Out to the movies

Zachary loved his first cinematic experience, The Muppets. He was such a good boy, he sat through the entire movie, and danced/wiggled to several of the big musical numbers. Afterward when asked he stated that the "best part was when the new muppet was on the electric fence" closely followed by the whistling act in the muppet show. He thought the screen that was so BIG his hands almost touched behind his bac, he enjoyed the huge bag of popcorn, and the only down side was the sound got a little load. Overall AWESOME movie and experience we're glad we waited until now.

Chicken on a what?

video

Zachary had his first violin recital today.  He played the old classic, "Chicken on a Fencepost". (No, I had never heard of it either :> ).  I'm obviously biased, but I think he *rocked* it. 

(and yes, he did pick out his fancy outfit, all by himself.)
(he's the short one.)

Sarah to her Mom "Hey do you think you could grab some asprin while you're up?"

Zachary "What's Asprin?"

Me "Zachary, can you say salicylic acid? It come from willow bark, people used to chew ...."

Zachary "No, Asprin......I know Asprin"

"like that book ... the mouse ... and the boy... and the mouse finds an Asprin with the motercycle"

FYI we read the Mouse and the motercycle more than six months ago! And I think this proves elephantine memory is genetic!
