but it snowed all crazy this past weekend, so it ended up being held in some middle school gym, then we went to some other place around the corner for some other weird stuff.... a Peeps eating contest (gross), and some VERY LOUD
Milo was antsy at the starting line for the hunt.
that's Gabe there on the right. My MIL and I were trying to get a decent pic of both the little boys but failed miserably.
Milo's all like...'CAN I PLEASE GO GET THOSE EGGS NOW?'
Except he does not call them eggs. He calls them bok-boks (or bawk-bawks. I haven't decided how to spell that yet). Because apparently Milo is convinced that eggs are currently chickens. Even brightly colored plastic eggs.
AND THEY'RE OFF!!!
Now, I didn't know this, but there is a VERY definite strategy for egg hunts like this. You don't start picking up the eggs right at the start, nonononooo!!!
You RUN up ahead to the other end and you will have your choice. That's what Gabe did. He got a basketful of blue eggs. The force is strong with that one.
Milo balked at the gate. Freaked out. I kinda was too. It was pretty crowded in there. But he got some candy, and believe me...he was fine.
here we are. blurrily. I think Brian kept moving the camera.
Milo met the Easter bunny.
'YOU KNOW WHAT??? THERE IS NO EASTER BUNNY!!!! OVER THERE IS JUST A GUY IN A SUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!'
Name that movie.
Milo also met the Easter...lion...
Love the shoes.
Milo waved at him numerous times.
There was a 'petting zoo' with some bunnies and some baby chicken.
Have a good day!
