Usually these posts are a brief listing of the ebb and flow of our life with the boys, but occasionally we run headlong into a Big Event. This was one such week.
We sometimes forget how crazy things will be for Big Events, and this forgetfulness makes us do even crazier things.
After tickets were counted and prizes were procured, we headed home way too late and finally got some rest. In the morning we packed up the car and took a trip to some deja vu.
Indeed we were, but there was still work to be done so we thought it might be a good idea to pitch in. The light demolition work from the week before was to be followed up with something slightly heavier.
We’re told they were quite well behaved while we disassembled the shed and moved the frame across the yard. We were rewarded with a pizza lunch, but our day was far from over. We headed back home and tried to rest up a little so we’d be ready for the evening. Then, it was time. Max has been in a sports program at school for some time, and tonight we’d be attending a D-league basketball game with a special halftime show.
A little before halftime, I took a little trip with Max, returned to my seat, and switched over to my telephoto lens.
He also saw some of the cheerleaders down there, but declined to have his picture taken with them. Perhaps he’s not quite old enough for all that yet.
We were told that there would be a post-game event with his fellow performers and some of the players, so we headed down to the court to check it out.
Quite the entertaining evening for all involved. We got home entirely too late (again), so we all tried to get some rest so we could have a nice, lazy Sunday. This worked well, and the boys decided to get out all their prizes from Friday night to play. Things were noisy for a while, then suddenly became quiet.
Before I close things out, I’ll just mention that Max received the striped orange stuffed kitten for Valentine’s Day, and it’s become quite the fixture in his life. “Mittens” has her own personality, and likes to keep Max up at night with incessant (and Max-produced) meowing. We’re currently seeking a balance between supporting his imaginative play and being bothered by this misbehavior via stuffed animal proxy.
With a week like that, there are of course plenty more photos you can check out by clicking here. There are also some videos we can share before I sign off.
The Big Show
So proud of the big guy. I’d have been much more nervous down there.
The Little Guy
Not to be outdone…
Have a good week, everyone!
