WOW, what a great Monday we had! First off, my oldest son (10) Jacob and I went for a little exercise walk around the block. It was about 30 mintues, and 2 miles. I felt good, and I think he was very proud of his efforts.
At 11:45, we walked to the library (only about a 3 minute drive) for the cities "free lunch" program. The kids were SO excited, and had a great time :) We checked out a few books, signed up for the summer reading program, and headed home.
At 2:00, we walked back to the library to see a Magic Show. It was AWESOME! Tom Foolery was the guys name (ha!) and he was a blast! Kids really liked the show.
Then, at 5:15, we headed for Chillicothe, where we saw the Techumseh! Outdoor Drama Performance. WOW! It was amazing. They needed volunteers to come and wash down the seats and be ushers, and they'd give you free admission. So, the kids and I were there at 6pm, washing down the seats. The kids really got into it, and had a good time (well, I could tell that Jacob, 10, was thinking that there was better things he could think of doing - lol!).
My hubby was a bit late in getting there (about 7:00), and joined us as the kids were eating a popcicle in the Food Area after the cleaning was done. He'd been a few weeks previous, and helped out then also. The show started at 8:00, and was FABULOUS!!! We really enjoyed it.
The set was magnificent - they even had a large pond that they used. Horses, guns, cannons, canoes, fire - I was blown away! I'd recommend a trip to anyone coming this direction :) It would be well worth your time :)
We didn't even get home until about 11 pm (yeah, the kids said that they LOVED the show, but asked if next time we could have it start a little earlier, cause they were tired - lol!) So, it's midnight (or past!) as I'm finishing up this post. You all should be lucky that I LIKE YOU so much. I'm gonna be sleepy tomorrow :)
This WordArt request is from Kait. What a great quote it is. LOVE Ben Franklin - we were watching the musical 1776 the other day with the kids (have you seen it?), and we've been singing "Sit Down John, Somebody Open Up A Window" ever since! So funny :) The kids really liked it, and we had a great time watching it :)
Anyway, got a little off track there - lol! Click on the image below to go to my 4shared account and download the png file, and leave some love if you like my work :) Thanks girls!!!
