we're big pbs fans in our house. in fact, the girls don't really know that there are other channels available to them. which i won't lie, is nice. they're huge fans of word world, super why and wild kratts so when the advertisements for "get up and go day" started airing, they were slightly excited. they knew that on august 3rd, mr. steve was coming back to madison. lucky for me, andy's parents were in town for the weekend, so i had an adult for each child at this super busy event. another plus? it's absolutely free! it only cost me $1.87 for parking for a morning of fun.
the girls were over the moon when they spied super why as soon as we got there. we stood in line to get our photo snapped – where i happened to run into a friend from our birthing class with camryn – and leighton spent all weekend telling everyone that super why wears gloves. (ahem, part of his costume.) who knew the "real" super why wore gloevs!
oh, iphone i love thee. i was wearing carson in my moby – hello personal heater on a 90+ degree day! – so it was great to be able to snap photos easily with one hand. love this shot of the girls with nana and papi.
oh the simple joys of childhood. suprisingly they didn't fight on who was going to be bert and who was going to be ernie.
one of the bubble stations that they had set up. luckily little bubble solution was ingested by leighton.
another favorite shot from the day. yet more bubbles. we're big fans of bubbles so this was a hit.
another highlight was getting to climb into a firetruck. one of the firemen was awesome with the girls and sat and listened to leighton jabber endlessly while we waited our turn.
thanks again to nana and papi for helping to make our outing such a fun – and stress free for mama! – event.
