  • My turkey leg

    We are a couple weeks out from the season opening of King Richard’s Faire. As a family we have been hosted to visit Carvershire for the past 6 years. It is one of the most fun days of the year. The family loves seeing all the great acts and eating the fun food like huge turkey legs! It is an awesome day filled with fun and humor and really nice people. The kids have had some of the best experiences there. One of the most memorable moments was The Roaming Drummer who let Andrew play on his drum. Andrew was almost 2 years old at the time and he was having a fit because we confined him to the stroller. It was also a long day and he was tired. It is the people who are at the Faire who make it the best time ever. We cannot wait to go back.

    And we want you to come with us!!!!

  • Marvel Inhumans BlackBolt Character Poster

    I am so excited for the IMAX premiere of Marvel’s Inhumans. I even bought the first tickets available to the IMAX premiere on September 1st in Providence.

    Marvel’s Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.

    The legendary comic book series will be brought to life in a way that has never been done before, as a version of the first two episodes will be shown globally in IMAX theaters for a two-week period beginning September 1st. ABC will then air the entirety of the series on the network, with additional exclusive content that can only been seen on ABC, starting FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29.

  • First Day of Zoo Camp
    Photo-A-Day #4513

    Today was Andrew’s first day of zoo camp. I have been awaiting this day for a long time. This is the first time that Andrew gets his own trip to a camp. He’s watched Eva attend these things for the past few years and I know that he has wanted his moment. Today he got his moment and he was incredibly excited to go to camp. He put on his backpack, which is still over-sized for his little frame. He ran most of the way over to the zoo, too. He’d run along a little bit and then stop and turn to us urging us to hurry up. He could not wait.

    When we got there we arrived at the same time as a girl from Andrew’s school, the new one he will be attending this year, not his old school. She also does karate. They said hello and we signed Andrew in. then he took her hand and they walked into the camp.

    We went home, the first time leaving him at a day long event. I still had to get some sleep but Allison was going out tonight so we weren’t going to be able to watch Game of Thrones together tonight. So, we told Eva to work on some project downstairs while we watched Game of thrones before I passed out. It was amazing and after it was over I passed out, HARD. I slept right through today’s eclipse. When I woke up I learned that Eva and Allison made a special eclipse viewing box and they got to see the eclipse. Eva was quite excited about it.

    At dinner Andrew told us about his day and he was quite excited about it. He spent most of the day with the little girl that he walked in with hand in hand. He was so happy to spend time with her and he even drew a picture of the two of them together.
