A Very Hungry Weekend

Wow, what a busy weekend we had. Not intending to, but it developed that way.   I don't get haircut duty all that often, but B needed one, and Daddy was at work, so off I went into "Man Land", otherwise known as the barber shop.  Brant refuses to go to the "girl barber," who cuts my hair, so he and Daddy usually have a Saturday morning out together. 

We started the day at the barber shop, and progressed to the library, Mommy and B's Saturday tradition.  While there (which we hadn't been in a while) we say an advertisement for an event, later that day.  Bring your Legos and build at the library!  Needless to say, there was some excitement!   So we headed to Daddy's for lunch and then back home, briefly, for me to run to a friend's open house, and Brant to gather Legos!  A quick hour later, we were headed back to the library, and what a great event it was! The kids LOVED walking around seeing what others were building, and we each had a table for ourselves.  The Friends of the Library also provided each child with a book to take home.  What fun!  We ended the day with Daddy, furniture shopping, out to dinner and then rearranging our living room to wall-mount our tv.  And so was our crazy Saturday. 

Sunday was exciting.  After visiting a church, we (Brant, Grandma and I) had tickets to the Winston-Salem Children's Theatre.  A travelling group was putting on Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other stories.  Eric Carle being a favorite in our house, we were all excited.  It was fantastic!  It was all done kabuki style, with the puppeteers all in black (they called themselves puppet ninjas) and the puppets painted in special paint for the black lights.  IT WAS A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!   

We ended the weekend relaxing at home, just Mommy and B.  Daddy was working, so we played Legos and trains, then snuggled in for a movie, wrapping it all up with the books from the library.  Not bad for a busy weekend!

Mom and a silly B at the theater.  Hard to get a serious picture any more!

My snuck picture, which is horrible because I jiggled it, but how cool was the background for Little Cloud!?
