yesterday Brian and I took Josh to the Pepsi Arena here in town to see The Wiggles live in concert. What a great experience!! Their set is simple but colourful, and the music was great. Josh stood and clapped and wiggled for virtually the entire time, only getting tuckered out towards the last 30 minutes or so. Unfortunately Greg Wiggle (the yellow one) was sick back home in Australia, so they had a guy named Sam who sort of looks like him to fill in. We didn’t care – the concert was a wonderful experience. We also saw Henry the Octopus, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and our favourite pirate, Captain Feathersword! We had great seats and were very close to a few of the Wiggles when they came out into the audience. You can see our pictures by clicking on the Photo Album link to the right.
can it really be possible? my child is a 2 year old little boy! gone is the baby that needed to be carried and cuddled, and in his place i have this super-independent boy who dances at the drop of a hat, hugs the cats to death and loves to give his mommy and daddy kisses and hugs. i can’t complain!!
1. my very own minivan – thankfully inherited from mom and dad, i’m now the proud owner/driver of a ’95 Pontiac Transport! i’m the queen of the road!! and Josh loves that he is up higher and can see lots from his carseat.
2. Thacher State Park – a beautiful place right in my own backyard (well, almost). we drove up there today and could see forever… we could see the towers of downtown Albany, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the highest mountain in Massachusetts. on a clear day, you really can see forever.
3. The Home Front Cafe in Altamont, NY – walls and tables covered with WWII memorabilia, menu with items appropriately named, good food and good prices. what’s not to like? oh and they have a box of toys at the back of the restaurant for restless kids!
if you know our family, you know that while Josh “talks” a lot… A LOT!… we still have no idea what he is saying most of the time. i have been joking to Brian that when the missionaries arrived here for our conference at church, maybe one of them would be able to translate for us…
haha! i am SMRT… we have a missionary staying at our house from Israel, and he says that Josh speaks Hebrew. for the past few days, he’s been making sounds that sound like the words for daddy, teacher, and a few other things. guess Brian will have to bone up on his biblical languages again 😀
