The End (of the summer reading program)

Babaloo was the last show put on by the summer reading program. The program went out with bubbles and music this year! All the kids got in on the bubble action, before the music started.

I actually got a side picture of Danger Boy smiling too!

Kid Catastrophe had more fun with the bubbles than the music, but it was all good fun!

Miss Mayhem even got in  on the bubble action, although she did hang back from the crowd of kids.

Miss Mayhem actually sat still for parts of the music!

Then, Babaloo did something really surprising, and gave 2 year old Miss Mayhem a pair of sticks and let her bang on the bucket drums with all the other kids! Tired Mom was a little  worried about them at first, but Miss Mayhem did fine.

He threw bean bags into the audience to get the kids to participate in one of the songs.

At the end, he brought out a machine that flung toilet paper all over the kids! This was also silly willy fun fun for all the kids
This was a great last show for the summer reading program!     
Tired mom forgot her camera for the "finale" which was when they give out two prizes for all participants, feed everyone pizza, and have a drawing for more prizes. KC and DB both won one of the drawings, and brought home an extra prize for doing double the required reading! Good job Danger Boy and Kid Catastrophe!

Reptile Extravaganza!!!

I was so glad I remembered to grab my camera because Danger Boy got to hold the alligator this year at the library reading program show today! The Reptile Experience is one of our favorites, but he usually picks bigger kids to hold the reptiles. I guess Danger Boy was finally big enough this year to hold one of the biggest things he brings!

I turned a corner while I was chasing after Miss Mayhem and I saw this! I was so happy since every year Danger Boy throws his hand in the air wanting to much to be the one to hold the alligator. I think this is the 3rd of 4th time we have seen this guy.

And, to add to our family's enjoyment, Kid Catastrophe got chosen to be one of many kids who held the Reticulated Python he brought with him (albino).

I was a little worried Kid Catastrophe might scream or freak out, but having a brother who is into the creepy crawly has toughened her up.
While the older kids were busy holding reptiles, Miss Mayhem discovered how much fun it is to take her own picture! I

She even smiled for a few of her own shots. How cute is that?

And, even cuter!

 Unfortunately, Tired Mom took the camera away and Miss Mayhem had a few toddler moments because of that. She was keeping Tired Mom on her toes most of the show by running around and causing her usually amount of mayhem!
