Another weekend with Nonna & Poppa

A few weekends ago, we headed back home. The local boys basketball team was in the playoffs and we thought we would go to watch the game. We had to get there 1 1/2 hours early just to get a seat! Well, as you can imagine, entertaining a toddler in bleachers with tons of people isn’t an easy task. We just kept thinking once the game starts, she’ll be just as excited as we are. She was not! As soon as they made the first dunk, the crowd went wild. I think Avery thought they were all screaming because the building was on fire or something...she was terrified! We left immediately. So not many pictures from that exciting game! By the way, they did go on to WIN the state championship! YAY VIKINGS!

The next day, I read about a Wild Things event. I assumed that meant there would be gators, lizards, snakes and such. As much as Avery loves animals, I thought it would be fun for her. Again, lol. There were mainly old men talking about things like what kind of seeds different birds eat. We stay about 5 minutes, enough time to see the one live animal - a snake. Nonna was brave to touch him to encourage Avery, but she was not impressed. There was no way she was going near that snake. I guess that isn’t such a bad thing though!

Poor Avery - I think she needed a Chuck E Cheese run in there.
