I was going to write a blog post in honor of my husband, father, and father-in-law and see how many puns I could throw in about our day yesterday when Mia wore her monkey costume.
But I realized that while writing it would have only made the 3 of them want to come up with more and put them in the comments, the rest of you would be groaning. So, they’ll still have the freedom to comment and show their great skills while the rest of you actually read this post in thankfulness.
This is not a cop-out guys…you know I could do it (check out the title)…I’m just trying not to scare off the 3 readers I have (who are nice and normal).
Our little monkey – we decided this was perfect this year because she mimics a lot, tries to crawl over everything, and could easily eat 2 bananas for breakfast if we weren’t worried about what we would find you know where later.
First stop was the office. She (we) scored a ton of candy there….of course, it didn’t help that Judy plopped her right in front of a giant tub of candy.
She knew just what to do, though. Take it out of one thing and put it into another (course, every once in a while she would reverse and put things back – daddy made sure to fix that right away).
Next stop was downtown to visit all the businesses. I was worried it was going to be a nightmare, but it ended up being a lot of fun. It helped that we had fun company. Thanks, friends!
After all the candy collecting was over, we went to the Cafe for dinner. We put Mia in her “usual” spot near the window. She loves sitting there and waving at everybody walking by.
Then we went home, and even though it had been a long day, we let her unwind a little and play (and get more pictures, or course).
I love that banana sewn into her pocket…
She had the best time just sitting and loading and unloading her basket over and over again.
And the best part? That basket is a new accessory! She loves purses and bags…
This is probably the best year, ’cause she was just happy to sit there and play with it. She did try to eat through the wrapper on some of them but she doesn’t get what she’s missing yet and was actually into sharing….
It was a fun, full day!
