Before I post about Christmas and move on to 2012 I wanted to tie up a few loose ends from 2011.
A few months ago Gigi and I took Griffin to see his first movie in a real movie theater! It was a Thomas the Train movie and to say he loved it would be an understatement. Now, normally I would have NO DESIRE to take Griffin to a movie because anyone who knows this kid knows that he does. not. sit. still. BUT - this was an hour long Thomas movie during the middle of the day AND we had coupons, so I figured we'd give it a try. Griffin is so in love with anything Thomas that I figured he'd be pretty captivated...turns out I was right. It was a great experience and Griffin talked about going to see this movie for quite a while afterwards.
|I think this was before the movie even started. He was already interested in everything going on.|
|Poor Percy thinks his best friend Thomas doesn't have time for him anymore. Oh the drama of Thomas and his friends.|
|About 45 minutes into the movie Griffin came out of his trance and realized he needed some "fruit ray rays"...this is what he calls his Welch's Fruit Snacks (a favorite around here).|
|After the movie we treated ourselves to McDonald's.|
|Griffin has a new love for dipping things in ketchup!|
This is just a picture that I snapped in the car one day of
Ray Charles Griffin reading his book with his sunglasses. He likes wearing them, but doesn't keep them on very well. Not easy for Mama to help with the glasses while I'm trying to drive, so we don't wear them often.
These next few photos are from this fun place we've discovered called Catch Air. Our friend Tate invited us to check it out with him to see if it was worthy of this 2nd birthday party. It certainly was, so - lucky us - we got to go back a few weeks later to celebrate!
|Griffin called this "obstacle" the Shake, Shake Bridge - one of our thousands of Thomas references during the course of a day.|
|Tate and Griffin - best buds and double trouble!!|
