Saturdays Top Five Laughs

I hate how life has been so busy lately that I haven't been able to post these every week. That also means that I have not been writing them down in Aiden's journel as well. This is the example of how while working makes things easier, but it also makes others harder. Here are a few that I managed to write down.

5.) Aiden's is really starting to get into imaginative play. It's great to watch him and see what he does. Its even funnier at times whenyou are sitting at the ktichen table eating your breakfast and you hear him yell at his car and then throw it ask cross the room for "being bad".

4.) We were driving in the car and Seth turned around to look at Aiden. He was looking at his finger and of course we knew that he had been picking his nose. Seth asks him if he needs a tissue. "Nope. Because I already ate it!"

3.) Same car ride. Same conversation. Seth reminds Aiden that if he needs to wipe his nose then he needs to ask for a tissue and not eat his boogies. That if he eats his boogies then a boogie monster will grow in his belly. Cue the shocked look on Aiden's face and him looking at his belly." It was so hard to keep a straight face after saying that.

2.) Rebecca is really into hide-n-seek and being chased right now. At Friendly's the other night she desides that she is going to "hide" next to the crane game there and jump out at Seth. Of course you could hear her squeals all the way at the back of the restaurant where I was wrapping up our leftovers.

1.) Last night at bedtime Aiden randomly asks me about ankles. He asked me if we have a lot of ankles. I told him that we only have 2 ankles. One on for each foot. " Only two?" Yup, only two. "Well when we get bigger we get more ankles right?" Nope just two...well one can hope that they don't get cankles in their old age. Of course I didn't say that to him.

The circus is coming to town!!!

This past weekend we took the kids to see the Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence. We did end up getting there a couple of minutes late because the state decided that Sautrday afternoon was a great day to shut down 2 out of 3 lanes on the highway to cut trees. Last year it was just us and Aiden and we did it as a special day for him since Rebecca was just 3mos old. Aiden loved the show. Rebecca did pretty well also. She sat still for half of the show and then I know she was starting to get tired again. Luckily we were down in the first row so we had a little extra leg room and we were able to put her down so that she could stand on her own and watch the show. Towards the end I did have to take her up to the mezzanine level so she could run free. Part of me wants to make this a yearly tradition, but Seth is not so sure. He asked me if I went the circus every year when I was little. I looked at him and said "No! Because we were poor." I did go one time and that was because it was at a girls birthday party and I am pretty sure the parent's paid for the tickets. Well....we'll see what we do. I guess there is only so many shows and at some point even if the theme is different, the show is essentially the same stuff. Either way the kids had a blast and I still enjoy seeing the circus.

 Aiden liked the giant "kitties"

 The look like little bubbles or ornaments just hanging there.

 These twins did most of their act hanging in the air by their hair.
 Shaolin Masters.
 Jumping blind folded through a ringing of flaming swords.

 Enjoying some popcorn.

 Laughing at the clowns.

 Cat tricks.

 Aidens favorite- the elephants.
 4 cyclists. Pretty neat motion shot. They had the blacklights on them.
 There are 8 motorcycles in that globe right now.

 Here comes the Dragon. The theme of the show.

Play Ball

This past Friday Seth and I went to the Red Sox game. He was given 4 tickets from one of his clients so we took our friend Sean and his girlfriend Caitlin with us. It was nice to get out and have some adult interaction time. Our nights out usually consist of us getting dinner and then going to the movies so this was a nice change. We did toy with the idea of taking the kids to the game, but after a long day at daycare to take them to a 7:00 game would have been rough. Especially since Rebecca pretty much goes to bed around 6:30 on school nights and Friday she really didn't nap much at school either so she went to bed earlier then she normally does.

We arrived at Fenway Park. Traffic wasn't too bad. We got there and included in the tickets were passes to the Rooters Clubhouse. Its not like memoriabelia area that is at the TD Garden, but they had a few things up there to look at. We ate dinner up there and then headed down to the field to watch the game. I was definitely glad that we did not bring the kids because as the night went on it got colder out and the game ended up going into extra innings. We didn't stay until the end of the game because at that point it was almost 11pm and we didn't get home until almost midnight.

 Don't remember the payers name, but when he swung the bat it went flying into the stands.

The seats were pretty good. Probably about 25 rows back. We were definitely in the area to catch a potential foul ball. None really came that close to us this game. Maybe next time.
