Seusspicious Behavior

We spent the afternoon at our local library celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday with a lot of other people in our community.  It was a fantastic afternoon.  The girls were amazing...not one melt-down and they followed directions.  They got high fives for that great behavior once we made it back to the van.

We got to meet the beloved Cat in the Hat.  I love to watch their expressions when they see characters like this.  It's truly what being a kid is all about...those looks of total admiration!

We stood in line for at least 30 minutes to get their faces painted. They didn't mind. In their minds, it was well worth their time.

 They ate cupcakes and played some fun games which earned the well loved sticker! IMG_1732 IMG_1749IMG_1752
One of the drama teams from a local high school put together a play from The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss. It was adorable, funny, and kept everyone's attention. IMG_1728 IMG_1729
The girls even got to pick one of their favorite books from the library to do a small segment for the local PBS station.  Peanut picked The Deer in the Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She said she liked that book because, "Pa goes hunting but doesn't shoot the deer because it has a baby and is big and wild. That made Laura and Mary happy." IMG_1756
We had a great day celebrating one of the most famous and beloved children's authors of all time! Happy 109th Birthday, Dr. Seuss! IMG_1726
