Photos of the Day 02/03/13
Friday night my husband and I attended the Big Book Club Getaway at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville CT. Saturday I went back and took the kids. I made a deal – we could do the fun stuff at the casino AFTER they do some of the things I needed (wanted) to do. Since they had never been to the casino they willingly made the deal.
Even if we just walked around they would have been extremely happy. All the lights, food, sounds, people, and more. They were excited even by the height of the parking garage.
So this is what they did while attending events with me – they could barely contain their excitement…
They actually only sat like this during the presentations when they needed to be quiet. They actually had a really good time interacting with the authors and illustrators right along with me.
In fact, Sephora actually received her very first official book review request. She has participated in some with me but the requests were made through me. Today, the request was made directly to her, the book was given directly to her and the expectations were given to her. She was very mature about the entire situation – I am so proud of her. She has already read most of the book…
Then we spent about an hour in the arcade and you can imagine just how much money two kids can blow through very quickly in a top notch, expensive casino arcade. But it was less expensive than it would have been for a sitter and we had a good day.
Last, we just enjoyed some food and took some photos.
