Yesterday afternoon Jonathan and I took the boys to Veggie Tales Live. I don't know about you, but around here we love ourselves some Veggie Tales. Elijah definitely qualifies as a fanatic, as he has been known to put a hat on sideways and hop around the house while answering only to "Jr." He also draws the Veggie Tales characters. And draws them. And draws them. Then he draws them some more. Miles and Ella are following right in line and really enjoy the videos. So, when we heard they were coming to town, we had to take the boys. Dora or Diego or Disney on Ice we can ignore requests to go to, because those would be painful. And I mean slow death painful. But I enjoyed Veggie Tales, and I think Jonathan did, too, although some of the actual people's dance moves were disturbing in a bad dancing kind of way. Bad moves, not lude (of course!). Don't tell Ella, but she just didn't make the cut this time.
Here they are as the Boyz in the Sink.Miles chose the pirate hat from The Pirates who don't do Anything. It's almost as big as he is. He's been wearing it while saying "aye, aye captain!" But I keep making him walk the plank.
They wanted everyone to do the dance with this one, and although we did not, the sweet woman in front of us thoroughly got down. It was impressive, people.
Unfortunately they didn't have a Junior hat, so Elijah defaulted to the next best, Larry Boy. He wore it all day today. He had today off from school so he wore it at home. At the Y. At Pizza Hut when we met Ian, Anita and Lily. At the monogramming shop. At Publix. Evidently he likes it. We had fun.
Tonight we will rest, because tomorrow night we will take the boys to the fair. It's so much fun, with the exception of all the money flying out of the window... but it's totally worth the smiles on their faces. Oh, yeah, don't tell Ella, but she's not going to the fair either. Don't feel too bad for her - this is Miles first trip to the fair. She can go next year. Maybe.
