Silly Safari

Tonight was the big Silly Safari at home and at school. We had so much fun! Here at home the kitchen was transformed into a jungle. There were vines hanging in the doorway with leaves and flowers, the table had wild animals protecting all of the jungle fruit, around every corner was an animal staring you down. Nathan thought it was rather "slick" (a new word he picked up from papaw). After a yummy dinner with my parents we made it to the safari at school. They had real wild animals that Safari Dave showed everyone, snakes, owls, turtles and a ferocious bunny. The kids had to answer questions about animals to receive clues to a riddle, a story teller told safari themed stories while the kids munched on animal crackers and jungle juice and they got their pictures taken on a jeep with stuffed animals. Nathan showed us all of his little friends. The little girls just smiled and waved at him. He's already a lady's man! I could literally feel my heart break when each girl said "Hi Nathan!" in their sweet little voices. All that I could think of is that I should start home schooling him!
Brandon just about wore all of us out. He wanted to be held, he wanted down, he didn't want to hold our hands, he wanted to look at the fish, he wanted his water, where's bubba, up and down and up and down! Holy cow that child has some energy! But after we came home and said our good byes to Nana and Papaw, Brandon was ready for bed. So two minutes later, he was out like a light. Nathan is now soaking in the tub, roaring like a lion and singing some song I've never heard before. I don't think he'll be conscience for very much longer. Let's just hope anyway!
