A Night With Robert Munsch

Thursday we had a wonderful night. It was a bit busy. I picked up the groceries, then the boy and rushed home to drop off the refrigerated goods. I cleaned Alex up and then we headed to our favorite Fish and Chips spot Williams. Alex is becoming a real seafood junky. He finished his clams and chips in record time and then made a dent in my fish...sigh... After that we headed over to the Playhouse for our Robert Munsch story telling concert. We ran into Faith Ann's family in the lobby where there were a number of books for sale and then we headed in to take our seats with Eleni and her daughter. She scored some awesome seats for us. Mr Munsch is absolutely electric. I've never seen so many children admitting to wetting their pants just to get up on stage with him (I've Gotta Go!). As you've probably guessed from the video Alex got to share some stage time with Canada's best selling author for the story 'No Clean Clothes'. After the show we waited for an hour to get two of Alex's books autographed and it was well worth the wait.

Friday was very quiet, the biggest excitement was Matt and I renting Knocked Up which had us both in stitches. Not for the faint of heart but I loved it ;)

Saturday was the annual Beaver Apple Day and Matt and Alex were stationed at Kent's here in the city. I dropped by at about 11 and they were just about sold out of apples. Apparently Alex is quite the sales man. Other than that we've been staying inside waiting out the rainy weekend.
