Curious George and The Man in The Yellow Hat...
Jack loves Curious George. He loves him. I'm not talking about, "Oh Jack could watch George if there is nothing else on..." I'm talking L. O. V. E. !!!This boy could watch George for H.O.U.R.S.
He would rather watch George than do anything else and we often have to pry him away from the TV. His nightly ritual consists of a bath, a story, milk, prayers, and two episodes of Curious George. If you try to sneak and only show him one before bed, he freaks. If you show him two then he goes to bed without any problems. It is cute to see him develop this little personality with his own likes and dislikes. George is a pretty good show and Jack does learn a lot.
A few weekends ago, we saw in the paper that George was going to be at the KUED Health and Safety Fair at the U this weekend so, of course, we had to take Jack up to see it. We took him up this afternoon and he had a blast. He had his hand painted, got balloons, popcicles, fake tatoos and above all he got to meet his hero in person (all for free). George is much more popular than I gave him credit for and the line to see him was huge! I stood in line while Jack and Jason saw the sights and luckily for us, by the time I got to the front, a worker came out and said that I was going to be the last person allowed inside the tent for pictures with George. Talk about peeved... as in the people in the HUGE line behind me, as for me I was thrilled! I rushed over to get my boys and we took our magical pictures. It was such a fun day as a family. We will have to find stuff like this more often. (We found the sleeper at Costco and HELLO... is anything more perfect for him?)
On a side note, my sis went to London on Friday for a semester abroad. I am jealous and very sad to see her go. I won't see her until December 16th, so Lu, these pics are for you!
