there were these two boys.
if you asked them what their summer consisted of, mostly you'd get,
so i asked them if they wanted to go to the library.
the library. in the summer.
(which, in my life time, the library was actually one of mine and my sister's favorite places to go in the summer...we'd stack the books up high and nestle down on the couch after we got back and read read read. and when we weren't reading, we were pretending everything in the whole world that you could pretend.)
i was kinda expecting that idea to get shot down right away.
from these boys, i didn't expect much enthusiasm for that idea.
but both were pumped. i got a,
from both of them.
so we went.
Dan Wardell is famous in the Iowa area.
for kiddos that watch PBS.
He brings storytime and imagination alive for kids-which is much needed in this time and age.
and surprisingly, the day was a huge blessing to me-the boys did great at listening, participating, and they got along so well with each other!
after all that excitement, we went to BK to grab a bite to eat.
They were so excited.
L loved the camera. He kept asking me to take pictures of them.
and of course, I was more than happy to!
after all that good excitement, the boys and us manned the snack shack during the game time.
i had to correct them a couple times from saying,
"What can I help you with?"
"What would you like?"
and ending with,
C kept turning around and whispering, "what do i say again?"
they even got a tip (a whole quarter for each) from a nice lady, who said they had great manners! whoo!
they each bought themselves a sucker. chocolate for L and blueberry for C.
after all that selling, L and I settled down to cheer for C while he played baseball.
and then lil man L decided he was bored and found himself a home under the bleachers, with my cell phone, and a bag of popcorn.
perfect and content.
after a day of reading, eating, playing, and selling, that concludes are big day for these lil guys.
i know, so many pictures, and probably not enough commentary, but with some things, pictures just say way more than words.
hope you enjoy!
(p.s. drop me a comment-i'd love to hear your input on my photo attempts!)
