When Dan & I went to NYC in 2004, we got to see STOMP in an Off-Broadway production.  We LOVED it.  It was one of my favorite parts of the trip.  Fast forward several years to Jonah being about 2-3 years old.  He started playing percussion at church with Matthew on Wednesday nights.  I told Dan way back then that I'd love for Jonah to see STOMP.  I started looking at Ticketmaster to see if it came near us.  It never did.

When we moved to Florida, I started watching for it again.  I never saw it.  Then, just a couple of weeks ago, I got an email for last chance tickets.  I had no idea it was even coming.  So, I jumped on the opportunity to get tickets for him.  It just happened to be the exact same week that we already had tickets to see The Lion King.  In a perfect world, I never would have taken him to both in the same week but it just landed that way.

HE LOVED IT!  Since the three of us were seeing The Lion King later that week, I just got two tickets for STOMP.  So, he and Dan got a special night out.  

If you aren't familiar with STOMP, I've embedded a couple of videos.  You'll see Jonah's video at the end.  He walked right in to put on a show for me.  

 And now, for your viewing pleasure...

He isn't crying

We just got home from seeing the traveling Broadway production of THE LION KING.  When Mufasa died, Jonah leaned over and said "I'm not crying, I just have water coming out of my eyes!"

Important Information

Jonah's teacher sent a note home on Monday saying his class was learning about community helpers this week.  Because of all the talk of various community helpers, they also asked us to be sure our kids knew how to call 911, home phone number and home address.

As Jonah was working on his homework a few minutes ago, I was quizzing him on those numbers.  I asked his home phone number and he spouted it off to me.  Then I asked if he knew his home address.  He knew the street for sure but gets a little messed up on his house numbers.  After working on our home address for a bit, I said "Okay, what is the most important number you need to know?"

He never skipped a beat and said "The password to your iPad or iPhone so I can play games?"

Let's hope we don't have a true medical emergency around here because I'm pretty sure our iPad password is not going to help much!

Spring Break Disney Day

When our Spring Break plans changed, we tried to come up with a couple of fun things to do with the boys.  Dan ended up working all week but was still off on Friday.  So, we went to Magic Kingdom for the day.  

We rode the boat over instead of the Monorail.  Dan sat with the boys on the row in front of me.  I was so glad because at one point, Micah leaned his head onto Jonah's shoulder and I was behind them to capture it.  So very sweet.  

I handed Dan my camera so he could get it from the front.  No camera could ever capture the love these two have between them.  

The train station in the old Toon Town finally reopened so we got on that and rode around to see all of the new stuff.  The boys spotted my snack bag and started eating before we even left the train station.  

Jonah and Dan stopped to ride the newly reopened Goofy's Barnstormer ride.  Micah and I kept walking and ended up at the People Mover in Tomorrow Land.  We rode it around a couple of times and then met up with Dan and Jonah.

We had Fast Passes for the Buzz Lightyear ride.  The big boys are all serious about the game portion of the ride, so I always take Micah and let him just spin us around and pretend to shoot the laser gun.  

I snapped pictures of the picture screen on the way out.  Micah looks awfully tired.  Dan looks awfully intense.  

We left there and went to the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.   That was Micah's favorite part of the day.  He was so tuned in.  He giggled, clapped and danced.  It was so fun to watch him.  

We decided to stay for the Mainstreet Electric Light Parade and Fireworks even though it was super late.  Micah had been all day with no nap but hung in there like a champ. 

He did well until we took him out of the stroller so he could see better.  Once he was out, he wanted down.  If you've ever sat there for fireworks or parade viewing, then you know that getting down is not an option.  He was not happy about having to stay in Dan's arms.  

He finally fell asleep during the last ten minutes of the fireworks.  Sweet boy was OUT.  He slept until we made it to the car and then was awake for the whole ride home.  


They both LOVE spaghetti!
