Yesterday we had a great time at Chuck E. Cheese and Build A Bear. I'm enamored of Build A Bear Workshop. You first pick out which animal you want. Kayla chose a white bear with a pink nose and some pink fur scattered throughout her body. She named her Pinky. Hunter chose a husky dog and named him Husky. He said he's a husky that doesn't like snow or cold and that he wants to stay warm. Today he changed the name to Max after a dog in the movie Snow Dogs. Both he and Kayla are crazy about their new pets and have been taking good care of them.
While Kayla was at school, Hunter played with Max nearly all day. He has such a great imagination. I got to be the vet when Max was sick. Hunter said he had a really big thorn in his side and I needed to be very careful when I took it out. "When Max gets hurt sometimes he bites people." I am crazy about kids' imagination.
When Kayla got home from school she spent about 90 minutes on homework, and then I took the kids to the movies. We saw Charlotte's Web. It was absolutely delightful. We ate popcorn and candy and drank soda while watching a great movie. My idea of a good time.
Near the theatre is a big Border's book store, so we stopped and bought the book of Charlotte's Web. Before bedtime we were able to get through the first three chapters. The kids are excited that we'll read some every day. I promised that if I didn't get to finish the book with them, that Jill would finish for them.
Jill and Todd went out to dinner while we were gone. A good night for everyone.
Tomorrow should be quiet, but Saturday Todd is doing motorcross with some friends. Jill and I plan to take the kids to a children's museum in Pasadena. Can't wait.
