Fancy Shirts & Pixie Sticks?

Bennett found a fancy shirt in his closet.  (The great thing about B's growth chart is that his clothes last a long time...)  He decided he needed to go somewhere fancy in his fancy shirt.  He asked me if we could go on a date.  Certainly, IF we could find a babysitter for Harps.  Fortunately, Andy was available - and he's cheap.

Bennett and I went to an afternoon showing of "Gnomeo and Juliet", and of course, we purchased the obligatory kid's combo of popcorn and beverage.  The above stated combo comes with a pixie stick.  Really?  Who thought giving a kid a pixie stick before a 90 minute movie was a good idea?  Probably those same people who believe No Child should be Left Behind by 2014...  But, I digress...

The movie was a hit.   We only had to take two breaks; one bathroom, one licorice.  I'll probably go out with him again.

On Saturday, the Prose family packed up their gear (which is a lot of gear for one night, but not too much gear that it didn't fit in the back of the mighty Prius) and headed to Brainerd for some fun at the local Holiday Inn waterpark.  The Prose family met the Kral family, and fun was had by all.  So much fun that Mama Prose took one picture.
So much fun that the kids crashed early.  IF we would have had ajoining rooms the fun would have continued longer than 8pm.  Unfortunately, there was no amount of magic to make that happen.  So, thanks to the Krals!  Next time, connected rooms and two nights (and maybe a big, huge, jug of whiskey??)

Left Unattended

The other evening, I left Bennett unattended in the bathtub (gasp!!).  I am sure I was busy doing something quite urgent, but was quickly reminded of my son, when I heard screaming, and a plugged nose gasp, from the bathroom.  "Where are those fish??  Fish!!  Where are those fish??"  I quickly peeked in the tub, and found

Bennett Daniel Prose - in full snorkel gear.
